Drs. W.P.H. (Wouter) Kolk RC


Over the past 15 years, I have held various finance leadership positions in a wide variety of highly dynamic organisational settings. Perhaps most prominently at UBER Technologies, which I joined very early on as Head of International Finance in its global mission to disrupt urban mobility. During my career I have become increasingly curious about the complex nature of the world around us and what this means for organizations in serving all their stakeholders sufficiently.


In 2019, I started a PhD trajectory at Nyenrode Business University and TU Delft. I am supervised by Prof. dr. Leen Paape and dr. ir. Igor Nikolic. My research is focused on designing organisational control systems that stimulate and support processes of social learning, adaptation and emergence in organisations.
