Xanthippe Verbist


Xanthippe (°1991) graduated as a bachelor in applied work and orga- nizational psychology at the Thomas More college in Antwerp. Already during her studies she had a strong interest in the broad HR component and also followed courses such as employment law, business manage- ment, etc. However, it was mainly her strong conversation techniques and observation skills that stood out. Because of this, Xanthippe has chosen to specialize in recruitment. During her studies she already did various student jobs at selection offices. After her graduation, Xan- thippe started working in HR depart- ments with a focus on Soft HR, which she still works in today and prefers. In March 2017, she decided to go full-fledged for Chelona and became 100% self-employed. Today she takes on the daily management of Chelona.
