Hudson Belgium was founded in 1982 by Ivan De Witte under the name De Witte & Morel and soon positioned itself as the partner of choice for organisations wishing to attract and develop the very best professionals in their fields. During the subsequent decades, Hudson grew to become the market leader with a reputation for delivering high quality HR services. Between 1995 and 2001, a structural partnership was entered into with Ernst & Young (EY). Between 2001 and 2018, Hudson Belgium was part of the NASDAQ-listed organisation Hudson Global. In 2018, current chairman and CEO Ivan De Witte and his management team bought the Hudson Belgium branch back via a management buy-out (MBO). A year later, an acquisition was made in Luxembourg (Alcor Executive) and a branch was opened in Amsterdam. Since December 9th 2021 Hudson is part of the Randstad Group, global market leader in HR services.
