Entrepreneurship Is Running Through Our Veins and That of Our Customers.
Moore Belgium was founded in 1967 and expanded by the brothers Marcel and Frans Verschelden. After the company was split into two separate branches (Audit and Accountancy) in 1990 and ‘Verschelden Audit’ joined the Moore Stephens network, both entities merged again in 2008. The business grew from ‘Verschelden Accountancy’ into ‘Moore Stephens Verschelden’ and ‘Moore Stephens Belgium’ and finally into the present ‘Moore Belgium’ in 2019.
If there is one certainty throughout the entire period, it is that we have always been ‘the company’s companion’ and that we (have) support(ed) our customers with comprehensive practical and advisory services.
Apart from ensuring organic growth, Frans and his nephews Peter and Bart Verschelden (sons of Marcel) also invested heavily in inorganic growth during the years 2008 to 2012 through various mergers and acquisitions in the field of Accountancy, Audit and Tax & Legal Advice. Local growth was accompanied by international expansion: in 2012, Andries Verschelden, son of Frans, set up an office in China.
Following the 2008-2012 expansion in traditional finance business, organic growth continued but the company also decided to expand its range of services to its customers. Thanks to the acquisitions of Winx (Corporate Finance, 2013), X-STRA (advice on strategy and operational excellence, 2013), element61 (Business Analytics, 2016) and The Optimal (Moore Interim Management, 2019), Moore Belgium today offers its customers an extensive range of services.
When the investment company Waterland in 2020 became shareholder of Moore Belgium, a new phase of accelerated growth was initiated, with the take-over and acquisition of a few nice offices and companies in different services. Thanks to 8 business units offering cross-over services, Moore Belgium continues to strengthen its position in the market and creates sustainable, innovative and long-term scenarios for its customers.
On an international level, Moore Belgium is also continuing to expand. In addition to having our own entity in Shanghai, Moore Belgium is part of the larger international Moore network. This worldwide network enables us, as a locally based company, to help our customers with their plans abroad as well.
Moore Belgium, because as a customer you deserve nothing less than our full attention and care.
At every step of ‘your’ history.
