Johan Diepens

Founder & CEO

‘Everyone is a mobilist; mobility is a basic need. I believe we should encourage people to be active, so a healthy lifestyle is part of our daily routine. Within the whole mobility system, we must remember that everyone has the right to come home!’

“>

Elizabeth Allingham

Director – North America

‘North American cities are building momentum to address mobility challenges. But there is so much left to do! I’m excited to support cities in Canada and the United States using practical and innovative ideas from the Netherlands to create local solutions.’

“>

Dagmar Köhler

Strategic Advisor

“Transport is not an end in itself but a key enabler to live, work, participate and thrive. In most parts of the world the potential of active travel is yet to be elevated. I am committed to help cities in Germany and abroad to connect with the Dutch experience and reflect on overarching goals and local necessities.”

“>

Angela van der Kloof

Strategic Advisor

‘Planning, promotion and education for cycling are great tools that contribute to making places thrive, people participate and be healthy, as well as to the quality of the living environment.’

“>

Anna Luten

Integrated Mobility and Marketing Advisor

‘Keep learning, stay open-minded, and every journey offers something new. Sometimes, stepping back is the key to moving forward.’

Anna Taillez“>

Anna Tailliez

Mobility Advisor

“Supporting the decarbonised mobility transition, via for example the design of people-oriented walking and cycling infrastructures sounds for me like a very tangible and motivating mission!”

“>

Anna Wyner

Sustainable Mobility Consultant

‘At a time when cities around the world are reclaiming public space away from cars and towards people faster than ever, I have a newfound determination to create and help enable change. I am excited to help bring Dutch expertise and experiences to the rest of the world, in hopes that we can transition to a more just, equitable, and sustainable world.’

“>

Bernhard Ensink

Strategic Advisor

‘Sustainable mobility for all – that’s what matters for me. The base for this is the combination and integration of the sub-systems walking, cycling and public transport in one sustainable mobility system. This is also crucial for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.’

“>

Brett Petzer

Mobility Advisor

‘The hard work and the resources dedicated to making claims for space in a city are a reflection of their true priorities. I want these claims to become more equitable, so that motorists must work as hard to retain parking space as cyclists and pedestrians have to work to gain safe space.’

Emily Thomason

Integrated Mobility Consultant

‘When I first discovered safe, comfortable urban cycling in the Netherlands, I knew I wanted to help bring that kind of high-quality, people-focused infrastructure to North America. I’m excited to be able to do that as a member of the Mobycon team!’

Erik Ooms

Project Developer

“We need to transform our cities into attractive, climate-neutral, and social urban spaces. Active mobility, public transport, and short traveling distances are key. I would like to conduct practice- and impact-oriented research, whereby we do not reinvent the wheel, but learn from each other and exchange knowledge and experiences between countries and regions.”

“>

Giorgia Berrevoets

Graphic Designer

‘Good graphic design tells a story. It corresponds to the purpose and idea behind a product. In my work, I always seek the perfect mix of creativity and functionality. Great design speaks for itself.’

“>

Helene Loy

Mobility Advisor

“I’m passionate about making cities more liveable by shifting the focus from cars to people. It’s important to consider all mobility needs and design urban spaces accordingly. By prioritising walking, cycling and public transport, we can create cities that are less car-dependent and more inclusive for everyone.”

“>

Lennart Nout

Manager of International Strategy

‘The interplay of different modalities within cities intrigues me. I am always looking for the best solution for the city and its inhabitants, while playing close attention to bikes. In the Netherlands and abroad I give workshops on the development of cycling culture, strategic network planning, street design and intersection design.’

Matthew Pinder

Senior Mobility Consultant

“I’ve spent much of my life dependent on a car and a large part of it without one (by choice). My lived experience of both has taught me much about what it takes to design communities where car ownership and use is an option, rather than a necessity.” 

Moniek jansen“>

Moniek Jansen

Sustainable Mobility Consultant 

‘The private use of cars still dominates the street scene. This individualistic and environmentally unfriendly form of mobility is increasingly inconsistent with our sustainable, social and accessibility goals. Within Mobycon, I work on stimulating cycling and other smart, innovative mobility solutions that increase the liveability of an area.’

Narayan Donaldson

Integrated Mobility Consultant

“So many of the world’s challenges, from climate change, to public health, to wealth inequality, have the potential to be alleviated through changes to transportation systems. That is what underlies my passion for implementing sustainable, safe and equitable transportation solutions.”

Nick Falbo

Senior Integrated Mobility Consultant

“Cities and communities in the US grapple with questions of equity, sustainability, and affordability as they grow. Part of the answer to these hard problems is found in how we build and move around our cities. As change makers we’re here to tell stories of the way things are, the good and the bad, and of the way that they can be better in the future. We’re here to help inspire communities, leaders, and agencies to reshape their cities to meet the needs of tomorrow.”

“>

Okka Maw

Integrated Mobility Consultant

“Looking at the evolution of towns and cities through the ages, we know that transit, walking and cycling are the most efficient and sustainable ways of moving people. As someone that loves to see cities grow to their full potential, I’m passionate about ensuring we tailor our movement for people.”

“>

Robin van der Griend

Sustainable Mobility Consultant and Street Designer

“I am passionate about mobility, especially in urban contexts. It is an exciting challenge to contribute to more liveable places by designing streets that work for people, regardless whether people are staying or going. Using my experience from the Netherlands and the Nordics I enjoy helping cities with becoming more sustainable, mainly through giving people better options to walk and cycle.”

“>

Stephen Kurz

Mobility Advisor

‘Though we are strongly influenced by our environment, effective urban design can help us make sustainable, healthy, and safe choices. Not because we’re more aware of our choices, but because we’re not. Good urban design makes the ‘right’ choice easy. To achieve this, I value non-traditional approaches to exploring and developing solutions to urban issues.’

Zach Vanderkooy

Integrated Mobility Advisor

‘Dutch urbanism may seem like magic at first glance, but it’s the result of courageous (and replicable) choices made by human beings. Experience from the Netherlands has tremendous power to inspire and inform the creativity we need to build more resilient, safe, equitable and prosperous communities.’

“>

Alex Roedoe

Senior Advisor

‘I combine knowledge with a strategic, structured and practical view of traffic and transport. My expertise lies in spatial planning, traffic and transport structures, the design of public space and traffic management.’

“Mobility is relevant in all aspects of life and should be accessible to all. Yet there are target groups that face mobility poverty. I want to address these issues by applying a people-centred approach within mobility.”

“>

Daan Butterman

Mobility Advisor

“How we design our city affects how we move around in it and vice versa. In my work, I use this interaction to contribute to an attractive living environment where pedestrians and cyclists come first and no one is left behind.”

“>

David Wansink

Resource Manager

‘Getting the best out of people, that’s what I like best. So that they use all their qualities and a lot of fun to achieve the jointly set goal: making society less dependent on the car! ‘

“>

Eelco Bos

‘I enjoy the challenge of a complex mobility issue. During my education in Traffic and Cultural Geography I learned how to solve these issues with professional knowledge and an eye for the environment.’

Jasper Doeven

Mobility Advisor

“The interesting aspect of mobility is that it revolves around choices; why does someone choose a particular mode of transportation? Using data, I map out the current situation. By combining it with qualitative research, input from stakeholders, and expertise from colleagues, we arrive at a fitting recommendation.”

“>

Johan Eggink

Mobility Advisor

“Mobility is interesting, a combination of all modes of transportation and essential. I like to contribute to the optimal functioning of this comprehensive mobility system in our increasingly busy society and ensure better accessibility.”

“>

Kristel Bronsvoort

Mobility Advisor

“In the transition to a sustainable mobility system, it is crucial to determine the motivations of travelers to choose sustainable mobility options. I uncover this through research and provide targeted advice on how to encourage travelers to make sustainable choices.”

“>

Lian de Jong

Mobility Advisor

“Mobility is for everyone, but everyone is different. That’s why alternatives to the car are only successful when you truly understand the behavior and choices of the end user and respond accordingly. I view things through the traveler’s perspective, working in this way on sustainable mobility solutions for everyone.”

“>

Mandy Bufus

Business Developer

“Linking aspects together to achieve the best end result is where my passion lies. I do not shy away from challenges. Marketing is my specialty.”

“>

Marc Schenk

Strategic Mobility Advisor

“Mobility is part of everyday life and for everyone. Everyone also has an opinion on how it can be improved or changed. I derive energy from searching for solutions that benefit everyone or make them happy, while simultaneously making the world a bit safer, more livable, and accessible. Thinking in opportunities and possibilities.”

“>

Marijn Diepens

Online Media

“In addition to installing cameras for research purposes, I also create videos.

“Traffic and transportation are incredibly broad subjects. It’s crucial to substantiate solutions for mobility issues with thorough research. With the increasing availability of data, I see a great opportunity to address challenges even more precisely.”

“>

Mirjam de Bok

Mobility Advisor

‘The influence of mobility on our society is enormous. I believe that people, rather than cars, should be the focus of attention when we are designing public space and mobility policies. That is why I strive to take an integrated approach to mobility issues while keeping the human factor in mind. In this way, we can achieve a society that is less dependent on the car.’
