DANIEL ESTER - Founder & chairman
Bachelor INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

Having experienced a lack of easy-access content related to asset management during his first months at Erasmus University, Daniel saw the opportunity to start the first Asset Management Student Association. By capitalizing on knowledge gained during previous internships, he directs the association according to his vision. Specifically, making asset management available to anyone, anytime.

LEC GJEKA - COMMERCIAL DIRECTOR
MASTER FINANCE & INVESTMENTS

Driven by the dynamic landscape of the financial world, I knew that I wanted to pursue a career in Finance early on. After my bachelor studies, I worked as an intern at Deloitte and Delft Circuits, where I gained first-hand experience in various financial services ranging from M&A transactions to VC deals. I believe that AMSA will add value to campus through its people, who are driven by innovation, long-term vision and profound knowledge.

TOM HANDELS - TEAM LEADER ONLINE LEARNING
BACHELOR INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

My background in video editing began through my interest in video games. Watching some of my favourite creators inspired me to start recreationally working on video recording and post production. With experience in video editing and music production using various softwares, I hope to steer AMSA in the right direction creatively. Despite my relatively limited exposure to asset management, I'm excited to see how I can channel my creativity and experience to create something unique for the association.
