Our Story

VALPEO International

Shaping tomorrow’s success through understanding.

Unlocking human potential

The roots of VALPEO lie deeply entrenched in the heritage of Accord Group. Founded in 2005, Accord Group emerged as a leading executive search firm with an unwavering commitment to identify and nurture exceptional talent. Over the years, it became evident that there was an unmet need in the market – not only to locate talent but to understand, evaluate, and unlock human potential.

Transcending traditional talent perspectives

2017 marked the culmination of these insights. VALPEO was not just born out of a need but out of a vision, a vision that Fabiaan Van Vrekhem and his team were deeply passionate about. The ambition is to develop an approach that transcended traditional talent perspectives, blending human science, business acumen, and cutting-edge technology. With VALPEO, it wasn’t just about spotting talent; it was about comprehending its depth, breadth, and transformative potential.
