Entrepreneur and president
Club Brugge & Broeklin
Bart Verhaeghe (1965) has West Flemish roots, but was born and raised in the northern outskirts of Brussels. After studying law at KU Leuven, he obtained a Master in Business Administration at the Vlerick Business School. Bart started his career at KPMG, but took the step towards entrepreneurship after just a few months. Under his management, Bouwondernemingen Verelst (Verelst Construction Companies) grew into the global project developer Eurinpro. The European market leader in office complexes and real estate logistics was sold to the Australian Macquarie Goodman in 2006.
Bart Verhaeghe founded a new real estate company, Uplace, in the same year. 2006 was also the year in which, together with some like-minded entrepreneurs, he set up Itinera, out of concern for the preservation of prosperity for future generations. He handed over the keys of the think-and-do tank to Marc De Vos and the current general director, Leo Neels.
Bart Verhaeghe is full of enthusiasm for entrepreneurship and football, two passions that he has been combining since 2011 as chairman and majority shareholder of Club Brugge. Following his objective of professionalizing Belgian football in general, he took up the position of vice-chairman in the KBVB (Royal Belgian Football Association) in 2016. Bart Verhaeghe, married and father of three children, also sits on the Board of Directors of the Vlerick Business School.
