Marry de Gaay Fortman, Member - Lawyer and partner at Houthoff
I am a partner (and lawyer) at Houthoff, where I am primarily involved with public/private regulation issues, public economic law and corporate governance.
In addition to my law firm, I hold a number of non-executive management positions, among others as a supervisory director at De Nederlandsche Bank and as a supervisory director at KLM. In the cultural sector, I am a member of DutchCulture’s Supervisory Board, chair of the Supervisory Board at Internationaal Theater Amsterdam, and a board member at Stichting International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam.
My book Verdrink Geen Dooie Eend. De kunst van beminnelijke doeltreffendheid was published in 2018 (published in 2019 as Don’t Drown a Dead Duck, The Art of Gentle Effectiveness).
