Big things can come from small countries, and so can ‘big’ people.

First, a little background in case you’ve never heard of Bart Decrem: he was born and raised in Belgium, but emigrated to the United States at the age of 22.

In March 2001, Bart moved to Korea and worked as VP Business Development for Linux One and Hancom Linux.
