Our Belgian office opened in January 2019. Filip Mariën runs our Belgian office, as a Marktlink partner. Time to become better acquainted.
“I’ve been focusing on business takeovers ever since 2005. SME takeovers give me the most energy. Big companies are often very business-like and rational. With smaller businesses, there is also the psychological aspect: they sometimes see the company as their own offspring. That’s where we can really make a difference: as a takeover expert, you offer so much added value,” says Filip with excitement.
Indeed, making a difference is also a feature in the DNA of this particular Marktlink location. “Entrepreneurs know all about their own product or service, but lack expertise in buying or selling a company. That’s why I’m also an entrepreneur myself, in order to be a strong partner for companies wishing to sell or organise a takeover.”
