de Volkskrant
FOIA expert - Researcher
My name is Marlies de Brouwer and I am 27 years old. For nearly 5 years I have been working as a researcher for the biggest quality newspaper in the Netherlands: de Volkskrant.
During my first year I investigated the remunerations of CEOs in the Netherlands.
de Volkskrant wanted one FOIA expert and they have chosen me! I have specialized myself in submitting FOIA requests under the Dutch law.
I have submitted more than 50 FOIA requests in the last 4 years. Up to now, journalists wrote 53 articles based on my FOIA documents.
