Consilio's input confirmed my future plans for the company and made the entry of the third generation possible.  Regular consultations and assessments of results are set up together with Finpower, which takes care of the monthly reporting.

Recently, the family decided to also call on Consilio to set up a supervisory board. Today this board mainly works on strengthening our organisation and developing a clear strategy for the future.

Consilio's support is valuable to me and my family whenever we want to discuss crucial turning points.

We realised a significant international expansion of our plant propagation activities, including in China and the US. As a result, the financial support base of our company became too small.
We decided to thoroughly adjust our operations in light of the expansion of our markets and the involvement of our family in the fast-growing company.

We called on Consilio to guide us. A formal decision-making system was created with the introduction of a Board of Directors and an external chairman. The family interests were anchored in a family charter and subsequent consultation moments.

Through acquisitions our company has quickly grown  into one of the most important Belgian fruit and vegetable traders in Belgium.

I asked Consilio to attend our monthly meetings.  Consilio operates as our external sounding board and at the same time keeps a sharp eye on the concrete implementation of our future plans.

We count on Consilio to help us professionalise our decision-making.

Consilio first entered our company at a time when there was no uniformty in how the fast-growing brewery was managed.   Consilio initiated a Board of directors with an external chairman.  With their support and  expertise, today all decisions are taken at the board table.

The appointment of an external CEO and the integration into our family history was made possible by the support and input of Consilio.

By calling on the Consilio network, we found solutions for the further development of our family business. Today we are preparing the entry of the ninth generation.

Steel Force is a trading and services company in the steel sector. The rapid growth of the company put additional pressure on the organisation and operation of the company.

We asked Consilio to work out the transition from an ownership structure based on the nation model to a centrally managed organisation with the appointment of a CEO and the installation of a Board of Directors.

At the same time, Consilio was working on the entry of the next generation of employees into Steel Force's capital and consultation structure.  This laid the foundation for the further expansion and continuity of our company.

Transtec is an organisation that performs assignments for international bodies (EU, Worldbank) that provide funds to finance international development projects.  Transtec is asked to monitor the correct use of these funds and to make recommendations in this regard.

Because our organisation uses various international experts who work for Transtec on a permanent or temporary basis, the anchoring of this expertise is questioned and, therefore, the continuity of our services.

We called on Consilio to develop the functioning of our organisation into a participation model with special recommendations both in terms of shareholdership and decision-making.

Consilio's contribution strengthened the continuity and cohesion of the organisation, giving us more opportunities for further growth.

During the past financial crisis, my company went through a very difficult period. The logistics activities simply stopped. At that time, our company's financial partners required additional financial guarantees which my wife and I were unable to provide at that time.

Consilio was able to turn the tide by elaborating a plan and governance model that gave the banks confidence to believe in the continuity of my company again.

Today we work with a Board of directors and a Strategic Committee in which Consilio still plays an important role.

As  Flemish government, we called upon Consilio's expertise to thoroughly adapt the decision-making to the rules of Public Governance.

The era De Grauwe had ensured that the CEO of the VRT had extensive powers.

Consilio wrote the draft texts that were later laid down in a decree, better alligning the content of the position of CEO and its operation with that of the Board of Directors.  Specifically, some of the CEO's powers were transferred to the BoD and the latter was given a clear mandate to manage the VRT.

This important contribution by Consilio has recently proven its worth.

My company is active in the installation of HVAC and air treatment and was engaged in a complex succession period.  I called on Consilio to adjust the structure of my company so that a smooth family succession became possible.

Consilio installed a Board of Directors with an external chairman and brought the necessary expertise necessary to accompany the transition to the next generation.
