Make My Day Group - Our Team -  Patrick Huybrechts

Patrick Huybrechts
CEO

Patrick’s journey started when he formerly worked with his father in their family business specializing in slot machines. During this time, he learned the business from the ground up. Further, he worked side by side with café owners and breweries where he developed many skills. Negotiation obviously stood out.

Since the café owners needed additional services to run their operations, the family business added accounting to their services. The café owners were, without a doubt, thrilled to work with accountants who understood their business model. This allowed Patrick to develop his finance flair and build relationships with banks and the tax authorities.

Additionally, real estate was a logical next step and Patrick. He invested in real estate and developed a portfolio of properties that he manages.

His motto has always been that negotiation and communication are the key drivers to success throughout his career. At the end of the day, when everything is set and done, both parties must feel satisfied with the end results.

At the present time, Patrick’s role at Make My Day Group focuses on working with entrepreneurs and companies in mediation and negotiation so as to address their conflicts. For example, this can include shareholders conflicts, rental contracts re-negotiation, and also outstanding balances due.

His experience is in real estate investment and management, mediation, and negotiation.

Patrick is passionate about working with entrepreneurs.
