True value is released when we dare to transform.
At upquest, we think of transformation as a combination of levers, with any of these that can independently be activated from oneanother according to the complexity of the project.
Besides managing these change levers, we believe that strong project management skills are essential to successful in-depth transformation. We have a number of large-scale cross-border transformations under our belt both as in-house and external experts, and are comfortable with complex environments.
We make the difference by keeping a down-to-earth approach in everything we’re doing.
We believe in your company’s potential.
We want to understand who you are, to accompany you in your transformation and to help you go further in your uniqueness. We reveal your value.
At upquest, we believe in the power of a team! We are convinced that acting collectively and leveraging in individual team members differences is far more effective than acting alone. We team up with you and your teams to build lasting, value-creating results.
To form the best possible team, we offer the services of our permanent staff as well as those of our large network of skilled freelance contributors. We pay the utmost attention to teamwork and make sure that all our advisors adhere to the strong values of our corporate culture.

I have a unique experience as program manager of large scale, strategic digital programs within the Belgian banking sector. I’m at ease to oversee a broad portfolio of projects in all its aspects by combining very strong methodological skills with an excellent hands-on approach. In short, delivery is in my DNA.
My passion for technology drove me in recent years towards senior roles in the field of digital transformation and innovation.
As an avid sport passionate, I regularly ride the steep mountain climbs of the Tour de France on my bicycle and, during the winter, you’ll find me enjoying alpine and backcountry skiing. I also find great inspiration in regular family-trips around the world. Friends are equally important for my work-life balance and I never miss a wine-tasting session or good restaurant with them.

When I am not spending precious time with my wife and three children, and travelling back to France or Ireland to visit our family, I take great pleasure from outdoor trail running and hiking. Just enough sport and marathon so that I can also very much enjoy good food and wine in good company!

After 20 years spent in IT & Business transformation on 4 out of the 5 continents, I have observed that Change will not happen by motto hanging on the wall of your company. Change can only progressively percolate through your organization when you mightily shake ideas and action in a well prepared mutation-friendly environment. Managing with agile mind-set will immensely speed it up but it is not enough. To be attuned with the challenge of the 21st century, transformation must reconcile business competitiveness and value created for the community.
