    Gilles Vanhouwe

    Investment Director
    Verlinvest

    Gilles graduated with a masters degree in civil engineering, but decided to start his career in strategy consulting at Bain & Company. He worked across all five continents while at Bain, serving blue chip clients in CPG and Retail for nearly 10 years. Along the way, he got a taste of corporate life while working for Mars Pet Care as Trade Marketing Manager. In 2018, Gilles reinvented himself as a (growth) investor after moving back to Brussels, joining the Verlinvest team in the Summer of that year.

    Today, he still leverages his experience in CPG and Retail, but also loves venturing into new territory and bringing Verlinvest along (e.g. in eHealth, eGrocery, eBikes, eSports and pets…). He keeps a close eye on what happens in BeNeLux and look after portfolio companies Mutti, Liva Healthcare, Everli and Tom & Co.
