Margaux Donckier, Public Affairs Director at HB Antwerp, is passionate about working in fast-paced environments thriving to impact the world positively.
In 2020, Margaux joined the young start-up HB Antwerp. Being part of the management team, leading strategic communication, public relations, and business development, Margaux has a crucial role in positioning HB as a disruptor in the mineral resource industry.
Margaux led the HB Capsule project, a proprietary Internet of Things device launched in 2022 that uses blockchain technology and data analytics to track every stage of a natural diamond’s journey – down to the most minute interaction – bringing clarity never seen in the diamond industry.
In 2021, Margaux established the HB Academy in Antwerp, a training institute for craftspeople solving the difficulty of finding skilled diamond polishers. That same year, she also launched the HB Innovation Lab in Botswana, a comprehensive training program to cultivate sector-specific skills and offer meaningful, in-country training and job opportunities for young people in Botswana.
