Moniek is a psychologist specialized in organizational psychology and cultural psychology. In 1989, she started working on understanding consumer behavior in a research environment at Millward Brown, which she continued doing later at Censydiam. After 15 years of being in direct contact with consumers, she decided to broaden her experience in the creative industry, first as a strategy director in design at DJPA and later on, in advertising at TBWA.
At Innate Motion, Moniek enjoys being in touch with consumers across the world, visiting them in their homes, and talking about dilemmas in daily life with her analytical sharpness and unintentional humor. These conversations are a great source of inspiration and information on which to build insights and relevant brand strategies.
Born and raised in the Netherlands, Moniek and her husband now live in Utrecht and just turned into empty nesters of their twin daughters. To lash out at this new life stage, she goes swimming in open air pools as low as 11 degrees celsius.

After trying studies in architecture and social demographics, Freek joined the Dutch army for a year as a kind of sabbatical. During that year Freek discovered his natural habit of curiosity, feeling the joy of digging into all kinds of subjects, using desk research as a tool. This finally brought him to the Library Academy in Amsterdam. After finishing his studies, he worked for almost 10 years in the advertising industry, mainly at TBWA, where he was responsible for business intelligence for the planning team. Freek joined Innate Motion mid-2010, strengthening the Life Support team, both on project support and company support. He extended his skills and is now acting as a kind of underground detective, introducing clever solutions to facilitate the company’s growth. Because of his innate modesty, he is especially thrilled by creating tangible results for others. Freek is living with his wife and two kids on the shore of the biggest lake in the Netherlands; he is proud to be part of the executive board of a medieval castle in his spare time.
