Bart Briers

Director Services & Solutions

Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love you! Tomorrow, you're always a day away...

Bart Briers Bart is former project and program manager for multiple services in ditto customer environments. Currently Director Services & Solutions and project sponsor for all CTG projects. Next to his CTG responsibilities, he is also appointed EMS professorship for teaching 2 classes in Project Management at the EHSAL Management School in Brussels. Teaching Project Management is his passion for more than 10 years now... and counting

Passing on his Project Management experience through a gamified case study is more than just part of his job. Actually it’s not part of his job anymore. But as a Director Services & Solutions, Bart finds it of the highest importance and therefore he is always more than willing to set aside all operational responsibilities to train the best Project Managers for customer projects. Because it’s so important .. and, honestly, so much fun too.

Hans Vernimme

Competence Developer

Be yourself; everyone else is already taken

Hans Vernimme After several career moves, Hans Vernimme finally found his passion when taking the role as Competence Developer at CTG. In this role, Hans developed his people focus by following several courses but as much by learning by experience.

Help others to move towards their development and to find their passion, that’s what drives him. As certified MBTI Instructor he does this by coaching one-on-one and by giving soft skills training.

Michael Pilaeten

As a test consultant and coach, he aims at finding a balance between providing a structured learning environment and sharing knowledge and best practices.
