Thomas Stinglhamber Business Developer

Thomas, like that other famous Belgian - Tintin, is an intrepid adventurer at heart. Having lived in the Congo during his youth, and doing 4x4 expeditions through the tropical jungles with his dad, Thomas decided in adulthood to also move to the wilds of Brazil for seven years. Our Business Development director is passionate about classic cars and can often be found racing through the European countryside on weekends, in his open topped Austin Healey.

BEST PART OF YOUR JOB: Spending hours in a hidden blind spotting animals in the Ardennes forests and shaking hands in a business cocktail the next hour

Wiet Proesmans Co-Manager & Travel Designer

Nĭ hăo! After growing up in the lush greenness of the countryside around Gooik, just outside of Brussels, Wiet is drawn to countries with strong culture, good humour and vibrant music. Equally at home sipping a dark Cuban rum (straight up!) with a good cigar, on an old house porch in Havana, as he is elbow to elbow with other diners enjoying a fiery Korean kimchi seafood soup, Wiet co-manages Brilliant Ideas with pride and passion… and can speak Mandarin!
