Our contribution

With the entry of Sofindev, the Christiaens family brings a strong financial and strategic partner on board. The Christiaens family remains a major shareholder and Alexander and Olivier Christiaens, with the support of their father and founder Marc, remain responsible for the day-to-day management of Christiaens NV. This partnership will allow Christiaens to accelerate the solid growth of its business. This step will also help the expansion of the existing team and competencies, and facilitate strategic acquisitions as part of the growth areas.

“Sofindev's entry into our capital is a well-considered decision, which is part of our ambition to further grow and develop Christiaens in a dynamic and consolidating market of business software and IT service providers. With Sofindev we bring in a complementary partner who shares the same values as our family business and has a mentality and vision for the future that fits perfectly with the current needs and ambitions of our company.”
