This is Jan Six, when he was thirty-six years old. He was a man of the world who owned a large thriving business and he even became the Mayor of Amsterdam later on. Jan Six collected works of art, which is how he met Rembrandt. When Rembrandt needed money to pay off debts later on in his life, it was Jan Six who lent him the money.
