Our people get things done, with a personal touch

 

Let us introduce ourselves

Management team

Rob van Wesel

director internal audit | sales

Working 20,5 years at PwC, with a focus on advising & auditing ERP and GRC technology, it was time for something else. With BR1GHT I really can make a difference and add value to clients in everything I do. I help clients to get the most out of technology, aligned with their way-of-working and ambition. Working together means for me that I am involved all the way and take the extra step.

"Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated."

I live in Nuenen, in North-Brabant, where van Gogh created some of his famous paintings. I love spending time with my family and friends and live life the burgundic way. In the wintertime I like to hit the slopes and enjoy the mountains of Austria and France. During summer I take the time to explore Italy, its flora & fauna, culture and cities and come to rest at lake Garda. 

Linda Nyvelius

director Scandinavia | marketing

Started my career as a lawyer before I discovered that the GRC community was much more interesting when I joined the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) Sweden. Became CEO of IIA Sweden in 2015. After starting at BR1GHT in 2021, I am supporting the GRC professionals in a different way. I am strong in helping my clients all the way from needs identification to go-live.

"If you are not willing to be a fool, you can’t become a master"

I was born and raised in Sweden, married, living in Amsterdam together with my husband and beautiful daughter. I enjoy spending time with family and friends and to try new things. Famously bad at directions and roller skating, but much better at dancing and learning song lyrics by heart. Travelling to Scandinavia, seeing my family combining my BR1GHT responsibilities.

Ronald Teuthof

managing director

After 29 years at PwC, I needed a change, and BR1GHT was born. My focus lies on technology and control.. My passion is to bring clients, partners and specialists together on a journey to become world class with lots of fun on the way. I teach Continuous Monitoring at the University of Amsterdam where I also graduated as Master, Registered Accountant and IT-auditor.

"The best way to predict your future, is to create it yourself"

Beside watching my favorite soccer club Ajax Amsterdam, I love cultures and meet new people. I like to backpack into the nature of the USA, Asia or South America. I try to write a series of novels about The Netherlands in the 17th century, but somehow got stuck after chapter 3 (have a look at my site at (the dutchgoldenage). At least once a week I jump on my mountain bike to stay fit and in shape. 

Janine Riedewald

director Suriname | compliance

Before BR1GHT, my 15-year career had a focus in banking in Suriname and the States, where I spent 9 years setting up and implementing GRC functions. Prior to that I held positions in Business Advice & Project Controls. Within BR1GHT I apply what I learned from sitting at the other side of the table; this allows me to really partner with clients and help them make a move up the GRC maturity scale!

“Nothing will work unless you do” (from Maya Angelou)

Born in Suriname, lived in the Netherlands, and done University in the States. I moved back in 2006 to Suriname and now have two kids and enjoy every minute of seeing them grow up. I love to travel, try new things, especially food! I also try new recipes myself and I enjoy entertaining friends and family. No great discipline with sport, but I do yoga and circuit training to stay in balance (mind & body).

Meindert Keuning

director ccm & sap compliance | finance

Master in Information management and IT-auditor. After 13 years at KPMG and my own company, I joined forced in BR1GHT. Working together leads to more innovation and client satisfaction. With BR1GHT I aim to make a difference with controls monitoring. I am a trusted advisor, sparring partner and committed to deliver what is promised. I teach Risk & Control at the University of Amsterdam.

"Life is a caravan, drive far and be happy"

Happily married in Prinsenbeek with two sons. I am an entrepreneur both in business and my personal life. I always strive to be independent, looking for new opportunities. As a family, we like to travel around in Europe with my electric car pulling our folding car, meet people and experience.  I like to cook on my BBQ, baking fresh bread, play hockey and celebrate live with Carnaval, a beer and fun.

Now having joined the Br1ght team I will automate controls and provide clients valuable new insights with data.

"I've failed over and over again, and that is why I succeed"

I’ve always been on the lookout for new things and opportunities, but I have to admit that I get most inspiration (and support) from my family, the most constant factor in my life. Travelling with my wife, my two sons and one beautiful daughter through beautiful sceneries, reconnecting with nature, always gets me re-energised & ready to take on the next challenge or direction in our lives.
