Thierry Geerts is Country Director at Google Belgium.
He graduated as Solvay Business Engineer at Vrije Universiteit Brussel in 1989. During his studies, he already founded a student enterprise, within the framework of the Entrepreneurial Talent Corporation. After his studies, he started working as auditor for Coopers & Lybrand, but quite soon his passion for media, online marketing, and innovation led him to management and board positions at, among others, Corelio Publishing, Nostalgie, VAR, Clickx, and Passe-Partout. In 2008 he became CEO of Corelio Business Development and of Arkafund. Since 2011 he is Country Director of Google Belgium. As such he is positioned in the heart of online marketing and innovative entrepreneurship, two of the fields in which our faculty aims to excel on an international level. Interestingly, he still combines his job at Google with a board position at Kasteel Den Brandt, an offspring of his student venture.
