Olivier Willems 2023 - cirkel

Every day I’m working work with a handful of clients all operating in different sectors. I’m in contact with both SME managers and the executives of multinationals or investment funds. This diversity ensures that I can be found early in the office every morning with a smile on my face.  

I’m also involved in the national and international expansion of the Baker Tilly Corporate Finance branch.  Since mid-2019 I’ve headed the EMEA Corporate Finance Community (Europe, Middle-East & Africa). This is an international role that I’m happy to take on because it creates added value for our customers.

In my spare time I’ll enjoy a barbecue with the family, relatives and friends. And every week I try to make a tour through the Pajottenland by mountain bike.
