Inga Verbeeck has built a highly successful career as an active entrepreneur and business consultant across a wide range of industries in Europe. Over the past fifteen years Inga has been given the opportunity to build a global network of renowned entrepreneurs, creative minds and artists alike. With a financial education as a backbone she brings with her a arduous track record in strong commercial growth, coupled with a passion for results for her clients and a warmth of character that makes her perfectly suited to the elite matchmaking industry. Inga currently runs her own business consulting firm as well as her own global matchmaking services company.
Before venturing into the world of matchmaking – both on a business level as on a personal level – Inga found herself at the helm of a leading international steel trading company. There she developed through the ranks and became CEO at the age of only 29. It was in the steel industry that Inga developed the extensive financial, human resources and business skills that allowed her to subsequently establish Business Trees, a successful business consulting service based in Belgium. Inga’s commercial acumen together with a charismatic and fervent personality, have helped her to establish a formidable reputation as a young and dynamic entrepreneur, with a wide global network of contacts at the highest level of global business and across a wide variety of industries, from the entertainment world to the pharmaceutical industry.
After competing internationally at an early age in figure ice-skating, Inga developed her early career as a yachting journalist and photographer, allowing her to report from around the world and fuelling her passion for travel. An avid skier, diver and adventurer, Inga has a 9-year old son Ryan at the center of her existence as well as a love for animals and the outdoors to balance a fast-paced life and profession.

I appreciate an outspoken personality and respect individuality. I believe it is okay to be, to act and present yourself as you really are and feel. More importantly, such it is with all things in life. “Age quod agis.” ; or as E.E. Cummings said it : “It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”
During childhood sports were a driving factor. At the age of 6 I fell in love with figure skating, a passion that lead me to training and competing intensely for the next decade.
From early on I took on the role of an entrepreneur. From being the president of the student council to organising events and competing in the national Young Entrepreneur competition, I always initiated to be leading, active and learning.
I have a weakness for adventure, have an urge to travel frequently and I love to ski. Very few moments in life can compete with standing on a mountain top and taking a deep breath before gliding down that magical, crisp and snowy hill side.
While on holiday in South-Africa as an eighteen-year old exploring the quays of beautiful Cape Town lead me into a great adventure. I set out to travel the globe with contracts for coverage of the Whitbread Round the World (Yachting) Race. Experiencing different cultures and learning the ways of the world, I travelled for over a year as a freelance journalist before returning home to Antwerp. Writing and photographing has remained a part of my life and work ever since.
At the age of nineteen I commenced my work at the family business. My parents had founded their steel company in 1966 which was a unique learning and opportunity platform for which I will always be grateful. Whilst studying in evening school I learnt the tricks of the trade and developed an extensive understanding of business in the fast-paced and international environment where the family company was active.
I am proud to be a woman and honoured to be a mother – and without a doubt my son is the one thing that supersedes all. Now an avid golf player with big dreams at the age of 10 – he is my little hero.
Over a thirteen-year span at the family business I evolved from administration and logistics to finance, on to business development and project management to become the CFO in 2002. In 2008 the board appointed me as CEO to sail the company through its most difficult of years which resulted in a restructuring deal with a large US private investment firm. I have had the opportunity through the years to work with – and learn from - a great amount of top experts in a variety of fields, as well as build an extensive international business network.
During my career I have found one of my greatest gratifications to be to inspire others. Through being a corporate consultant and matchmaker I now set out to use my knowledge, expertise and experience – good and certainly bad - to the benefit of other professionals. With a holistic philosophy I strive to add value to the lives of my clients.
“Nosce te ipsum.”
Antes de quedar con Inga Verbeeck, fundadora de Ivy International, un servicio dematchmaking para VIPs, me puse a pensar en todos los métodos que había probado para buscar pareja y sexo. Me he dado de alta en todas las páginas de contactos que me permiten tener un perfil sin foto, para proteger mi intimidad, of course. Para compensarlo, siempre incluyo una descripción muy provocadora e irónica, con la esperanza de que alguien pille mi humor.
Una volta si definivano agenzie matrimoniali o per cuori solitari, oggi si adotta il termine inglese “match making”. Le nuove realtà in questo ambito per imporsi devono farsi strada tra le innumerevoli applicazioni per smartphone e siti per conoscere potenziali partner, affinando sempre di più i propri servizi e il target di riferimento.
Vijf jaar lang heeft Inga Verbeeck (36) in Parijs internationale klanten binnen gehaald voor het bemiddelingsbureau Berkeley International. In die tijd, is de omzet vertwaalfvoudigt, zegt ze. "We draaien rond de 10 miljoen euro." Maar nu is het genoeg geweest, vindt ze. Ze splitst zich af van Berkeley, keert terug naar Vlaanderen en begint voor zichzelf.
De Vlaamse die de rijken der aarde koppelt. Inga Verbeeck start na werk bij Berkeley International eigen datingbedrijf.
Ze boekt een miljoenenomzet, maar mag niets vertellen over haar klanten. De Vlaamse Inga Verbeeck bouwde de Europese tak van het datingbedrijf Berkeley International uit, en begint nu voor zichzelf.

Per questo ha redatto la classifica delle mete più romantiche.
Sarebbe come voler definire il luogo più bello, ma sappiamo bene che “non è bello ciò che è bello, è bello ciò che piace”. Lo stesso avviene a voler trovare il posto più romantico. Quali e quanti possono essere i criteri per definire il romanticismo di un posto?
Tutto questo premesso, è vero anche che ci sono dei luoghi nell’immaginario collettivo che sono davvero romantici, o per lo meno mete da sogno che potrebbero mettere d’accordo molte coppie!
