Anne-Marie Twigge as our new Managing Director as per September 1st!

As the Founder of The Next Women and in the wake of our 10th Anniversary, I am delighted to announce that we have appointed Anne-Marie Twigge as our new Managing Director as per September 1st.

She will succeed Rixt Herklots as she steps into her new position as an Executive Advisor.

Anne-Marie comes with extensive experience in brand marketing and digital propositions and has helped build and grow several start-ups and institutions internationally, having previously worked with Rabobank, ABN AMRO Clearing, Henkel and De Passage to name a few. We have also collaborated with Anne-Marie in 2020 when we co-created Working Wonders – the online talk show we delivered during the height of the pandemic.

To date The Next Women has designed and built a powerful network of leading entrepreneurs. We have formed ourselves into a trusted partner where it comes to supporting the entrepreneurial trajectories of women through learning programmes, exclusive member gatherings, coaching classes, international pitch competitions and executive partnerships that enable growth.

We are also known for our annual highlight The Next Women Top 100 and Women to Watch, our unique and anticipated presentation of high-achieving women who, through us, can empower and inspire other women to be their own best entrepreneurial self. Achievements that make me very proud of us all.

Now adding Anne-Marie to the team I believe, and look forward to, growing the ambitions we set out to do many years ago. I also want to thank Rixt for the foundation she has tenaciously helped build for us as well as her personal contributions to our member community.

If you wish to join our community or get acquainted with our new managing director please send a message to

Hope to see you soon.

Warmest regards,

Simone Brummelhuis

Founder of The Next Women
