Jérôme Gillain


I grew up in Morocco and Belgium, where I pursued my undergraduate studies in Business Engineering at the University of Namur, with a focus on Sciences and Technologies. I then received my Master’s degree in 2020 from the Louvain School of Management, majoring in Innovation Management and International Finance.

Following my graduation, I started my professional career as a Business Developer in Houston, within the framework of the Explort program (AWEX), where I conducted a market study and represented Belgian companies seeking to expand their business to the US market. Afterwards, I worked as a Supply Chain Associate at Baobab Collection, where I refined my skills in supplier relations, planning, and inventory management.

Prior to joining Verlinvest, I was a Consultant for Intys Consulting, working on various logistics projects for Caterpillar transportation’s branch, where I gained valuable experience in process optimization, project management, and dealer relations.

Surprised and driven by my enthusiasm for data, I transitioned into my current role as data coordinator in Verlinvest. In this position, I leverage my expertise to support the investment team by gathering and synthesizing information. I take great pleasure in analysing complex models and creating clear, comprehensive dashboards that provide the team with a competitive edge in their respective fields.

I like to spend my free time discovering new cities, music or restaurants. The latter compensated by some occasional exercise, such as running in the woods or biking through the infamous hills of Belgium.
