The Marlinks team

We are a driven team dedicated to play its best part in the renewable energy revolution.

Roel Vanthillo

Founder & CEO

“I want to enable engineers to always know what’s going on inside and outside their cables at all times and to build a tool that would do just that.”

Liesbeth De Baere

Sales Manager

“My role at Marlinks is to ignite the conversation and make sure we always bring the best value with customer-centricity and integrity being the main drivers.”

Iris Jiang

Business Developer
East Asia

“I am interested in getting into dialogue with different types of subsea cable stakeholders on their current and future subsea cable challenges and as well look for solutions together.”

Andrew Lloyd

Business Developer

“I have over 20 years’ experience working in the subsea cable industry ranging for engineering, project management through to leading installation and maintenance teams across the globe.”

Simon De Rijcke

Project Lead

“I have gained substantial experience in the electrical design of turbines, farms, and grids including writing multiple academic articles in journals and conference proceedings and holding several patents.”

Sander Van de Moortel

IT Engineer

“I take care of the (front-end and back-end) development and deployment of the web applications while occasionally putting my linguistic and copy-writing skills at the disposal of the team.”

Carlos Arboleda

Data Scientist

“Passionate about sediment transport, computational fluid mechanics and science in general, this team player aims to increase his scientific knowledge on the physical processes involved in cable safety. When not in front of a computer, he is not the one to say no to a social gatherings. Enjoys indoor as much as outdoors activities such as a good movie in the cinema or long hike with friends.”

Ruth Vandeputte

“I’m curious about programming and new technologies. Team spirit, brainstorming and meeting people give me energy. Passionated about water, I love to go swimming, diving or kayaking after office hours. Recently, I have also regained the pleasure of being on a theatre stage.”

Marlies Debuck

Office Manager

“I enjoy supporting my colleagues on a day-to-day basis and I like to make sure everything at the office runs smoothly. Outside office hours I love upcycling, traveling and all things Asian.”

Jelle Desmet

Marketing Manager

“I am responsible for the wide world of marketing within Marlinks. Bringing our solutions to the right people in the market is what gives me energy.”

Ward Quaghebeur

Project Engineer

I am responsible for the successful delivery of various Marlinks projects, working on both the practical and technical implementation, and everything in between. Besides work, I enjoy tinkering, exploring new avenues, and making cool stuff.
