Gilles Vanhouwe

I graduated with a master in civil engineering, but decided to start my career in strategy consulting at Bain & Company. I had the privilege of working across the five continents while at Bain, serving blue chip clients in CPG and Retail for nearly 10 years. Along the way, I got a taste of corporate life while working for Mars Pet Care as Trade Marketing Manager. In 2018, I reinvented myself as (growth) investor, after moving back to Brussels. I joined the Verlinvest team in the Summer of that year.

Today, I still leverage my experience in CPG and Retail, but also love venturing into new territory and bringing Verlinvest along (e.g. in eHealth, eGrocery, eBikes, eSports, …). The lines are blurring across industries, categories and countries, creating a ton of new opportunities for consumer-revolution investors like us. I keep an eye on whatever happens in BeNeLux, and look after portfolio companies Mutti and Liva Healthcare.
