The Board of Directors of Belgapom has unanimously chosen to collaborate with Christophe Vermeulen as the successor to Romain Cools as the CEO of Belgapom. He will also act as the director of FVPhouse, the umbrella organization of the federations in the Belgian potato, fruit and vegetable wholesale trade and processing industry.
The position unexpectedly had to be filled when Tom Vandenkendelaere, with whom Belgapom and FVPHouse had previously reached an agreement, opted to succeed Kris Peeters in the European Parliament.
Marc Van Herreweghe, President of Belgapom: “It was no easy task for Belgapom to start a new search for a successor to our current acting CEO Romain Cools. We based our search on the same profile and are particularly happy with our choice of Christophe Vermeulen. Both his education and experience at national and international level form a sturdy foundation for assisting and representing the sector
