Our story

VALPEO International

International leadership and organisational advisory

Transcending traditional talent perspectives

VALPEO traces its roots back to Accord Group, a leading executive search firm established in 2005 with an unwavering commitment to identifying and nurturing exceptional talent. Over time, it became apparent that there was a significant market need not just for locating talent but also for understanding, evaluating, and unlocking human potential.

These insights laid the foundation for VALPEO; founded in 2017 from a vision that Fabiaan Van Vrekhem and his team were passionate about: to revolutionise talent management by integrating human science, business acumen, and cutting-edge technology. With VALPEO, the emphasis shifted from merely spotting talent to fully understanding its depth, breadth, and transformative capabilities.
