The Duke Alumni Association and the Fuqua Global Executive MBA class of 2012 invite you to join us on Monday 5th September 2011. Meet the newest batch of Dukies, hear from one of Europes most impressive CEOs, and have some drinks!
Christian van Thillo received his MBA from Fuqua in 1989. In 1990 he became managing director, and later CEO, of a medium-sized, family-owned publishing company. The company owned two Belgian dailies and a couple of magazines, but it was in bad financial condition and the performance of its titles was weak. By 2011 the company had changed its name to De Persgroep, and had grown from a local publishing company with revenues of $80 million to a multi-media corporation with revenues of $1.4 billion, with a healthy profitability and a strong balance sheet. De Persgroep is now the largest media-company in the Benelux with leading newspapers, magazines, websites, TV and radio stations in Belgium and The Netherlands.
