Graduated as electro-mechanical engineer at the university of Leuven, Kris started working in the automotive sector in 1993. He started as a Technical Consultancy Engineer in high-tech projects on NVH. Throughout his career, he acquired experience in Engineering Management and Technical Sales, promoted to Business Unit Manager and Managing Director within different industrial companies, and acquired worldwide experience in Europe, USA and Asia. Strongly convinced of the innovative power of the XenomatiX technology and the inevitable breakthrough of it, he joined this fast-growing high-tech company at the Research Park in Leuven, Belgium, as VP Sales & Business Development in 2016.
The XenomatiX story started in a garage in Leuven, Belgium, with 3 experts in optical metrology inventing and testing multi-beam lidar technology back in 2012. Since then, XenomatiX has expanded to a two-floor building and calibration lab in the Research Park of the city of Leuven in Belgium, famous for its KU Leuven University and many cutting-edge companies, like imec.
Today, the company counts over 40 employees in Belgium, Germany, US and China, as well as a solid distribution network through TOYO Corporations, JAT and Shanghai ZK. XenomatiX’ partnership with Tier 1 suppliers and automotive companies include, amongst others Marelli, AGC, Siemens, Imec, Septentrio and Cosworth.
