Karel Baert, based in Brussels and Luxembourg, is active in Egon Zehnder’s Financial Services and Public and Social Sector practices. He works with multilateral and global companies on executive and board search, management appraisal, and leadership consulting. Karel has deep expertise in board advising, CEO and leadership succession planning, and executive assessment and development.

What makes me love this profession is to contribute to the development of leaders and organizations and help them navigate a world of uncertainty and volatility but also of fantastic opportunities.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Karel was Managing Director at Postbank and General Manager Retail with the Bpost Group. Previously, he held several management positions in corporate and retail banking with Deutsche Bank in Belgium and Germany. Karel began his career as an attorney with Loeff Claeys Verbeke, now Allen & Overy, in Brussels.

Karel has a Master in Law from the University of Leuven, Belgium, and has participated in the Foreign Lawyers Program of the German Academic Exchange Service in Tübingen, Düsseldorf, and München, Germany. Karel lives in Belgium with his wife, and together they have three children. Karel loves Italy, books, and golf.
