After gaining some initial work experience at Petrofina, I started on my career path in 1993 as a chemical field engineer with Industrial Risk Insurers (IRI). I subsequently joined the XL GAPS team where I have held various roles ranging from field engineering to account engineering both for underwriters and also directly for clients.

In 2010 I was appointed Risk Engineering Leader for the company's EMEA region and currently manage a team of 12 account engineers at various locations across the territory.

I received my Master's in Chemical Engineering from the Free University of Brussels (VUB), Belgium in 1991 and, in 2001, obtained an additional Master's degree in Safety, Health and Environment from the same university.
