Kristof Vanfleteren - CEO & Co-founder ION

Meet the founders

"We believe that truly iconic buildings are sustainable at heart."

During his studies, Kristof was already fascinated with construction and property development. In 2003, he obtained his degree in Civil Engineering and subsequently he broadened his knowledge and skills through the Master’s programme in General Management at Vlerick Business School.

After completing his studies, Kristof started his career as Business Development Manager at Eurinpro in 2003 - where he first worked with Davy Demuynck – and he then became Country Manager CEE at Goodman. In 2007 it was time for a change and Kristof joined Allfin as Development Director.

In 2011, given their like-minded vision on innovative property development, Kristof and Davy decided, with the support of Paul Thiers, to set up their own property development company in West Flanders. That is how ION was born. Today, Kristof is managing partner and CEO, and together with Davy, he focuses on building a successful future for ION and its projects.
