For more than 14 years, Kris has worked in M&A and corporate finance at both a national and international level. He commenced his career in 2005 as an M&A analyst at a Belgian corporate finance house, and then moved to the family office of two industrial families to work as an investment manager. As part of his full-time MBA course at Vlerick, Kris carried out several successful strategic consultancy assignments for a US mid-market buyout firm. Prior to founding DaVinci Corporate Finance, Kris worked as an independent M&A dealmaker.
Kris graduated in 2005 with honours (magna cum laude) as Master of Commercial Sciences at the former VLEKHO (now KUL) and he also has a Bachelor of Business Management.
His practical experiences on both buy- & sell-side advisory, combined with his academic background ensures that Kris has the necessary knowledge and expertise and is ideally placed to assist entrepreneurs in strategic and financial matters relating to M&A. Kris understands better than anyone the sensitivities and characteristics of a family business, as he himself comes from a family-owned business and he has, over the years, built up the necessary affinity with the Flemish (family) business world.
Kris has a relevant and wide network and is a member of several business and networking organisations, including Vlerick Alumni.
