Dr J.A. Schiltkamp

Even though his legal practice focused on the incorporation of Netherlands Antilles companies and all associated legal issues that arose in regard to their international trading and investment activities, the management and administration was outsourced to Corporate Trust and its affiliated company N.V. Macor, companies he formed and controlled.  Corporate Trust expanded in the late 1980s and early 1990s to other islands in the Caribbean such as the British Virgin Islands and the Cayman Islands.  In 1993 he was instrumental in facilitating the merger with between Corporate Trust N.V. and Amsterdamsch Trustee's Kantoor B.V. out of which ATC, in its current form, was born. 

After the merger, he could not serve as one of ATC's Supervisory Board members due to his age, so instead he served as counsel to the Supervisory Board for many years and made a very valuable contribution to ATC's development.  In addition to his very successful professional career, Dr. Schiltkamp took an active interest in Curaçao's community due to his love for the island.  He served first as Secretary and later as Chairman for the Curaçao foundation for the preservation of its historical buildings from 1956 to 1965.  Under his leadership, they focused on the preservation of the historic nucleus of Willemstad.  In the run-down neighbourhoods of the town, old dwellings were purchased, restored and rented out to the original inhabitants. The historic inner city became regarded as an asset for the economy of the island and has since become a Unesco World Heritage site.  In addition, Dr. Schiltkamp researched and published extensively in the area of colonial history and law, and was involved in the establishment of the law faculty of the Netherlands Antilles, which later became the University of the Netherlands Antilles with a broader curriculum.
 
He will be deeply missed by his wife Alida and his children Arrien and Maryleen, as well as all his former colleagues at ATC. Our thoughts are with his family during these difficult times.
