Ramphastos Investments appoints Freek Smolders as partner

Rhenen / Amsterdam, 2 May 2023 – Ramphastos Investments has appointed Freek Smolders as partner. Smolders, who has been with Ramphastos Investments since 2012, will be responsible for the investment company’s real estate investments.

Freek Smolders (42) studied Fiscal Economics at Tilburg University. He worked, among others, at consultancy firm Deloitte and joined High Tech Campus Eindhoven in 2012 as Managing Director on behalf of Ramphastos Investments. This technology-focused business campus was owned from 2012 to 2021 by Marcel Boekhoorn and the investment company he founded, Ramphastos Investments. At the High Tech Campus Smolders worked closely with Jan Willem Neggers, recently appointed as CEO of Ramphastos.

Freek Smolders: “I am extremely happy with my appointment as a partner of Ramphastos Investments. Although I have of course mainly been engaged with the High Tech Campus in recent years, I have also been involved in other Ramphastos investments. These were all real estate projects, which will also be my focus area as a partner. I am looking forward to fleshing out the strategy within Ramphastos in the coming years, to put more focus on real estate and further develop the real estate portfolio.”

Jan Willem Neggers: “Freek and I have worked together intensively in recent years. He works with great passion and he has made an important contribution to the success of the High Tech Campus. I am therefore delighted that he will now apply his knowledge and experience as a partner of Ramphastos to further expand our real estate portfolio.”

With the appointment of Freek Smolders, Ramphastos Investments’ partner group consists of seven people.
