Van de Velde has announced that the company has named Karel Verlinde as the new Chief Financial Officer (CFO), effective from April 22, 2019.

Van de Velde is a publicly traded company that designs and manufactures luxury lingerie, headquartered in Belgium.

Karel Verlinde has extensive experience in finance with a strong controlling background and a keen interest in business operations.
