From the very early stage, Gilles got involved in Minze, when Jiri and Josef were looking to add a more business-minded person to the team.
Gilles holds a Master’s Degree in Economic and Business Law from the University of Ghent. Highly interested in economics and entrepreneurship, he, later on, enrolled in Management, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship at Antwerp Management School. This is where he first met Jiri. Gilles’ early career started as legal analyst at Deminor, a corporate finance firm where he learned a lot about the legal and financial workings of a company.
At Minze, Gilles serves as Chief Commercial Officer (CCO), with as main responsibility the commercialization of Hospiflow and Homeflow. Organizing sales, setting up and maintaining relationships with distributors and looking for new business opportunities are daily practice. Besides that, Gilles is also involved in everything that is finance and day-to-day operations.
“Minze is a team of incredibly passionate and talented people”, says Gilles. “The diversity in backgrounds and the common goal of being at the forefront of innovation in urology we’re working towards, makes it a very enriching experience”.
When not at work, Gilles can very often be found outdoors doing sports. Sailing, skiing or just having a beer with friends are his favorite ways of spending his free time.
