Hi there. I am Senior Vice President – Group Security Director for the Solvay Group, a global chemical manufacturer. Previously I held international security roles in Supply Chain and Logistics and Critical Infrastructure. Prior to my 17 years in security management in the private industry, I was a career officer in the Belgian Military for 20 years (Infantry, Recon, LRRP), where I participated in several assignments with the United Nations and NATO during the Balkan Wars in the nineties.
My expertise covers a broad range of security expert areas, but I am mainly focussed on establishing and developing the security function in complex international business environments. I am an active member in several professional security associations, and hold a Master in Military Sciences from the Belgian Royal Military Academy, a certificate in Terrorism Studies from St Andrews University, as well as other professional security certifications across multiple domains of security.
