Luc De Vos joins Global Graphics

Global Graphics has appointed Luc De Vos as an independent, non-executive director

Global Graphics has appointed Luc De Vos as an independent, non-executive director with effect from February 15, 2021.

An engineer by training, De Vos is credited with championing the early implementations of the internet in Europe in the early 1990s and was the EUnet International group's founding father, the first commercial internet service provider (ISP) in Belgium, and the first sizeable pan-European ISP. He was a key player in the creation, development, and internationalization of businesses that became household names, from KPNQwest, Stepstone, and Starlab, to, more recently, CarsOnTheWeb (now ADESA Europe).

Over the years, he has also been a non-executive director to global leasing and fleet management company Sofico, and advisor to unified threat management security provider AxaGuard and AI-powered mobile mapping start-up Geckomatics, and has invested in a diverse portfolio of mainly information and communication technology companies.  In all, he has worked with more than 60 companies with a strong focus on growth and corporate governance.

Guido Van der Schueren, chairman of Global Graphics, commented: ‘Luc has more than thirty years’ experience of working with technology companies either as a founder, director, investor, or advisor. He brings a depth of knowledge to the board that will contribute to our next phase of growth as we work to increase value for all shareholders. We appreciate his willingness to join the board of directors of Global Graphics and look forward to working closely with him.’
