Our Board of Directors:

Hilda Kibet - Chairperson

Hilda was born in Kenya and lives there until the age of 20. She studied physiotherapy in The Netherlands (B.Sc.) and runs at world-class level since 2004. She represented The Netherlands at the Olympic Games of 2008 and 2012. For years, Hilda has been helping children in Kenya, as much as possible. Together with her husband Hugo van den Broek she currently lives in Kenya most of the time. You can read a letter of our chaiperson over here.

Hugo van den Broek - Secretary

Hugo studied Human Movement Sciences and Pedagogy. Immediately after his graduation, he left for Kenya, to train there for 2 months. During his stay he met and got a relationship with Hilda Kibet. He worked as a social ability trainer for young criminals and in reintegrating sick employees back to work. Since 2002 he is a semi-professional runner and represented The Netherlands at the European Championships of 2006 and 2010. Hugo lives with Hilda in Iten, Kenya and has a Blog about their life at http://www.runninginiten.com/

Ruben Brands – Treasurer

Ruben studied Law and Business Administration. At the moment he is an entrepreneur. He doesn’t do topsport, but he likes to spend many hours on his racing bike. With Kibet4Kids, his goal is to stir up enthusiasm for this charity, and to make sure that all the donated money is used in the right way. His first trip to Kenya is planned for June 2013!

Timo Laan - General director

Timo works as a tax consultant, working mainly for medium-sized companies and wealthy individuals. In his spare time he runs regularly (but not enough). Besides that, his three children in the Netherlands keep him very busy. The fact that these children have every opportunity to go to school in The Netrerlands, is an incentive for him to make an effort for Kibet4Kids.

Lotte Lotens - Algemeen bestuurslid

Lotte is HR legal counsel at TomTom and a great fan of sports in general. Running is her big passion, but you will also find her on the spinning-bike or a pilates or yogamat. After she saw with her own eyes the great work Kibet4Kids does in Kenia she has become very enthusiastic to contribute herself. Lotte will mainly focus on communication within the foundation.
