About

Growth & ambitious

I’m a 32 year old IT professional living in Hasselt, Belgium. I have been working in the IT industry for over 10 years now, and I have always been passionate about computers and technology.

I have been described as having a great combination of management and technical skills, allowing myself to go deep into technical issues while not losing focus on the bigger picture. Juggling between priorities while having limited resources has become second nature.

Splendid communication towards the customer and strong presentation skills. Handling difficult last-minute changes smoothly and arranging them on short-term, while keeping end goals in mind.

I take initiative to raise technical or organisational problems with my team(s), colleagues and the management team. I have a strong drive in setting up and following up process improvements. Strongly motivated to improve things.

All in all, I have a positive impact on the work atmosphere. I believe a healthy balance of personal needs and work objectives produce the best results.
