Employee in the spotlight

Sébastien Van der Stappen,
Shop Employee - Brico

Listen to the customer

‘For our profession the customer is the right to existence. Without customers there is no trade and of course no pay!’ says Sébastien Van der Stappen. He has worked at Brico for thirteen years. His career started in a franchise store of Brico in Namur region, then in 2008 as a sales consultant at Brico Jambes ended. He tells us about his work. 

‘When I started I was quite shy but thanks to this job, I have gained self-confidence and I learned to be open to other people. Everyone who works with us must be happy to provide service and happy to give advice. To me this is a major aspect of our work. By listening carefully to customers, we are better able to satisfy them by offering the appropriate product or the appropriate solution.

I need a job that is varied and keeps me in motion. To me it is ideal to occasionally change department so I can learn new things and discover new assortments. At Brico I get the opportunity to do so. Through my work, I have won a lot of self confidence over the years. Brico is a professional company with good working conditions and furthermore the atmosphere is always good!’

Looking for an additional job

Carolien Vergouwe,
Business Development Analyst - Praxis

I have learned about retail

"I love making progress and that's exactly what Praxis does as a retailer. The most visible examples are the new ranges, introduction of new own brands and better navigation in store and on the store shelf. Even more takes place behind the scenes, in the field of logistics and automation for example. Being a Decoration Category Manager, I work on range strategies with a focus on major themes like our new own brands and style groups.

To convert new ideas into a product in store I work closely with the buyers  and therefore I am involved in making choices for new ranges. Also, I often work with our Belgian colleagues from the other formulas within Maxeda DIY Group. After a successful project nothing is more fun than noticing clients and colleagues respond positively. Working at Praxis has done me a lot of good in various areas. 


I have learned about retail – from the group strategy of Maxeda DIY Group to the daily operation in stores. The colleagues are also very diverse, with many different personalities and qualities, to me together they form a nice mix of people to work with. Everyone wants to make progress, there is a positive atmosphere and strong commitment. The coming years I want to become an all-rounder in the field of Category Management. The step after that would be more specialised in a particular field. Maxeda DIY Group offers those opportunities well."
