Program Manager Digital Services

As Program Manager Digital Services, I explore digital solutions that can help you make the difference in creating business value. I guide teams, portfolios, and activities with services like advisory and coaching, knowledge transfer and innovation. My expertise lies in domains such as Business & Service Design Thinking, tech stack (technology choices on architecture, data organization, data innovation, security & trust…) and scaling digital products and organizations. I’d love to hear your challenges and guide our team to come up with a framework or relevant advice to make the right decisions.

Before I joined Sirris, I was active for 20 years as a co-entrepreneur in a Belgian manufacturing company that has turned innovation and internationalisation into its core programme for successful growth.

Fun fact  

Creativity also reigns in my multicultural kitchen. I’m still testing the agility method vs. the “recipe only” model.
