Work experience

Sirris has been my home away from home for over 20 years. For a large part of that time, I was a senior project manager in the Materials Engineering department, where I was in charge of major projects looking to implement new technologies to process metals and I helped the corporate development team in developing our research portfolio in Europe.. Today I manage the ‘Product Solutions’ teams helping industry to identify new technological challenges, while I’m also quality manager.


  • Chemical Engineering at ULiège (1985)

Fun fact

By being the father of 4 (now grown) girls, I quickly learned the importance of putting myself in someone else's shoes to understand their needs or position.
