Mr. Marnix Eykhout
I was born in Scotland, raised in Brunei, Thailand and Oman, and eventually turned into a ‘third culture kid’. I count myself lucky that my Dutch parents gave me the opportunity to look at the world as a stage, upon which I could explore opportunities and embrace challenges.
From an early age, taking on challenges and commercialising opportunities has always excited me. This resulted in a successful first company when I was 17. After finishing my bachelors degree in Business Administration in The Netherlands, I once again felt the need to explore opportunities further afield. So I returned to the international circuit and spent four valuable years travelling between The Netherlands and Southern Africa, consulting and facilitating entrepreneurs, corporates and multinationals to make their international ambitions become a reality.
During this time I became increasingly involved in exploring how social responsibility can allow a business to grow and achieve its objectives, whilst also having a positive impact on the wider community. This culminated in my foundation a tech start-up that created tools for charities to help in online fund raising.
My ongoing journey with NRS International is one in which my entrepreneurship, passion for social impact and business comes together – a real life example of our company’s ethos of ‘Combining strengths and improving lives’.
