Vic Swerts and his vision

Vic Swerts is one of the most successful entrepreneurs in Flanders. From a young age he has known that hard work pays off. Even 50 years later his objectives for Soudal remain ambitious.

Vic is of the opinion that employees are the most important assets of a company. Courage in business also means facing the challenge to bring together a unique team of people. Employees, partners and customers are no hollow concepts: people are central to any entrepreneur wanting to realise his ambitions. He sees it as his most important task to support his 'troops', the Soudal employees.

Quote from Vic Swerts:

“You have to surround yourself with good, strong people, who know their job and are better at it than you.”
