Originally from Canada, Krista moved to Belgium 5 years ago. She moved from Canada to Sweden in 2007 to study and ended up staying longer than expected. Following her studies she found a job and met her husband Stephan, who is originally from the Netherlands.

Krista’s job brought them to Belgium. she joined the Volvo Group in 2008 and has held various positions with the company both in Sweden and Belgium. She has been in her current position where she serves as the Director EU Communication & Sustainability Affairs since February 2016.

Krista and her husband live in Etterbeek. They have one daughter, Sloane, who is 2 years old.

Krista joined the BCT a few months after finding out she was pregnant, eager to get to know the ins and outs of having a child in Belgium. She served on the NNS Committee for two sales and took on the role of Vice-President in December 2016.

“The organisation and friends I have made along the way have had such a positive impact on my life and I could not think of a better organization to offer my time to. It is such a privilege to take on the role of BCT President and to be a part of building this strong community.”
