Cosmo has been trained to become a solid Chartered Accountant (1996) and has been working for one of the Big-4 for several years in the resource-market and housing corporations / real estate sector. In addition to the auditing of annual accounts, Cosmo advised organizations in the field of risk management and internal control. He also examined the risks and value of proposed mergers of housing corporations. In 2002 he furthered his specialization in the real estate sector with a master's degree in real estate.

After twelve years, Cosmo felt the need to experience the financial sector from the other side. As financial director of the development company of one of the largest housing corporations, he was responsible for the financial affairs and the operation of an important ‘developer’. During this time, he was closely involved in a major merger where he gave form to the legal and tax structure. After having also put the internal governance in order, it was time for a new challenge. In 2011 he founded Cosmo Consultancy which, in 2015, merged with EBBEN Partners. For over four years Cosmo has advised organizations under his own name in the real estate sector in the area of governance, risk and compliance, and support with financial and economic issues.

Through his involvement in litigation, Cosmo has become proficient in mediation. With this skill, he is able to better assist parties towards solutions. Providing quality customer service is where his passion lies. His critical and analytical capacity and reliability makes Cosmo a professional you can trust. In his own words: "Providing solutions to issues from clients by truly understanding it, gives me great satisfaction."
