Alexander de Wit
My passion is simply to unleash human potential. Whether as an entrepreneur, an investor or an advisor, I like to support teams that create a memorable customer experience. Teams that stand out. Not only due to their products and services, not only because they keep innovating but because they are passionate and because they care. The team here is exactly that.
I spent the first ten years of my career as a management consultant. I left McKinsey & Co in 2001 to set up my first company, The Little Gym Europe: www.thelittlegym.eu. Since then several inspiring leaders have offered me the opportunity to invest and participate in their successful business in fields as diverse as sports, logistics, hydraulic technology, healthcare and real estate.
They all have three characteristics in common: a long-term vision, a passion for customer experience excellence and strong ethics. I have also assisted as an independent advisor CEOs and Boards in defining their purpose and strategic goals, and leveraging their human capital to achieve them.
I am a Dutch national and I live in Belgium, but if you asked my wife she’d say I spend most of my life in aeroplanes!
I enjoy learning and studied business at Solvay Brussels School of Economics & Management and INSEAD (MBA) as well as neuroscience (Institute of Neurocognitivism) and I am currently enjoying a three-year business owners program at Harvard Business School.
On a personal note, I am a happily married father of three fun children. I enjoy discovering the world as a family and seeing their reactions to new places and activities. I love both alpine and water skiing, managing my show jumping stable, as well as sharing my passion for music and interior design.

Creating a Flexible Entertainment Space
Private Home | Suffolk, UK
A client in Suffolk chose a movable floor for his swimming pool on the suggestion of the architect. This was not the first swimming pool the client had having previously installed one at another of his homes and this house did already have a pool but it needed renovating. The architect suggested they rebuild the whole pool to incorporate a movable floor and make the area into a flexible entertainment space.More Details
