Directorship and administration services
Ruben presents his services in two formats, considering the diverse range of tasks that a local director may carry out: independent director services and administrator services.
As an independent director, he provides oversight and guidance to stakeholders without being involved in day-to-day operations. In contrast, as an administrator, he takes on a more hands-on role in the company's management.
With these two options as starting point, Ruben tailors his services to meet the unique needs of each client.
Independent (non-executive) director services
The independent director services are designed for companies that already have a management team in Luxembourg or that are assisted by professionals established in the country. The services include:
Holding mandates as director of companies based in Luxembourg.
Valuable insights into best practices in corporate governance and tax structuring, accumulated over more than 20 years of exposure to a wide variety of organizations and operational structures.
Unbiased views as Ruben is not affiliated with any particular stakeholder or service provider.
Participation in board meetings.
Administrator (executive director) services
The administrator services are aimed at companies with more extensive requirements and involve overseeing their day-to-day operations. In addition to the services offered as a non-executive director, the services include:
Administration of day-to-day operations and decision-making on significant functions.
Coordination of the meetings of the board of directors and the general meetings of shareholders.
