Our story

Growth and change is in our DNA, excellence is what we strive for.

CFOrent is the result of years of experience and a passion for entrepreneurship

CFOrent was founded in 2019, based on the longlasting trust of partners who have worked together for over a decade. The three founders (Joris, Dieter, Jan)  who met each other in different places, came together and built the fundamentals of CFOrent while brainstorming in a bar on the ‘Mechelseplein’ in Antwerp. These roots of Antwerp can still be found back in the logo.

The founders can build on a strong background in finance and management combined with a clear vision and passion for entrepreneurship, they decided to shape the future of various other businesses, together. 

This vision and feeling have made sure that CFOrent was able to grow steadily since 2019. The growth of our clients enabled also the fact that CFOrent has an international footprint with the office in New York. This international footprint is still an important element, as CFOrent can help clients while crossing the Atlantic. 

After the departure of Jan, Dieter and Joris decided to step-up a notch and decided that to increase the impact on multiple organisations. To do this the team needed to grow further. By working with a team of skilled financial professionals with backgrounds in audit, controlling, tax and business control, who are taught to thrive in a digital world of growth, change and flexibility, the impact of CFOrent on organisations in Europe and the United States can grow. 

We seek to drive this entrepreneurial mindset to the fullest while enabling others as well. Collaboration will remain one the most important elements by which our company will evolve. We’ll continue to strengthen our dynamic team driven by experienced leadership. 

Growth and change is in our DNA, and that is exactly what we’ll do! As an organisation, with and for our clients. Because when working together, more is possible to achieve than meets the eye. 

CFOrent wants to be an enabler for growth in your organisation and is known to work in competitive, dynamic environments. CFOrent truly stands next to you.
