Meet our Management Team

Hicham Shatou
Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

Founded LeQuest: April 2011

As a child Hicham lived in many different countries where he endured several sports injuries. He experienced first-hand that many challenges in the medical industry were similar across the world. This sparked his interest in the industry at a young age. After receiving his engineering degree at the TU-Delft, he turned his focus towards creating a safer and better healthcare environment for both healthcare professionals and patients. In 2011 this led to him founding LeQuest.

He built an international, multi-cultural team that shares the company’s mission to close the gap between medical staff and medical technology. As a technology-driven entrepreneur, Hicham is not afraid to disrupt the status quo and with the support of his wife and three kids this is exactly what he is setting out to do.
