Looking back on 2022, it proved to be an LQ year in which “energise for success” came to life in a truly nice way! A few examples we are particularly proud of:
This journey with LQ has truly been the most impactful I have experienced in my working career (19 years). Both personal and business wise, an experience with a golden edge!
Our leading lady Heidi Theys, current CEO and founding partner of LQ, has to fight cancer. A heavy setback for the entire team. Simultaneously, it deepens our commitment to organise for a strengthened LQ in the future. A beautiful article has been written on how she deals with this new reality, published in the Trends magazine.
In order to achieve our purpose, some organisational changes are needed. From now on, Anne Kloosterboer assumes the role of co-CEO with an external oriented portfolio, leading the company from a strategy, market, customer and ecosystem perspective. At her side, co-CEO Gunter Blanckaert takes up the role to professionalise the company and to continue delivering an A-customer experience as we grow, through an energetic and capable senior team, building on solid digitised processes and systems. With this co-CEO model, we believe we build on strenght, and that we can achieve scalable growth with sustained impact at high pace. Geert Letens, co-author of the Six Batteries of Change book, thought leader on change management and founding partner, continues his role as Head of Research & Thought Leadership. Heidi Theys ends her operational activities. She remains part of LQ’s Supervisory Board.
Together with our growing team of senior business transformation managers and architects, guided by a strengthened Management Team, we will keep on supporting you on your business transformation journey, even more energised than before.

The upcoming year promises nice things ahead!
