KATRIEN BUYS

Director Strategy, Innovation & Sustainability at Grupo Ageas Portugal

Katrien Buys was born and raised in Belgium, and a mathematician by education at the Catholic University of Leuven (KU Leuven Belgium). This degree led her to start in the insurance industry where she worked in the Belgian entity of the group during several years.
Triggered by a need of exploring the business world beyond its boundaries, a guiding principle that she keeps valid until today, she set off in 2012 to join the Italian operations and have her first international working experience. After a return to Belgium for 2 years, leading a strategic transformation program, she took the bigger opportunity of travelling and moving with her family to Portugal. 

Katrien bridges the gap between her work at Ageas Portugal and impact organizations, creating new business opportunities for positive societal impact. It stands out for being innovative and for always finding ways to cooperate in different areas, creating value both for these organizations and for Ageas Portugal. More importantly, she asks questions regularly, most often “why?” which is the most powerful question to keep you on track and ensure you don’t take anything for granted. Because she works in strategy, innovation and sustainability, she sees her role as bringing people together, having good conversations and co-creating a world of hope for as many people as possible. In the spirit of Ageas Portugal’s mission to deliver emotional and meaningful experiences in people’s lives, there is the vision that, with radical collaboration, we can be a welcome presence in every Portuguese household.

B FOR GOOD LEADERS DECLARATION

Our present economic system is flawed. It is guided by a short-term vision that only takes the interests of a limited number of stakeholders into account and is deaf to the call of future generations.

The annual B for Good Leaders Summit exists to accelerate the transition towards a regenerative economy creating the conditions for a shared, durable prosperity. This will create social, environmental, and economic net positive value through a new model of regenerative leadership.

As inhabitants of planet Earth, we take up this intergenerational call which demands to reframe the very meaning of leadership.

To enable this evolution, as B For Good Leaders, we commit to:

1. embrace radical interdependence, the fundamental principle governing life on Earth, as the golden rule for decision-making, leading to a regenerative impact;

2. consider at least the next generation of humans in every business decision;

3. measure what matters to integrate systemic value creation into our definition of profit;

4. challenge extractive economic models and take a stand for the common good;

5. mobilize finance as a catalyst to transform the business perspective from short-termism to long-term shared value creation.

We commit to guiding our companies and organizations to embrace a purpose-driven model that creates value for all.

Through this joint leadership statement, we lay the foundation for collective actions and alliances, clearing the path for a new regenerative economy.
