Nowadays active as an area manager, chief communications officer and senior fire chief for the City of Antwerp Fire Service, I started my career as a voluntary fire fighter and EMT. I have more than 14 years of hands on experience in emergency and crisis management. During my career I have evolved from a narrow focus on firefighting to a broad multidisciplinary approach to crisis and emergency management. I constantly try to be innovative in this field (eg. Social Media, Information Management, Crisis Intelligence, ... ).
But daily live isn't only about crisismanagement. As area manager I have the opportunity to manage several fire stations and approximately 250 professional firefighters and I'm a member of the Board of Directors of the fire service. As chief communications officer I lead a small innovative team of communication professionals which is among the most advanced and forward in its kind.
I'm also an active volunteer in different organizations that are active in crisis- and disaster management: Stand by Task Force, Critical Interactive Processes-institute and Disaster Resilience Lab.
Specialties: Leadership, coaching, information management, crisis & disaster intelligence, emergency and critical incident management, crisismanagement, safety on mass events, PR & communication, social media. I'm available for training or advice in these domains.
