Curriculum Vitae

Summary

I have worked since 1993 as an IT professional in the finance industry. I began as a consultant from my own company called Klabbers & Verstraeten. I conducted several roles: i.e. IT systems manager, developer/software engineer, project manager and architect. By performing these diverse roles, I developed a wide perspective on company and product needs, and learned to communicate effectively with people throughout a corporate infrastructure. I’m flexible when needed, but also very determined when the situation needs that. Teamwork is often essential and I easily fit in with different kinds of teams. I’m a self starter, I don’t wait until someone tells me to start an activity; I will start an activity when circumstances ask for it.

Having over 20 years of experience with developing IT systems, I reckon to be a valuable member of your team.
