Xavier Metzelaar • Commercial Officer

Main responsbilities:

  • Acquisition and relationship management of companies
  • Sponsor- and partnerships
  • Committee coordination: Amsterdam Career Days, Aureus Business Week, Festival Week & Commercial Team
  • Responsible for the acquisition activities throughout the association 


In the coming year I will be the Commercial Officer of the 74rd board of Aureus which I’m looking forward to! As Commercial officer I am responsible for building and developing our relationships with our partners and stakeholders. Besides, I’m in charge of the acquisition of all committees and coordinate the Amsterdam Career Days, Aureus Business week and the Commercial Team.

In 2018, after graduating from high school, I started studying Economics and Business Economics at the Vrije Universiteit. At the same time, I joined Aureus as a committee member. During the three years of my bachelor, I have been a committee member of the Bachelor Club EBE, Sports Committee and last year I organized the European Study Trip towards Budapest, which was a great success!

Each committee was a new learning experience, and during the last year I was looking for new ways to develop myself before starting my master and was informed about doing a board year. After some coffees with older board members, I was sold and decided to apply. The function really motivates me since I can be in contact with many stakeholders and gives me the experience to be in contact with the corporate world.

I’m looking forward to the upcoming year and feel free to contact me anytime for a coffee!
