Guido Horst was appointed CEO of Ardanta in 2014. Ardanta is a specialist Funeral Insurance Company. Recently Ardanta acquired two insurance portfolios, which are now being implemented and –as a consequence- has led to substantial growth of the company. Ardanta is part of ASR Verzekeringen NV, a leading Insurance company in The Netherlands (revenue 2014 € 4.0 bn, 3.600 employees).
Horst graduated in Business Administration. Prior to his current position at Ardanta, he held senior management positions within other departments of ASR.
“Key elements of Collective Leadership for me are ‘being next to doing’, Co-creating by optimizing collective intelligence and joint competences’: I am convinced that in the end, this is the only sustainable way to achieve results”.
In his leisure time Guido loves to travel, and cycling and running are also favourite activities.
