Veerle is responsible for the administrative side of the wholesale business. As Frederic’s partner she also supports and advises him on business decisions.
Variation, innovation and freedom
Since 2012 she has worked as an all-round administrative employee for Cheese Affineurs Van Tricht taking care of all the paper work as well as closely monitoring when an employee needs to have their annual physical. She also uses her creativity for the website and the newsletters.
Veerle likes the variety and the freedom of her job. She has a degree in Applied Economics so has no problems working with figures. You can’t pull the wool over her eyes. She also teaches business management and IT. Her people skills are enhanced by her contact with her pupils, and she applies these in her position at Cheese Affineurs Van Tricht. She only puts her feet up when all the work is done. In the long term Veerle hopes to work full-time in the cheese wholesale business as well as doing some prospection.
A fascinating culinary world
Naturally she came to love cheese because of Frederic. As Veerle learns more, her interest in cheese is also growing. It is a completely new world for her, in which she picks up a lot as she goes along, meeting fascinating people at the same time.
Veerle’s favorite cheese: Epoisses.
