About us

The 3 partners of R&T consultancy are Frans Visser, Paul Robrechts and Jan van Eck and together they have over 90 years of experience in security.

Our great all-for-one-team is supported by three executive assistants. Thanks to them, the quality of service in HR, Marketing and Finance is guaranteed at a high level.

Frans Visser

After his career within facility & security management at ING, Frans has been working as an independent consultant since 2008. In addition to his substantive expertise, Frans is valued by clients for his communication at all levels, objectivity and neutrality, and tenacity in delivering the message.

Creating a safe and secure organisation is one of the responsibilities of entrepreneurs and top management, while they prefer to focus on the further development of the primary business. We see that this development is leading to an increasing need for "worry-free" organisation of safety and security management. This is often expressed in terms of advice through to the implementation of more complex security projects.

The complexity of implementing and embedding security measures in the organisation is often underestimated; this is precisely where his strength lies.

Paul Robrechts

Paul was a national security officer for twenty years at three major companies. For 15 years he was Director Safety and Security: 10 years of Bacob and 5 years of Generale Bank-Fortis. From 2000 to 2005, he was Director Security, Safety and Health at De Post.

In 2007, together with Marc Thienpont, he founded the company Robrechts & Thienpont in Belgium. Paul strongly believes in a security policy based on a long-term vision linked to a clear action plan and quick wins. His pragmatic approach reinforces the result of this policy.

He perfectly understands the security needs of modern companies. As an electronics engineer and Master of Science in Security Engineering, he developed his security core competences: strategy development, risk management, change management, organisation and culture. Reorganisation of security departments is one of his core competences, which he developed from the start of his professional career. In all these functions he has gained a lot of experience and knowledge, which today gives an extra added value to our clients.

Jan van Eck

After his architectural and design training and a career at the Police, Railway Police and Ministry of Social Affairs in various project and managerial positions, Jan developed himself as an independent safety & security consultant from 1990 onwards.

Jan has worked for over 30 years in an independent, expert and honest manner for clients of complex(er) profit and non-profit organisations, which always leads to added value in projects. This is achieved, among other things, by being able to think outside the box and having the courage to do so, but also by thinking along with the client where adjacent disciplines are concerned.

From policy up to and including implementation. By taking a step back from traditional thinking, Jan provides many clients and multidisciplinary projects with a more balanced integral safety and security at structurally lower costs.
