About us

"Expatriate care with a personal touch" is not just a slogan but a philosophy that says a lot about who we are.

Be Welcome was founded in 2003 by three partners.
We, Jules, Tine and Marc, are linked both by family ties as well as by our common feeling of “serving people” as a mission in life.
We all have very specific professional experience and backgrounds, which result in a unique combination of knowledge and skills.

Jules has 20 years of experience at the Alcatel University as project leader for the training and education for foreign telecommunication engineers.
As such, he welcomed visitors from countries all over the world such as China, Pakistan, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Nepal, India, Mexico, Russia, Tanzania and also from throughout Europe.

After his retirement many of them have remained in contact and remember Jules as a dynamic, enthusiastic person, with unfailing energy and always ready to help with the most varied problems and questions.
His understanding of foreign cultures provides a remarkable solidarity with our visitors.

Tine, daughter of Jules, inherited the dynamism and energy of her father.
She obtained a Master in Applied Economics at the University of Antwerp and an MBA in marketing at the University of Birmingham in the UK.

Tine has been working for twelve years in the domains of marketing and sales with companies including Pietercil Resta, Masterfoods, Aral, Q8 Petroleum.
Besides the general management, marketing and commercial support of Be Welcome Tine develops and teaches different Cultural Training packages as a unique and professional coaching tool for the many foreign employees and managers working in or leading multicultural teams.

Marc, husband of Tine, has spent 18 years of his professional career in general management, marketing, sales and business development on international level in companies as Mars, Beckers and Wessanen. His broad business understanding and a strong customer focus provided a solid base to start up his own company Be Welcome in 2003, together with his wife Tine. Over the years they built up an outstanding reputation in Relocation Services and further developed Business Development and Legal services.

A dedicated team of highly qualified consultants guarantee the local support of foreign employees and their family within the different regions in Belgium. Each with the best local contacts and detailed knowledge of the client’s needs.

We are highly committed to our job and above all we take great pleasure in providing our clients with the best possible service by offering both a warm welcome and professional support to their stay in Belgium.

Be Welcome is a member of Abra and member of Eura. Through extensive partnership with selected local providers we co-ordinate and support your relocation from Belgium to any other country.
