A DAY IN THE LIFE OF BREGT VERLEDEN

I joined TOMRA Food as a Business Development Specialist in May 2017. From the market research at the beginning of a new project, until the development of marketing deliverables at the end, it is very exciting to introduce a new food sorting application to the TOMRA Food family. In my spare time, I enjoy travelling the world, discovering new cultures.

DAY IN THE LIFE OF CHRIS MONTALVO

I started out as a bus driver, delivering children to and from school, although I knew I would soon want to spread my wings career-wise. So, I went back to school and studied industrial maintenance and automated technology. After acquiring my degree and relocating from New York to Fresno, I started working in the food industry sector.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF MARIJKE BELLEMANS

I'm passionate and curious by nature. My curiosity led me to become a journalist and from there a senior marketing communication coordinator.

I was born in Madrid, I have 2 brothers (Belen & Pablo) and my parents are called Santiago and Maria Luz. I went to Aguistiniano College in Madrid and then to University where I studied Agricultural Engineering. I’ve been part of the ‘Scouts’ for 12 years where I have learned values and how to be a positive person. I love the sea and I have a degree of recreational boats skipper. I have a fantastic girlfriend called Leticia who is a teacher to 3 year olds. I worked at the company called GEA for 10 years before starting at TOMRA. When I have a spare moment, I love to go fishing, pilot my drone and make trips away with my friends from college or my girlfriend, to wherever possible. Most people don’t know but I was a DJ in my late teens/early twenties, playing in different clubs in Madrid and I have a musical school background as well. At home I have a DJ set where I regularly spend some time.
