In memory of Marc Van Gastel, Head of Invest

With great regret we say our goodbyes to Marc Van Gastel. On 30 March 2020, Marc passed away after suffering enduring heart problems. The entire FIT team loses a charming, talented and passionate colleague.

An inspiration to many

In 2011, Marc took on the role of Head of Invest. In that position, he acquired a great deal of knowledge and strengthened the FIT network far beyond the borders of Flanders. Generating leads, attracting investors and cooperating with different actors are just some of the activities at which Marc exceled. Many saw him as a true mentor. Even more, he was deeply appreciated as a lecturer at Vesalius College, VUB, AMS and Gledco.

Book of condolences

Under the current circumstances, with strict rules for social gatherings, his loved ones have chosen to say their goodbyes with a quiet remembrance held by family and close friends. There may not be a larger ceremony after the COVID-19 measures have expired.

Colleagues, friends and acquaintances that wish to express their condolences through FIT can send their heartfelt messages to:
