As Global Product Manager Urban Climate Resilience I am responsible for rainwater management systems, with the blue-green infrastructure taking up most of my time. I have earned my stripes at Wavin by starting as a technical consultant. In this role I provided ideas for specifiers and policy makers to translate regulations into feasible systems. While responsible for Projects & Engineering Benelux, I was in charge of the design team in the Benelux. By capturing every raindrop and directing it to the point of use, we have brought many smart solutions to the market. Since 2 years, I use all this knowledge to support the markets around the world implementing the solutions of tomorrow. I have the Belgian nationality and have been educated as a land surveyor and I am 53 years old.
