Jacques Bastin, had not yet had the opportunity to express his opinion on this sale. He tells us how he sees the change: “For the group’s customers, it will be continuity in change. I am selling the shareholding, but I remain the director of operations in the Marchoise structure. The workforce of about thirty people is also in place. Good knowledge of the residential area, customers and files are great assets for the team.”
“The family character and company values will not be affected by this synergyhe continues. Insurance is facing change in an increasingly risky world. Our environment is changing, the universe of risks is expanding and the conditions for practicing insurance are becoming more complex. Faced with a profession that has changed a lot in recent years while retaining strong traditional components, I am convinced that tomorrow’s challenges will force insurance brokers to adapt in depth. Today, grouping becomes a necessity in order to respond effectively to the changing needs of the market.”
Furthermore, Marie-France and Jacques Bastin explain, as in many family businesses, that they wanted to pass on their brokerage firm to their son, but that an accident in life decided otherwise.
“For us, the priority is to continue to develop strategic partnerships for the benefit of customers and companies, who will therefore benefit from the strength of an enlarged group and the synergies that will arise from there.”specifies Jacques Bastin.
