Since the start of my career in a European industry association representing the life sciences industry, I have felt privileged to be able to combine my passion for science, politics and business in my work.
With a background in Media and Communication Science, I firmly believe in the power of telling a strong and genuine story, and for the need for stories to be told and transmitted across regions, sectors and communities. For close to 20 years I have been able to express these ideas as an Executive Search Consultant for the Lifesciences Industry.
As Partner at Borderless, I am dedicated to finding leaders for clients in the biotech, pharmaceuticals and medical devices sectors. I have a special interest in specialty care and orphan drugs, and have successfully placed leaders for clients across greater Europe, the US and Asia in general management, regional management, marketing and sales, R&D, clinical, regulatory, quality assurance, market access, supply chain and operational management roles.
I recently also co-founded and manage a media production company aiming for high-end, qualitative fiction with a distinct cross-community, cross- cultural, cross-linguistic element. In the earlier years of my career I also worked for a development consultancy firm, staffing development projects funded by international organisations such as the European Union, the World Bank and the African Development Bank.
A Belgian national, I fluently speak English, French and Dutch, have strong notions of Spanish and have had significant exposure to Swedish and Sign-language.
