Daley Contelaar


I am, since January 2024, a member of the Decisio team, a great next step after my three-month internship period. I graduated from the Vrije Universiteit (VU) Amsterdam with a bachelor’s degree in ‘Earth, Economy, and Sustainability’ and a master’s degree in ‘Spatial, Transport, and Environmental Economics’. During this master I specialized in urban and regional economics. My interest mainly lies in sustainability and area development issues because they are important for a livable and sustainable future. In my current role as a consultant at Decisio, I am able to apply and further explore these interests in practice. Additionally, this position allows me to engage with many other societal themes, making the work diverse and challenging. One of the most fulfilling aspects of my job is that I can truly make a contribution to society.

Besides work?

I was born and raised in Amsterdam, where I still live with great pleasure. In my free time, I am often found on the padel court or on the salsa dance floor several times a week. I also enjoy spending time with my friends, whether we’re together at a music festival, sitting in a cozy café, or playing board games. Traveling is another passion of mine. I love discovering distant places and experiencing new adventures, both alone and with friends.
