Sven Verstrepen was co-founder of the UA start-up/spin-off in 2008 that is still active. Afterwards he gained 12 years of experience as an independent entrepreneur and consultant in the logistics sector.
He has worked for large international clients in various sectors (FMCG, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, logistics and transport, maritime, hi-tech, industry, government…). His strengths as an entrepreneur are not those of a techie but rather those of a manager, business developer, project leader, salesman, networker, marketer, evangelist and “brand builder”.
