I had the privilege to be educated in a bilingual system (Dutch and French) and due to my international experience I am fluent in English, German. I have good knowledge of Hungarian due to my presence in Hungary since 20 years.


Employment at CFE

 My recent responsibilities included the function of managing director of the construction companies of CFE Group (major Belgian construction group ( present in Hungary, Slovakia and Romania.

As the recent evolutions within the group are no longer matching my ambitions due to the fact that the activities are rather focusing on national rather than worldwide international activities. This is a result of  the recent change in ownership, that obviously decided to rethink the strategy on its central European and the International activities of the construction division of the Group, which I respect.
