Nicole Smit

Nicole is based in the Brussels office. She was born in The Netherlands where she started her working career in the pharmaceutical and publishing sectors through media marketing. Since 1992 she has been living in the Brussels area where she worked more than 16 years in the HR department of a global clinical research office.

Nicole joined the European Climate Foundation team in 2009 with the start-up European Climate Foundation Brussels office. The organisation of the office was her first big challenge. From 2009 to 2012 she managed the Brussels European Climate Foundation office on top of Human Resources Management for the European Climate Foundation’s network of European offices. Since February 2012 Nicole is focusing completely on Human Resources Management due to the growth of both the Brussels office and the overall European Climate Foundation network.

Nicole speaks fluent Dutch, English, and French. She has a good knowledge of German and a basic knowledge of Greek, the language spoken at home with her husband and two kids.
