Project Focus on Safe Environment

Hello there! Nice to see you on this platform. With 25+ years of experience in CRM and digital marketing, I try to help companies build and maintain meaningful customer relationships. I have served several industries including Automotive, Energy, Luxury Goods, Finance, Media and (last but not least 😊) Retail. This experience helps me in my job at MMD (Media Marketing Delhaize) to develop and monetize tools that are interesting both for the consumer and Delhaize. I joined the FAN board, because I believe in the networking and positive exchange of experiences with like-minded people and I think it’s just a great way to get in touch with my colleagues to discuss the challenges we (sometimes) face in mixing our professional career and private life.

Communication & Engagement

Hi FAN'ers! I've always been passionate about products and always loved doing my groceries! Passion became part of my job when I joined Delhaize in 2016, the day of the alliance between Ahold & Delhaize. After 3 years in the Business Performance Team I moved to the buying department as Category Manager of Non-Alcoholics' Drinks. I have now the pleasure to be responsible of Home & Beauty Care Filière. I strongly believe FAN could bring more FUN & inspire everyone, while showing that investing in Gender Equality is not only a "hype" but pays off :) Hope to meet you all in all our Events!

Supporting women in their development, both personally and professionally and to ensure gender equity is respected at every level in a company is very close to my heart.

Nice to meet you. I’m delighted to be part of FAN. I realize the responsibility I must contribute to an environment where everyone feels heard, valued, and respected regardless of gender, background, or beliefs. I’m determined to promote a culture of diversity and inclusion. 20+ years ago I started my career within Delhaize as Store Manager with a great passion for food. After a journey in various functions, I’m currently Director Quality Operations. Assuring our customers can enjoy their groceries. I am looking forward to meeting you all and change ideas!

Hey FAN members! working already 11 years at Delhaize, i had the opportunity to work in several teams. From business performance management to store manager and sourcing, I'm now in charge of national brand sourcing for Grocery Sweet. Besides all this, I'm the proud father of 3 charming girls, who are growing-up way too fast ! If today they are still at primary school, and everything is quite under control, there will come a day when they will jump into their professional career. And it would be awsome if all the topics that we discuss today in FAN become totally obsolete by then. I'm also the happy husband of Camille. Like many of us we both wish to find fulfilment in our professional life, and we have to take all these challenges together and find our right balance in this. I'm convinced that FAN can be a great exchange platform in this journey.

Hello everyone! I am thrilled to embark on this exciting journey within the vibrant Female Alliance Network. My professional journey has traversed diverse sectors, from FMCG and consultancy to banking, but it's in the realm of food retail that I've discovered my greatest passion. The pursuit of helping a company build a sustainable competitive advantage through an inspiring people strategy is my ultimate goal. In my current role, I have the privilege of working with a team of passionate lions as we collectively strive to make a positive impact on Delhaize's ability to attract, develop, and engage talent. Our focus extends beyond individuals to the holistic development of teams and the entire organization, encompassing elements such as leadership and culture. I firmly believe in the power of networking and the exchange of experiences. That's why I've enthusiastically joined FAN, recognizing it as a fantastic platform for discussing the challenges we sometimes encounter in balancing the priorities of our professional careers and private lives.

Here's how I would describe myself in one sentence: "a positive minded food enthusiast hoping to drive change!" As marketeer and young woman, I strongly believe that FAN can make the difference, starting by creating awareness and being a safe environment for both women & men within Delhaize! I've always been passionate and a people-person so my wish is to exchange as much as possible with all FAN members about the daily struggles we experience throughout our leadership journey but also, and especially, focus on the positive and celebrate together all wins, small & big!

Yes, I'm a man. I'm Sylvin. I'm at Delhaize for more than 13 years in the IT Marketing even if I only joined Delhaize as an internal 3 years ago. I was the reference for all aspect of the project to setup the SuperPlus card back then in 2020. I'm still working on SuperPlus of course but also on the majority of the initiatives which concerns IT Marketing including promotions. I'm a father of the 2 most beautiful children in the world, I really love spending time with them. I prefer using the bike than the car to move around even with my 2 kids or my wife thanks to a longtail we have bought. Happy to join the FAN to help on the parenting at Delhaize, share my experience and try to improve things as far as we can.
