Soon, friends wanted him to invest their money, then friends of friends and thereafter, AD MELIORA was created to accommodate this natural growth. The company experienced such rapid growth that, in 2012, Jan and his family moved to Boston.

more about me

there's always something that makes us different!

Renaissance Man

Many people don't realize that Jan is an accomplished musician, performing professionally as both an orchestral conductor and violinist. Having begun playing the violin at the age of 4, he went on to get his bachelors and masters in Violin performance, and a masters in orchestral conducting. In 2002, he became chief conductor and artistic director of the Bruocsella Symphony Orchestra, with whom he toured China in 2011. In 2013, they performed in Paris.

Jan still plays the violin, serving as principle 2nd violinist of the Boston Civic Orchestra. As music is such a strong influence in his life, he sits on the board of the Boston Civic Orchestra, and serves on the leadership council of the BCB (Boston Conservatory at Berklee). As if that weren't enough, Jan is fluent in Dutch, French, and English and has a working grasp of German and Korean.
