Back in 1969 I started working for “Umicore” in Hoboken (Belgium) and moved to Brussels (in 1989) to join Umicore’s Group Communication Department and was appointed Manager Multimedia Services in 1999.
I retired in that function on December 31, 2015.
Communication rapidly grew more and more important during my career, turning my creativity skills into a key element in my professional life. At first it was by creating graphically outstanding business presentations for the marketing services, later by designing layouts for internal magazines, annual reports, ads, logos and finally intranets and websites. At the same time I delivered the necessary graphical communication support to the different business units worldwide.
As from 2005 photos as well as videos were considered as essential in business communication and was the reason for almost 10 years worldwide travelling.
