Art De Maesschalck - newly appointed Partner Engagement Director

With great pleasure, we introduce Art De Maesschalck, our newly appointed Partner Engagement Director. With our high ambitions to expand our community of partner companies, Art’s role at LEAD Network will be dedicated to helping us with business development and fundraising.

Art is a native Belgian and lives in the green outskirts of Ghent. He has an extensive international and multi-cultural background and has worked for various global companies in business development, marketing management, and commercial team. His last assignment was with The Walt Disney Company at Disney Consumer Products, where he headed up the licensed business for Health & Beauty across EMEA, based out of London.

 Art is a strong believer and advocate of gender diversity. He personally experienced the advantages and added value of diverse teams and is strongly convinced that he can contribute to LEAD Network’s mission to help move the needle with many more CPG companies and retailers. Art holds a master of Oriental Philology from the University of Ghent and an MBA in Marketing Management from the Vlerick Business School. He is married to Kathleen, has 2 daughters, Charlotte and Olivia, and an adorable granddaughter called Lorelei.
