JCI Limburg has awarded Ridley founder Jochin Aerts the title of "Young Entrepreneur of the Year.
Voted for by the organisation’s network of young businessmen and women, the CEO of the manufacturer confessed: "I did not expect it, but secretly hoped for it and, for me, this is a confirmation that we are on the right track. This trophy is obviously a reward for all our employees."
Aerts picked up the trophy at JCI Limburg’s gala evening held in Hasselt, Belgium. Aerts was chosen from a panel of three other candidates: Robin Bruninx (Encon), the brothers George and Rubin Peumans (ASAP) and Bart Van De Sompel (Trius).
