François de Vilder

François de Vilder joined the NABC team in March 2023. His role at NABC is on one hand supporting the Africa Insights Desk, conducting market entry research, and assisting the team during incoming and outgoing trade missions. On the other hand, he supports work for the Dutch Africa Poultry Platform. He provides support during communication/ outreach efforts and events/missions.

François is currently in his last year of European studies at the University of Applied Sciences in Maastricht. His studies helped him find his interests and that it’s important to work for something that you believe in.

His name is already a small indicator, François was born in France, and raised by Dutch parents. He is counting on getting the most out of his cultural sensitivity but most of all his linguistic skills during his time at NABC
