He obtained his doctoral degree at the Catholic University of Leuven and started his professional career as a founding director of the biotech start-up Tibotec, which led to what is currently J&J’s leading anti-infectives portfolio.

Talent wins games, high performing venture teams win championships
Today’s Industrial Revolution is characterized by a fusion of emerging technology breakthroughs happening at exponential speed. Building adaptable and high performing collaborative venture teams will be the most important challenge for future business leaders to cope with the exponential pace of transformation. Simultaneously, individuals will be shaping their own career paths by building a portfolio of specific projects, assignments and experiences. Understanding this impact of mobile human capital (talent), over access to financial capital, will drive value in Industry 4.0.
