Brussels has been home to Boyden for over two decades, giving us an inside view of and access to some of the world’s most respected organizations and associated businesses based here.
Boyden is one of the few global search firms with a dedicated practice to this sector, and our offices are perfectly positioned within the country’s premier corridor for defense contractors, intelligence agencies, and consulting firms.
