Meet our team

Ever since De Vroedt & Thierry was founded, our style of service has focused on creativity and quality. In this regard, De Vroedt & Thierry only appoints partners who have proven experience in successfully managing or operating a company. In addition, we find it vital that everyone on our team is genuinely interested in the ambitions, motivational needs and personality traits of the talents and customers whom we support. This means they are not only keen on asking relevant questions but on asking the question behind the question. Our firm’s partners, consultants and other team members are driven by purpose (intrinsically wanting to contribute to today’s relevant challenges), professionalism, passion and a personal approach.
