I am a seasoned IT professional based in Erpe-Mere, Belgium. I'm usually known as the architect who quotes movies a lot.
My main focus is on helping organizations deliver value at speed, while avoiding high entropy. I strongly believe in agile, lean and evolutionary architecture. I help companies evolve the architecture practice through their digital transformation journey.
With almost 2 decades of experience in software development and architecture, I have worked on numerous projects of all sizes, as architect, team lead, or developer. I have developed a knack for guiding teams to excellence, delivering business value while keeping things clean and simple. I generally prefer a no-nonsense, pragmatic approach over high principles.
In my current assignment as Head of Solution Architecture at Thomas Cook Group, I'm leading the community of solution and application architects across Europe and chairing the group architecture governance board. As enterprise architect I'm responsible for the architecture of the digital channels, and driving an IT organization structure change, through an Inverse Conway Maneuver.
