Marco Houwen

Before getting involved in the Blockchain and Virtual Currencies industry and becoming the Project Lead of Infrachain, I founded LuxCloud S.A. in 2010, a market leading provider of cloud service brokerage enablement. We globalized the business model, with offices in Palo Alto and Singapore. As the CEO, I was responsible for all aspects of the business, my major focus resided in the business development, the roll-out of the companies global strategy and the investor relationships.

Prior to that in 2000, I co-founded Datacenter Luxembourg S.A., recognized as Luxembourg’s leading independent internet and co-location provider. Datacenter Luxembourg was created to attract international e-commerce and internet companies to Luxembourg.
During these years I also co-founded EuroDNS, e-Brand Services and VoipGate. I took an active role in the strategic direction and business roll-out of these companies.

Together with the leading telecom actors in Luxembourg I successfully launched the cross-industry initiative LU-CIX (Luxembourg Commercial Internet Exchange) and have the honor to serve as Chairman of LU-CIX A.s.b.l. . As such I am contributing actively on the construction and promotion of the Luxembourgish internet eco-system.

I also actively support the efforts to enhance the spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation in Luxembourg.

Luxembourgish born and fluent in English, German and French, I have built an international profile by participating in numerous industry forums and advisory groups. With a background in Sales and Marketing, I am passionate about human excellence and contact and strive to get the best out of myself and others.
