At KPMG, we inspire confidence and empower change in all we do. That’s why we’re proud to announce that KPMG in Belgium will sponsor indoor rowing world champion, Ward Lemmelijn on his road to the Olympic Games in Paris 2024. KPMG believes in encouraging young people to discover their own talent and potential, whatever their dreams may be.
Ward Lemmelijn is still young, but already a true jack-of-all-trades. He rose to fame as winner of the popular TV sports show ‘The ContainerCup’, but that didn’t showcase even half of his sporting talent! He played football in the top youth league in Netherlands until he was 18 and only began rowing when he started his third-level studies. Since then, Ward has quickly worked his way up through the ranks to become a European indoor rowing champion. His latest goal is to succeed on the open water as well, with an eye on winning the gold medal at the Paris Olympics in 2024.
Ward’s story is a big inspiration for all of us, which is why KPMG will support Ward in achieving this dream. We believe in encouraging young people to discover their own talent and potential, whatever their dreams may be. Ward is living proof that being passionate, striving for excellence, and having an open, innovative mindset can lead to great success.
KPMG understands and values hard work and passion, and just like Ward, we challenge ourselves to bring our absolute best to all that we do, every single day - for our clients, our people, and society at large.
