Co-founder and CEO in Sint-Martens-Latem, Ghent
Co-founder and CEO at Nomadesk, a European SaaS company, founded in 2004, focused on Enterprise File Sharing & Synchronization (EFSS) technology.
Chairman of the Board at Unifly, a software company that created the first, critically-acclaimed, cloud based Unmanned Traffic Management System, “Unifly UTMS”.
Bootstrapped Nomadesk and made it into a revenue generating SaaS-business, poised for growth. Raised over USD 10 million in venture capital (seed, series A and B). Nomadesk was selected by the Guidewire Group during Innovate! 2009 as "the most promising European startup". The company is a 2012/2014 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 finalist and a 2012 Red Herring Global Top 100 finalists. Nomadesk is venture-backed by Gimv and Nausicaa Ventures.
Like to believe I am "startup executive". A business and team builder with a predilection for disruptive innovation and startup business (SaaS, Utility or "Cloud" Computing).
Before founding Nomadesk, I held business development and marketing positions in telecoms and Internet start-up companies. I hold a BS and MS in Bioscience Engineering from Ghent University, and an MBA degree from Vlerick Business School.
I hold an EASA Private Pilot License SEPL and FAA Private Pilot Certificate ASEL.
