In 2006, he joined the AFM Europe group, which sells promotional fridges for major brands, as Sales Manager Europe.
His investment and his motivation allow him to evolve quickly and to be no longer in charge only of Europe but of the sales worldwide.
His job makes him a real globetrotter: United States, Russia, Australia, Italy, Spain, Greece ... he is always on the move.
In search of a new challenge, in 2010, he created his own high-end sportswear store with his sister and brother-in-law.
He is currently in charge of administrative and BtoB sales.
In 2013, Filip left AFM Europe to join Arass Hotel *** & Business Flats in Antwerp.
His sales qualities made him the ideal person to further develop the hotel and manage the new renovations.
He discovered then a real passion for the hotel industry.
What he likes most: the contact with his clients and the fact that each day is different from the previous one with new challenges. It is a world that moves and requires a lot of energy, it is a sector made for him.
In July 2016, the establishment is taken over by the group from Nice NEHÔ, Filip is then promoted to the position of General Manager.
Very involved, he wants to help NEHÔ to develop and acquire new establishments in Belgium.
That is why he decided to resume his studies, a master degree in real estate management, in order to acquire additional skills in finance and to be able to manage new projects.
Filip is a hyperactive, he needs to be always busy. In addition to the management of the hotel and his store, he is very involved in many associations: he is a board member of Antwerp hotel association, he organises events for the non-profit association Hope which is raising funds to develop the distractions offered to children in hospitals, he also organises an Oldtimer rally with his nephew once a year...
His hobbies (we wonder where he still finds time!): sport (golf, skiing and tennis) and dressage horses where he supports and helps his girlfriend who is a professional dressage rider and trainer.
