Pedro Matthynssens, CEO at Vanbreda: ‘We’re delighted to be able to add this organisation’s expertise to our services. Its corporate culture is also a good fit with ours, which is very important for successful integration and long-term cooperation. There are now 17 subsidiaries flourishing within the Vanbreda group, and that’s something we’re quite proud of.’

Evelyne Lauwers, Director of Employee Benefits at Vanbreda: ‘The years of experience and expertise that Simplex has built up are unique in the market. Managers Bob Daenen and Miek Debusschere run an attractive client portfolio of self-employed people, SMEs and large companies. As well as traditional personnel insurance (pension, death, hospitalisation, disability and accidents), the personal and financial risks of directors and their companies are also covered. We can see clear synergies between our organisations and our clients and are convinced that this collaboration will enable us to take our services to an even higher level. Both managers will remain on board at Vanbreda Simplex and will continue to play a key role in the future.’

Bob Daenen, manager of Simplex: ‘For us this is an opportunity for further growth in expertise, technical innovations and capacity as insurers. We’ll be able to serve our clients even better thanks to this collaboration with Vanbreda. We have confidence in this next step and are ensuring the long-term continuity of our organisation with it.’
