The treasurer is responsible for the financial position of the FSA. All financial transactions of the FSA go by the treasurer: from general expenses to specific event budgets. Within the board, the treasurer monitors and decides the budgets of the FSA. The treasurer must continuously stay informed of the benefits and expenses of the association. Finally, the treasurer provides periodical financial reports for the board and the supervisory board (RvC).
I am Rimmy Kloosterman, 24 years old and treasurer of the 26th board of the FSA. In my free time, I like to go to the gym and play some football or padel. You can always wake me up for a nice burger or specialty beer.
A few years ago, I started studying Economics and Business with a specialization in Accountancy at the University of Amsterdam. At the end of my bachelor, I did an internship at Ahold Delhaize. After this internship I followed the Business Administration, which I liked. However, I lacked some Finance and Accounting skills and decided to do a second master in Accountancy and Control at the UvA.
The reason I chose to do a fulltime board year at the FSA is to find out where I want to kick off my career. Within the financial sector, there are a lot of interesting sectors to consider. This board year is the ideal opportunity for me to find out what it is like to work in for instance banking, m&a and the accountancy sector. Besides, I wanted to gain more practical experience. I learned a lot during my studies, but I wanted to develop myself in a different way. This year, I got the chance to improve my analytical skills and leadership experience. Of course, a board year is also a lot of fun.
In addition to my role as treasurer, I am coordinator of the Big4 Mid4 Days, M&A Dinner and the Research Project to Taiwan.”
