Corporate Value Associates has launched an office in Belgium, its sixth office in Europe and sixteenth globally.

The global strategy and management consulting firm, founded in 1987 in France, has opened an office in Brussels, Belgium’s capital and the heart of European politics.

Corporate Value Associates is to some extent already a familiar brand in the Belgian consulting market. The boutique consultancy, which has a team of around 300 partners and consultants worldwide, has been serving clients in the country for years, mainly through fly-in teams from its London, Paris and Amsterdam offices, among others. 

According to Fernand Dimidschstein, who has been appointed to lead Corporate Value Associates in Belgium, the consulting firm has started working on four projects since formally launching in March this year. “We are delighted with the confidence clients have placed in our team,” he said.

Earlier in his career, he worked in investment banking (The Bank of New York and at JP Morgan) and for accounting and consulting firm Arthur Andersen, where he started his career.
