What I'm up to currently

I'm always doing a number of projects at any given time.

CIO / CTO for Dewaele Vastgoedgroep

I am currently working as CIO/CTO for Dewaele Vastgoedgroep, the largest Real Estate group in Belgium. Over the past couple of years I have helped grow the IT team with a heavy focus on software development. The development team of Dewaele Vastgoedgroep creates and maintains a number of software components. Our software helps real estate brokers to deliver top notch service each and every day.

It is my job to keep the team moving forward, take difficult technical decisions regarding our software architecture and cloud infrastructure. As a member of the board of directors I'm also responsible for guiding any strategical decisions where IT or Digital is involved.

CTO / Founder at Build8

A couple of months ago I launched Build8, a startup that is building a new set of Developer Tools to enhance DX (Developer Experience).


At any given time I'm doing a number of consulting jobs where I help guide companies with regards to Software Development, Cloud Architecture and Strategic IT decisions.
