Subsequently he started a career in the Royal Dutch Shell Group in human resources management. During his eleven years with Shell he had management positions in the Netherlands as well as in Africa, most of them focusing on management development.
After his Shell period, he became a partner in an executive search partnership, thus becoming an entrepreneur. He spent 17 years in this activity, first as (managing) partner at ATKearney Executive Search and later at an organization that is currently known as Maes & Lunau.
In January 2005 Frans established himself as executive coach and he has been involved with ABC since 2007. Besides coaching he works as an executive assessor, e.g. in cooperation with Jonathan Warner and has participated in several projects at boardroom level focusing on optimization of teamwork.
Furthermore, Frans works as country coordinator for PUM.
Frans was founding member of the VVD’s ‘Permanente Scouting Commissie’, the committee establishing the party’s list of candidates for the Dutch House of Representatives, the Senate and the European Parliament.
