London & Van Holland is growing! Fer d’Arnaud and Cooper Goei set up the office in 1994. It had to be another accounting and tax consultancy. Large enough to be able to compete with the big four in terms of content. But also so compact that employees could have room for personal development. That plan succeeded. The company grew into a medium-sized organization where approximately eighty employees now work with pleasure.
