Finch Hatton has been established in 2006 by Pieter van Dijke. Pieter is best characterized as an unconventional man, born and grown up in the Netherlands, and doesn’t like a status quo but is fascinated by opportunities and possibilities. Mostly structured and sometimes even impatient he likes to visualise where the organisation and its people should be going in the long term and strives to capture that both efficiently and effectively. For this man concrete decisions are more important than just discussing matters. When required he can make hard decisions on an objective impersonal basis but always in an open and sociable manner.


His educational background starts with Mechanical Engineering at the Institute of Technology Vlissingen, The Netherlands followed by International Technological Development Studies at the University of Technology Eindhoven, The Netherlands. For his Masters thesis he arranges a research project in Tanzania for the national Energy Utility TANESCO and traverses this enormous country to look into the future possibilities for Mini Hydro Power Plants.

Professional Experience

Pieter's career starts with a succesful four years in production and project management for ALCOA, the Aluminium COoperation of America, up till 2001. In 2002 he starts working in the world of Renewable Energy as Business Developer for both Offshore and Onshore Wind Energy. Since 2006 he works as an independent Dutch Project Developer and Construction manager in an international network.
