"I was born in Verviers (Belgium) in 1952. I am a Belgian, in blood and spirit. That means that I’m open minded, flexible and a convinced European. I spent my youth in Eupen, near the German border and still live in the same area. Proud husband and father of 3 daughters and 2 grandchildren, I never left my roots. My multilingualism (French, German, Dutch, English) and my faith in success has brought me very far. Now, I’m retired, and the time I have now, allows me to put and train creativity in my veins."
