Board of Directors / Trustee Members
Bernhard “Bery” Glaser (Email), LPT, Medical Practitioner, MBA, Co-Founder of Bery’s Place
Bery, 69, is the German/Belgian initiator is a retired health professional, executive manager and namesake of Bery’s Place. However, he’s also a dreamer with a big heart. He has a pragmatic, can-do attitude, is committed and creates facts. Bery is able to achieve were others fail. He surrounded himself with other equally committed humanitarians and just started to work. They struggled, but they overcame hurdles, taboos, cultural and traditional shortcomings.
However as no man is an island, he relies heavily on his “Better Half”:
Ingrid Dilen (E-mail), Human Resource Manager, MBA, Psychologist, Randstad NV, Treasurer and Co-Founder of Bery’s Place
Ingrid Dilen, has been his loving and equally committed partner for over 38 years and counting. She functions here as the very dependable treasurer and administrator. In order to help finance all Bery’s Place does, Ingrid works hard in Belgium, and visits frequently.
Place Bisschopslaan 27, bus 1
2340- Beerse, Belgium
Ingrid and Bery not only consider these girls their responsibility, but take them in as their children. As such, Ingrid and Bery, as well as their families, finance Bery’s Place with their life-savings, and provide a nice home, nourishing meals, an abundance of parental love and care, and a conductive environment to achieve. However, they currently require more support, as they are financially overstretched and cover most expenses to ensure their girls an academic future.
