Contact Dirk

Dirk started his professional career in Banking & Finance. As a hands-on type of guy, he chose to get the basics right first and join the front-office teams. In the next years he created a full banking career covering all aspects of the métier: retail, business & corporate. Most recently, he was closely involved as a leader in the Private Bank integration of three parties involved. His major playing fields were IT integration (as business lead), sales integration (products & customer intimacy) but above all people/employee integration (human resources). This success story and major organizational changes moved Dirk towards a shift in his career. In 2016, he happily joined the Hudson-family where he tends to describe himself as talent navigator for interim managers & talent factory for clients. In his limited free time, he is a dedicated musician specializing in a capella 14th-17th century polyphony singing all over Europe.
