The Power List 2021
CEO and Co-owner at RIC group, Kortrijk, Belgium; Visiting Professor at Ghent University, Belgium
In another life… In hindsight, I could have chosen another job. I could have decided to pursue my childhood dream and become a pilot. I could have decided to become a professional soccer player like my cousin – if I had been talented enough. I could have decided to stick with my band members and tour the world and play the biggest rock festivals on this planet. No, instead I decided to become a scientist, I decided to step in the footsteps of my scientific father, I decided to marry a scientist, I decided to devote my life to science – life science. And to this day, I’ve not regretted a single moment.
