We are delighted to announce that Edouard Thijssen has been inducted into the Family Business United ‘Family Business Hall of Fame,’ which recognises the exceptional contribution of individuals and their work in advancing the field of family business.
Edouard is the founder and CEO of Trusted Family, the leading digital governance platform for multi-generational family businesses and family offices.
At the age of 21, he realised how difficult it is to stay together as a business family in the long term and to remain successful over the generations. As the family grows and spreads out in different cities or countries, how can a business family make good group decisions and keep everyone aligned?
Edouard developed a digital governance platform and mobile app for his own family business, together with a friend from another Belgian family business. They quickly found out that many other family companies around the world had similar needs, and they turned it into a company called Trusted Family.
Today Trusted Family works with many of the world’s leading family businesses and family offices.
As Paul Andrews, Founder and CEO of Family Business United adds, “Edouard has been a key pioneer in the area of family business communication and governance over the years and truly deserves his place in the Family Business Hall of Fame.”
As Edouard concludes, “I am truly delighted and honoured that my work has been recognised by Family Business United and gained me recognition as an inductee into the Family Business Hall of Fame.”
