The Ecofin club was created in early 2014 by Didier Roelands, the manager of Flexi-Time, in cooperation with Marc Lambrechts, a financial and business journalist withL’Echo. As its name indicates, the club focuses on business and financial issues.
In September, two new sections were launched, the Ecofin Women Club, which focuses on women's issues but which is also open to men, and the Ecofin Immo Club, which focuses on real estate.
The Ecofin Women Club is headed by Anne Tilleux, an associate partner with NautaDutilh.
The purpose of the Ecofin Women Club is threefold:
to put women in the spotlight in order to emphasise their achievements (business woman, writer, CEO, etc.), focusing on the economic and/or financial aspects associated with these achievements;
to discuss issues related to gender diversity and diversity in general;
to provide a meeting place for both men and women active in business and financial circles who wish to connect with others who share their interest in these issues.
The Ecofin Women Club will hold six discussion meetings per year. The discussions will be led by Martine Maelschalck, the editor-in-chief of L’Echo. The first meeting of the Ecofin Women Club, a special "Ring the Bell" breakfast, will be held on Tuesday, 14 October at 8:30 at the Brussels Stock Exchange. Dominique Leroy, managing director of Belgacom, will be the guest of honour on this occasion and will ring the opening bell to signal the start of trading. Click here to register.
