Alkmaar– Today Aunexum Precious Metal Group announces that Paul Buitink will start as Managing Director on 1 August. This puts Paul in charge of the day-to-day management of the group. Paul has also acquired an interest in Aunexum.

“After years of construction, Aunexum has entered the next phase and I have decided to take a step back”, says the current Managing Director Vincent Kersten. Vincent will remain involved in important initiatives as founder and shareholder in the (new) role of Executive Director. Under his leadership, Aunexum has developed into the largest precious metals company in the Netherlands over the past 7 years.

Fulfilling his passion

Paul Buitink is a familiar face in the world of gold and financial alternatives. He regularly contributes in the media such as BNR Cryptocast and on his own Twitter and YouTube channel ‘Reinvent Money’. He was also one of the initiators of the deposit bank, a full reserve bank. Paul gained (international) experience in precious metals at Goldmoney and worked as a Senior Commercial Manager at Atradius. Due to his extensive knowledge and network, Paul can contribute to the visibility and further growth of Aunexum. At Aunexum he combines his leadership qualities with his passion.


Attracting Paul Buitink is in line with Aunexum’s grand ambitions. Founder Vincent Kersten “We have grown rapidly in recent years and expect to continue to develop significantly in the coming years. We know that Paul is the right person to lead at this stage.”

Paul Buitink: “I’ve already had the opportunity to meet the fantastic people who work every day to offer customers the best service. I am therefore excited to realize the ambitions together with the team in the coming years.”

Growth potential

The precious metal chain is changing rapidly. The increasing attention to the theme of sustainability is leading to an increasing demand for the applications in which precious metal is recovered from waste flows. And on the other hand, there is an increase in private demand for precious metals as protection against currency depreciation and international financial instability.
