Wim Wuyts 010917

WTS Global has appointed Wim Wuyts as chief executive officer in the newly created role to help grow the firm internationally.



Wuyts, a proven tax expert and leader, joins the firm from Bekaert, a Belgian based multinational corporation. He has more than 20 years of experience in leading tax functions on a national and international scale.

In his new role, Wuyts will be responsible for further expanding the WTS Global network and strengthening ties among the member firms. He will focus on developing the existing global service lines and establishing new ones in order to further promote the content-based and structural integration of network firms under one umbrella. He will also lead the central management team which provides quality management, knowledge management, business development, marketing and communication support for WTS Global.

In addition to his previous role at Bekaert, Wuyts has worked for the Belgian government, Arthur Andersen, Levi Strauss & Co, Baxter and Agfa-Gevaert. He has specific expertise in tax-related consultancy for restructurings and M&A transactions. In addition, Wuyts has long been committed to developing future tax leaders, and has established a tax leadership programme offered at the CEDEP (European Centre for Executive Development) campus in Fontainebleau in France and in Silicon Valley, US.
