Jeroen Deleu

Director Strategy & Corporate Development

I love to help people realizing their dreams and aspirations. In my role at Sirris, I focus on innovation and the strategic renewal of companies, the development of organizations and the practical impact on business and people. As a business researcher, I focus on the strategic flexibility of firms and the link with their organizational legitimacy.

If you struggle with a wicked organizational problem or an ambiguous strategic issue, or you simply want to discuss an idea that might be interesting, I will gladly explore possible scenarios towards a positive next step with you.

Work experience

As a physicist, I started at IMEC in a researcher's role. Various internships abroad let me evolve towards a senior project leader building bridges between research and industry. At Sirris, I have worked in various roles and functions with a broad range of activities, such as helping companies with their (technology) strategy and organizing R&D portfolios. I am currently member of the general management of Sirris.

Professional motto

“Strategic greatness thus does not come from heroic individuals, grand visions, and imaginative leaps but, rather, from the strategist’s attention to the mundane, the trivial.” – Richard Whittington, 2018

Fun fact

But let's not be too serious. I'm actually a musician and a qualified cook 😊.
