Marieke van Diepen

Creative Director

I’ve been working alone and with a multidisciplinary team to explore the subject of ‘feeling at home’ through my artwork for many years now. My vision of the product True Doors, then called Opplakdeuren (Stick-on-Doors), was born during my final project at art academy in 2007.

We founded True Doors in 2014 when, as a team, we realised the importance of focusing on improving the lives of people with dementia and other vulnerable people.

I am responsible for our collection, production and relationships in the Netherlands and Belgium.

Rahzeb Choudhury

Executive Director

I am the founder of Lifelong Inspiration, of which True Doors is an ongoing initiative. In 2014 we began working on what seemed to be a one off social project. One thing has led to another and now I find myself as a member of a growing international team and projects completed in fifteen countries and counting.

I take overall responsibility for our service, with a focus on growing our international presence.

There are two doors where I’ve most felt at home. The first is the front door of my parents house where I grew up in London and second is the front door where my children are growing up in Amsterdam.

Karl Vassallo

Operations Director

My focus is ensuring we run a highly efficient operation that's also great to work at and with.

In the last 10 years I've owned and run a slow cooking restaurant in my native Malta, as well as worked in numerous digital consultancy roles in the Netherlands and Switzerland.

Vinod Sudharshan

Technology Director

To grow we need technology that's scaleable, reliable and fun to use. That's where I come in. I was fortunate enough to be involved in community service for 7 years in my youth through Rotary International. Developing IT solutions is my passion and it's what I've been doing since 2010. I'm thrilled that through True Doors I can do what I do best, which is IT, while getting involved again in work that benefits society.
