In Memoriam: Antoinette Wessels-Voorbij

Published 9 September 2020

The Board of the T.M.C. Asser Instituut has received the sad news that our former colleague Antoinette Wessels-Voorbij (60) has passed away on September 7th.

For twenty years, Antoinette worked for T.M.C. Asser Press and the T.M.C. Asser Instituut as a marketing specialist and communications officer.

In close collaboration with the publisher of T.M.C. Asser Press and its partner publisher Springer-Verlag, Antoinette was responsible for the marketing and promotion of the T.M.C. Asser Press books and periodicals, keeping in close touch with a network of authors and suppliers. In 2017, Antoinette joined the communications department of the T.M.C. Asser Instituut as a part-time internal communications specialist.

During her years at the Asser Institute, Antoinette - always cheerful and much loved by the Asser staff - showed her capacity to continually strive for innovation and problem-solving, while cherishing the good aspects of the organisation and its history. Antoinette always had her finger on the pulse of the time, as some say.  

We will remember Antoinette for her joy and laughter, and for the dedication and team spirit she brought to T.M.C. Asser Instituut and T.M.C. Asser Press.
