Thierry Deleuze: “AVEX has a strong focus on quality and service. That is why I join the AVEX team with great enthusiasm and look forward to growing the activities in Belgium and Luxembourg together. Within AVEX I experience a corporate culture in which the core values of a real family business are tangible, with the power of personal attention, involvement and integrity. This in combination with the intensive cooperation with international teams creates a very interesting dynamic. Together we can support our clients at the highest level of service.”
Strong growth from multiple years of partnerships and more complex service needs
At AVEX Belgium/Luxembourg, Sales Director Thierry Deleuze has recently been appointed Managing Director. In this new position within the Belgian team, Thierry Deleuze will focus on further developing the AVEX organization in Belgium and Luxembourg. As an audio visual service provider, the originally Dutch family business AVEX has been serving clients in the corporate market, finance, government, hospitality and healthcare for almost 35 years.
With his experience in sales and project management at technical suppliers in the demanding top sports world over the past 20 years, Thierry brings valuable skills to AVEX. His focus has always been on quality of service and optimal cooperation.
AVEX has seen its activities in Belgium grow strongly in the past period, partly after obtaining an extensive cooperation contract with the European Commission. In the AV and collaboration market, growth can be seen in particular in projects related to the renewal of workplace environments, experience spaces and smart buildings. In the field of event support, there is an increase towards hybrid and online events. The market is asking for more intensive service, advice and often long-term partnerships.
Together we can support our clients at the highest level of service.
René Schaddelee, CEO of AVEX: “We see a promising market in which flexibility and rapid switching are important. With many international clients as well. Thierry brings the right experience to guide our successful team in Belgium to the next step in professionalism in our organization. Our clients are increasingly looking for a partner they can turn to for both smaller projects and more complex AV/ICT projects and events. We are there for our customers with a scalable team of specialists.”
