The Robert Half BEL20 CEO Tracker

See how the BEL20 CEOs got to where they are today

How have the career paths changed to becoming one of Belgian’s top bosses? Is having a financial background the key to success, or is a technology background the way of the future?

The BEL20 CEO Tracker slideshare highlights the key findings from the annual Robert Half BEL20 CEO Tracker including the career paths, educational background, age and nationality of the BEL20 CEOs.

Key findings include:

  • 23% of CEOs attended Catholic University of Louvain
  • There is only 1 female CEO
  • The average CEO is 55 years old.

For a snapshot of the results view the slideshare above. Alternatively, we have offered a more in-depth analysis in our BEL20 CEO tracker press release.

“Today’s CEOs require a changing blend of skills and experience to successfully lead their businesses into the future, with backgrounds in technology and finance equipping an increasing number with the ability to do so. This is a trend that is increasingly becoming a focus for executive and senior leadership hires within a business as well – especially when coupled with invaluable softer skills such as communication, adaptability and resilience."

– Philip Hendrickx, Managing Director, Robert Half Executive Search
