This paper describes my personal appreciation of some of Tini Veltman’s great research achievements and how my own research career has followed the pathways he opened. Among the topics where he has been the most influential have been the pursuit and study of the Higgs boson and the calculation of radiative corrections that enabled the masses of the top quark and the Higgs boson to be predicted ahead of their discoveries. The search for physics beyond the Standard Model may require a complementary approach, such as the search for non-renormalizable interactions via the Standard Model Effective Field Theory.
