A ‘magna cum laude’ graduate in Economics at UCL (Louvain-la-Neuve), Mr. Levaux began his career at the age of 22 at the head of a small struggling company in Liège, at the time employing some 100 people. Four years later the company was turned around, developed, and was merged with a large international group. He next obtained an MBA from the University of Chicago (1985) before going to work for McKinsey & Co, where he spent some 10 years, the last four as a partner, undertaking strategic and restructuring assignments throughout Europe. In 1995 he joined the Executive Committee of Belgian steel group Cockerill-Sambre as head of its non-steel subsidiaries, in particular CMI, a lossmaking company, where he was CEO. When he left CMI in February 2003, it was a debt-free, growing and profitable engineering and maintenance Group. In March 2003, Mr. Levaux became CEO of ABX Logistics, a multinational logistics group, operating in over 30 countries and headquartered in Belgium. It was a company which had suffered heavy losses since its creation in 1998. Since 2003, the results have been constantly improved to reach a level that is among the industry’s best. In October 2008, ABX Logistics merged with the Danish Group DSV, quoted in Copenhagen. From October 2008 until June 2016, Mr. Levaux has been Chairman and CEO of Aviapartner. In June 2016 he handed over his daily operational duties as CEO and remains Chairman of the Board. Headquartered in Brussels, Aviapartner is a leading player in ground-handling services for passengers in 38 European airports. Mr. Levaux is also a director of bpost, FN Herstal, Investsud, Interparking, Sogepa and Hamon.
