Harry Verwayen

Deputy Director

Harry is responsible for making sure that we meet our objectives as an organisation, and do that well. What he likea to do more than anything else though is to design and implement new business models that will change our way of thinking about heritage as an enabler of societal and economic growth. Quite taken lately by the developments of the sharing economy. A visual thinker, he needs a white board as much as a strong coffee. Mediocre football player, reasonable cook, aspiring photographer.
