Our People

We make a sustainable contribution to the world and the people around us.

As a boutique business, we are able to put people first. It starts with the people who work with us. Our scale ensures that everyone within the firm knows each other, creating strong bonds and ensuring optimum cooperation between our employees. All this enables us to guarantee the best service to our clients. From our offices around the world, we provide high level services with a personal approach as if we are just around the corner.

 

We realize that we work in an industry where money and profit play an important role. Corpag facilitates this for our customers, and we do that well. For us, however, making as much profit as possible is not our primary goal. We consider ourselves successful when we make a sustainable contribution to the world and the people around us. We want to have an impact on the world in which we work. This is not an empty marketing slogan, but a firm promise reflected in our House of Human Capital.

 

We do not just invest in the people around us, but without question we also invest in ourselves. Below is a small selection of the dedicated people that work with Corpag all around the world.

CÉLINE

 

Swiss - Working with Corpag since 2016 - BsC Business Administration MsC Finance, Banking & Insurance, TEP, CAMS

Was looking for a modern, forward-thinking company in the industry. Céline got convinced after her first interview that Corpag was the right choice for her. Since 2016 she's been responsible for the Swiss team and office.

 

“I really enjoy the flexibility we have in our work and the company's flat hierarchy. It’s this, combined with all the local knowledge over the various offices worldwide, which makes Corpag services different. With the international aspect of Corpag, I have built a network with colleagues all around the world. This is so valuable. Not only for my professional, but also for my personal life.”

 

“In addition, I see Corpag as a human company in a world that is normally quite cold and only profit-driven. We invest heavily in the (self) development of employees. For example via CAMS and STEP, but also via various internal training courses via Corpag Academy.”

“At Corpag, we work closely with all kinds of colleagues from all over the world.”

LEONARDO

 

Brazilian - Working with Corpag since 2018 - Study: Law

Chose a career in law, but never saw himself as an attorney. Leonardo heard about Corpag and found this job in Brazil. A job he was unconsciously always looking for, but never knew it existed.

 

“The great thing about my work is the synergy between my studies and the challenges that I now solve my daily work. Without the former education I wouldn’t know the requirements of the system. But without my current work experience, the academic education would not have been complete. In addition, I also get the opportunity to build long-term relationships with my customers. No other service provider in Brazil does that.”

 

“At Corpag, we work closely with all kinds of colleagues from all over the world. I think it's great to see how we turn all those cultural differences into an advantage for the company. I am now at the point where I consider some colleagues more as friends and family than as colleagues. How beautiful is that?”

“Being a small boutique company allows us to focus on the core of our business: to excel on service standards.”

TOMÁS

 

Spanish - Working with Corpag since 2018 - Study: International Business Management

Is happy to work for Corpag in his home country, after living and working in three different countries. Tomás helps clients and intermediaries as a Business Development Manager to set-up their corporate structure in Spain and abroad.

 

“I’ve heard about Corpag through a friend of mine who worked here already. We were also colleagues in Chile from another trust company. I got curious because of the nice words he always said about the working environment and the business culture. I can now use those words as my own. The horizontal hierarchy and focus on learning and personal growth are really distinctive. I can tell from experience.”

 

“Being a small boutique company allows us to focus on the core of our business: to excel on service standards. We gather knowledge from all over the world. We then bring this to our clients with the human touch and a long term view. In this way we help our clients from point zero all the way along.”

“I consider Corpag a warm company. This means that as a customer you are treated carefully and with diligence.”

MARINA

 

Spanish - Working with Corpag since 2020 - Study: Legal Practice

Heard about Corpag when she was working for another trust company in the Netherlands. Marina moved back to Spain and after a little while her current manager contacted her.

 

“In my previous jobs I practically worked alone. Now - working in a team - I really value the interpersonal side. It truly feels like we are working in the same direction and helping each other when necessary. This is where Corpag is different from the bigger entities where the work is more sectorised so you always do the same things. There you are more on your own. Your client’s portfolio is solely your responsibility. Here at Corpag I do not believe we are working that way, and I like that.”

 

“I consider Corpag a warm company. This means that as a customer you are treated carefully and with diligence. And as an employee you also feel the support of your colleagues, which ensures a pleasant working environment in which you can grow.”

“We really put our clients first. For them there is always a single point of contact.”

SALIH

 

Turkish - Working with Corpag since 2016 - Study: Economics, LLM

Used to have clients with Corpag before he joined the company in 2016. Salih's previous experience with Corpag made it easier for him to accept the proposal when he received a job offer. He loves the multicultural environment with inspirational colleagues.

 

“My job is to act as a bridge between our clients and their needs. In todays fast changing world we make sure that we enhance our abilities to fulfill all our clients’ needs. Even if it’s out of scope. Does the client need a financial advisor or a real estate agent? We find him one and work with them. Such tailor made service is the benefit of working with a boutique service provider like Corpag.”

 

“We really put our clients first. For them there is always a single point of contact. So they don’t have to chase all different persons like accountants, lawyers or account managers. Which is usually a big burden for a client, but not with us.”

“No matter how long I’ve been already in this business; it’s an interesting field to be in.”

KARL

 

Curaçaoan - Working at Corpag since 2008 - Study: Law

Saw the name of Corpag in the phone book and decided to send his CV. Karl is now Account Manager at the office in Curaçao.

 

“Being an Account Manager, I truly feel that I became a very important part of the business and of the business decisions of my clients. This makes my work very interesting and challenging in a positive way. I really value the daily personal contact with our clients and the trust they vested in me and the company.”

 

“No matter how long I’ve been already in this business; it’s an interesting field to be in. It’s the combination of the work atmosphere, the connection with my colleagues and the positive challenges that make me go to the office with a big smile. I’m excited to see how Corpag grew in the past couple of years and also the big potential we still have to grow even further.”

CAROLINA

 

Brazilian - Working at Corpag since 2018 - Study: Law

Discovered that Corpag was planning to open an office in the British Virgin Islands. Carolina had some talks with the management before taking the opportunity to become Managing Director in the Caribbean islands.

 

“Compared to our competitors, it’s remarkable how much time and energy Corpag invests in its people. This is reflected in the personal relationship with our customers, so that we can offer the best tailor made solutions for their business.”

 

“The company has taught me a lot in the 1.5 years that I have been working here. I have learned (and continue to learn) to be a better professional, team player and a better friend. It is very rewarding to work with colleagues that became friends.”

“The benefits of working for a small boutique service provider are great.”

AUDREY

 

Dutch - Working at Corpag since 2009 - Study: LLM

Loves to see the company and its people developing every day, while everyone remains themselves. Audrey joined Corpag in 2009 to set up the Amsterdam office.

 

“As Chief Legal Officer, I help my colleagues how to deal with international litigation and integrity matters. Over the years, I have learned how important it is just to stick to what you think is best. All in accordance to the red line within our company: integrity first.”

 

“The benefits of working for a small boutique service provider are great. One of them is being able to be part of the whole process instead of just seeing a part of it. Moreover, I enjoy working with a great team with many cultural differences to learn from every day.”

“What I’ve really learned at the Amsterdam Office, is how to balance work and private live.”

BEATRIZ

 

Brazilian - Working at Corpag since 2018 - Study: Executive MBA

Started at Corpag doing a secondment to deepen her knowledge on Trusts. Beatriz now accepted the opportunity to build a new department within the company.

 

“It’s very exciting to develop a new department. The trust and flexibility I have received to develop this project feels very special to me. The proximity I have with the owners of the company to discuss and implement new concepts, makes me very happy in my daily work. I see that my ideas are really taken into account.”

 

“What I’ve really learned at the Amsterdam Office, is how to balance work and private live. Before I’ve worked in New York, an environment where this balance obviously sometimes gets lost. This lesson, that might seem natural for most, is definitely valuable for me. Now I’ve made more room for myself, which makes me feel more focused and energetic at work.”

JAMES

Enjoys to work with colleagues from many different countries. James now manages the Hong Kong Office and their clients. This also includes providing assistance to colleagues all over the world.

 

“I love Corpag's ability of being global whilst remaining a boutique company. We have many offices all around the world, and the offices work really well together. It’s something I haven’t experienced with any other firm. This really helps us providing tailor-made solutions to our clients worldwide.”

 

“I’m lucky to be able to travel a few times per year to meet colleagues, clients and advisors face to face. This is important to be able to get new ideas and fresh energy. Here in Hong Kong I’ve gained knowledge in local laws and management skills by managing this office every day.”

“I am proud to see that Corpag is not only focused on being a profitable company.”

ANNEMARIE

 

Dutch - Working at Corpag since 2017 - Study: Certified Accountant

Got in touch with Corpag through a trade association. Annemarie is now - as Managing Director - responsible for Dutch customers and all employees at the Amsterdam office.

 

“While working for the trust industry for many years, I got to know the people behind Corpag I was really inspired by their professional and personal approach to customers. At the same time, I saw an internal organization that appealed to me a lot. What I like most about my work is the fact that we deal with so many different customers and nationalities. Never a dull moment!

 

I am proud to see that Corpag is not only focused on being a profitable company. We realize how important it is to take care of the world around us. In addition to applying the Environmental, Social and Governance policy to our customers, we have set up various programs to give the opportunity to students to follow a good education. This human part makes me proud to work here.”

“I was introduced to Corpag by a friend who worked here at the time. From the outset, I really liked the boutique style of the company. As Senior Legal Manager I am responsible for coordinating and monitoring every aspect of the management of the companies in my portfolio. All to ensure a swift and smooth running of their businesses.”

 

“Over the years I have received training on a wide array of topics to equip me to best service my clients. Apart from that, there is also an internal atmosphere in which young professionals can grow, both professionally and personally. Our open, diverse and welcoming work environment has a positive effect, not only on the working lives of the employees, but also on the clients’ business in the end.”

“Because of the short internal communication lines, we are able to react fast to our international clients all over the world. And all that in a surprising personal way.”

MAXIM

 

Dutch - Working with Corpag since 2014 - Study: International Business

Enriched his life by getting in touch with complete new cultures. Maxim moved to Hong Kong and to Singapore for Corpag and became the Managing Director Asia-Pacific.

 

“Via Corpag I got the ultimate chance to move to new countries. I got to know new cultures by opening two offices in complete different continents. Being part of the Corpag Group since 2014, I feel that the climate within the company is truly focused on people instead of Excel-spreadsheets. As an employee you benefit from the fact that Corpag is a boutique company.  This is demonstrated by the short decision making times, the independence you get as an employee and the hands-on management style.

 

I always describe myself as a ‘corporate entrepreneur’ with full support and empowerment under the Corpag wings. Working with a mix of private individuals and families, entrepreneurs and big corporations makes my daily work fun and challenging.”

“In our mission to remain a small boutique service provider, we manage to truly put the customer first and give our employees the opportunity to develop themselves at the same time.”

HENNY

 

Dutch - Working with Corpag since 2015 - Study: Accounting and Finance

Decided to move from Curacao to the United States in 2015. Henny was eager to take the opportunity to work at the Corpag office in Miami and later became Director.

 

“Before I got my current position I was already familiar with the reputable company Corpag. After working as a tax advisor in Curacao I was eager to start as relationship manager for the company’s office in Miami. Since then I have developed myself further and became Director. Being a boutique firm, I personally manage my clients’ portfolios. This personal approach ensures that every client feels truly appreciated and receives all the focus and attention they deserve.

 

In addition to my managing role, I am in charge of FATCA services for the company. Working for Corpag gave me the valuable opportunity to gain extensive knowledge and understanding of the US tax system. On a personal level my work put me in the fortunate position to build a network of great professionals in the area.”

“It gives a lot of satisfaction to see that a mid-size firm can have a positive impact on the education and personal development of other people.”

 

EWOUT

 

Dutch - Working with Corpag since 2006 - LLM, MBA

Stepped away on purpose from the typical legal, advisory or consultancy career path. Ewout started in Curaçao before becoming Group Managing Director in Amsterdam.

 

“During my MBA I first heard about Corpag, when meeting an employee of the company who was doing an executive MBA at the same university. The personal approach and the international clientele triggered me to work for Corpag. On top of that, the idea to live and work for a number of years in the Caribbean, didn’t sound like a bad one. Now, more than a decade later, I’m happy to put all my energy in protecting our mission whilst putting Corpag’s money where our mouth is: Investing in the growth of people within ánd around the company.

 

In the last years I’ve learned how to deal with different cultures by working with colleagues from five different continents. In today's role I help my colleagues by encouraging them to take responsibility for their own development. Working in a flat, boutique organization makes it easier to put the people of Corpag - and the people around our business - first.”

“With our international exposure, cultural affinities and personal approach towards the client we aim to facilitate - with a tailor made service - their international needs.”

NORBERTO

 

Brazilian - Working with Corpag since 2012 - Study: Business Administration, MBA, Law

Was a client of Corpag himself before he decided to join the office in Brazil. Norberto took over the management of the Brazilian office in 2012.

 

“Until I joined Corpag I’ve always worked for bigger size companies, which I perceived to be better organized / a better place to be. In Miami I became friends with two people from Corpag on STEP meetings and networking events. The big advantage to be part of the Corpag team is simple: no politics. Also, in a flat organisation it’s way easier to get things done and to see the extent of your capabilities and productivity. Over the last years the Brazilian office grew a lot in personal and in volume of business. Together with the team we conveyed our experience and showed we had all it took to be a regarded player in the market.

 

The Corpag approach is to connect locally with the advisors and clients as well. With a white canvas approach we solve any issue that is presented to us. This is how we can help our clients directly, when a question comes up. With this approach we truly distinguish ourselves from the rest of the market in all countries Corpag is based.”

“Our boutique approach makes that every account manager knows their clients. Therefore we are better able to address their needs with the best possible solution.”

DAVID

 

Venezuelan - Working with Corpag since 2015 - Study: LLM

Was looking for new challenges in an international environment. David started as Legal Account Manager and took the chance to become Compliance Officer in 2017.

 

“I was working for a law firm in Venezuela when I got in touch with Corpag, since we were their client. When I heard Corpag was hiring, I applied and was happy to join the team in Curaçao. With the help of the company I definitely grew a lot as a professional in the last years. This due to the internal and external courses in which Corpag encourages to participate. Besides that, the management is always available to discuss work, which is also a great opportunity to develop yourself.

 

Unique about working with this company is the lack of layers and bureaucracy. Everybody in the team is responsible for their own work in a transparent and visible manner. Which ensures the work is always done and it’s done properly.”

“We are not aiming to be the biggest, but to be the best. We want to be known for our service and excellence in our daily work.”

TOMAS

 

Chilean - Working with Corpag since 2017 - Study: Law

Established the office in Chile in order to be able to serve clients in the region. Tomas feels comfortable in a company that prefers to be the best instead of being the largest.

 

“I’ve heard about Corpag through co-workers I’ve met during my previous job. They talked very positive about the company, their policies and the people. Joining Corpag in 2017 was the best decision I could have made. The trust and the responsibilities that the company gave me to develop activities in Latin America, means a lot to me. It helped our office a lot in becoming a known party in this market and giving our clients a service based on excellence.

 

Besides some hard skills, I’ve learned how to work in a global team where everyone works with the same purpose. No hard internal competition or envy. We just learn from each others experiences and cultures. Like this we don’t only create valuable long-term relationships with our clients, but also with each other.”

ENRIQUE

Started as a Account Manager and became Director of the Miami office 3,5 years later. Enrique considers Corpag now his family, which makes the office feels like home.

 

“After finishing my MBA in 2015, I found Corpag via LinkedIn during my job search. The boutique style and the reputation of the company made me feel that I should work here. Since my first day at the office until today I’m happy to dedicate myself to satisfy our clients together with the team. Working with Corpag gives me the chance to not only build a professional, but also a personal bond with the clients. Which results in some clients becoming true friends.

 

During the last years, Corpag has become a very important part of my life. Luckily, this is not just a random group of people doing good business. We add a personal touch in everything we do. We strive to be an example firm in many ways, whilst being fully compliant following the latest global regulations.”

“We deliberately remain small, but our identity has grown. A familiar place to work which just feels like home.”

CHANEL

 

Swiss - Working with Corpag since 2013 - Study: Master of Laws


Got introduced to Corpag by a friend who was a client of the Company. Chanel started as an Account Manager in Geneva and has now grown as Client Director in the Amsterdam office.

 

“Immediately after my first contact with the people of Corpag, I felt comfortable and I directly experienced their unique management style. The genuine attention to people's professional and personal developments was very appealing to me. Still, when I talk to friends about Corpag, they are quite amazed how open and personal this company is.

 

I have gained an acute understanding and knowledge of today's International Trade Business. Our job is a people's job, which puts us on a day to day basis in front of people with a variety of backgrounds, experiences and cultures. And this is truly enriching and at the same time challenging. We are lucky to work every day in this environment and get to know and work with persons who have many different cultural background.”
