Born in the Netherlands, it was my wife who brought me to New Zealand in 2006. Before arrival in New Zealand I completed my Master's degree in Interdisciplinary Social Science at the University of Utrecht. Having worked as a financial adviser under another company for 2 years I started my own company in 2009 - Assure Life - which is now part of Apex Christchurch.
I have a National Certificate Financial Services Level 5. In my spare time, I enjoy the outdoors. Currently I'm training to improve my time for the Half Iron Man distance. In winter you will find me, my wife and children at the clubfields skiing or snowboarding.
We have recently had our second baby boy - Ari Fitzweijers who was born in October 2018.
