Sophista_111124_0135_web "I know what it feels like to purchase or sell a company" 

“Takeovers are a specialist field that have fascinated me since I was a student. Each takeover process is different and the variety appeals to me enormously. The establishment of Sophista was therefore the fulfilment of a long-held desire. Because I have run my own business for many years, I also know how it 'feels' to purchase and sell a company. I understand the dilemmas and emotions facing an entrepreneur and how you can deal with these. I am extremely passionate about completing transactions successfully with an optimal result for our client, based on mutual trust."

After studying business economics and spending a few years working as an auditor, Pieter van den Berg joined specialist office supplier Dingler Kantoorcentrum BV in Beverwijk in 1995 as financial and operational director. In 1996 he transformed the company, following a management buy-out, into a nationally operating organisation. In 1999 he sold Dingler to what was then Corporate Express Inc. from the United States with the aim of expanding the activities in the Netherlands for this company - for example by means of takeovers. This objective was fully achieved by the takeover of Corporate Express by the Dutch company Buhrmann. After that, Pieter established Sophista in June 2000.
