The vision of Benjamin
‘Because of my academic background, I look to the future from a historical perspective. Top talent has always been able to distinguish itself through adaptability. The leaders of both the past and the future have always possessed this quality. It is these actors who are responsible for the growth of wealth in society and allows them to answer the fundamental questions laid out before us. Human capital is and always will be among the most important commodities of the economy and society. The right person in the right place makes a world of difference. This is exactly why working at De Vroedt & Thierry gives me energy. Leaders that can distinguish themselves through adaptability and their intrinsic will to learn will always belong amongst the top.’
