A Word From our President

Ms. Brigitte Vantieghem

Welcome to the BELGIAN AMERICAN Chamber of the South website!

As it has been stated multiple times, the Southeast region of the USA is experiencing an economic boom and at BACoS, we are proud to accompany this success by ensuring that Belgian and American companies meet and share their products, ideas and expertise.

Over the years, I’ve been involved with the Chamber and have had the opportunity to meet business owners and employees of companies who I would have not otherwise met – and that has been inspiring. There is an incredible variety of businesses and so much talent to discover. Our community is a variety of Belgian and American companies and individuals that are here to grow with you in your entrepreneurship. 

At BACoS, you can promote your company, meet other leaders, have access to opportunities to network, further your career, help young entrepreneurs, hear success stories, give back to the community, stay up to date on industry news and socialize. Our goal is to help you start or grow your business through our network and the right business partners.

Enjoy your visit on our website, and please consider joining our international network today!  

Looking forward to see you in one our next events,

Sincerely yours,

Brigitte Peleman-Vantieghem
