It is with great pleasure that I inform you that Katherine Vos van – Liempt and Veerle van Buuren – Stramrood have accepted our offer to be the new General Manager and Event Manager of the Netherland Club of New York, taking over from Hein Jan Keijzer who will leave New York later in 2019 after having served the Club for 3 years. We wish to thank Hein Jan for his significant contribution to further establishing the Netherland Club of New York as the prime location for Dutch culture, art and ideas.

Katherine and Veerle have already started working with Hein Jan to ensure a seamless hand-over. You will have plenty of opportunity to see all three at work over the next few months and extend your well wishes.

Willem Houck,
President of The Netherland Club of NY


Katherine Vos van Liempt (Den Haag, 1984) will be the new General Manager of The Netherland Club of New York. She received her Bachelor degree in Media & Entertainment Management at the Haarlem Business School. In parallel, she built her company Arts Universal where she booked, managed and produced various shows in the Netherlands, the Middle East, and Japan. Ever since her NYC based internship in 2004 with Apricot Brown ltd, she longed to move back. When ID&T announced they were opening an office in New York, she took the opportunity and moved to NYC in 2012 as the project manager of Sensation USA.

Katherine has a true heart for theater and while in New York a dream came true when she was asked to co-produce Broadways The Visit, receiving a Tony Nomination for Best Musical. Now as General Manager of TNC Katherine looks forward to working closely with her counterpart Veerle van Buuren – Stramrood and together building and expanding on the great foundation her predecessor Hein-Jan Keijzer laid, by focusing on our wonderful community, exciting partnerships, and a dynamic cultural repertoire.


Veerle van Buuren Stramrood joins us after a successful career in corporate access and HR at ABN AMRO bank. Previously she managed the banks’ art collection as well as a marketing career at Sotheby’s, De Kunstsalon and TEFAF.  She is looking forward to building on her love for art and culture at the Netherland Club of New York as the prime location for Dutch culture, art and ideas since 1903.
