Summary

Graduated as a veterinarian in 2002 at Ghent University, I spend some time in practice before joining the FAVV (Federal Agency for the Safety of the Food Chain). Six months later I started working in human pharma (clinical research) for a couple of years. After that I traveled throughout Asia in a long planned sabbatical year with my girlfriend. Upon return I picked up veterinary medicines again and I am working as a Product & Technical Manager Companion Animals at Boehringer Ingelheim Belgium ever since (2009 - ongoing). In the beginning of my career I build up a variety of knowledge & skills that are in many ways still relevant for me today. Wearing a double hat (Product & Technical) in a fast growing company (consecutive launches, changing structures) is a continuous challenge. In the process I gained experience in marketing, sales, regulatory affairs, compliance issues & technical support. Being customer oriented, I always carry the client in my mind in all I do.
