Didier Delangue, founder and CEO of the ASD Group tax firm, begins his activity as a tax representative in 1993, after working for several years as a customs agency leader for important businesses. He is an autodidact who shows a great interest for the corporate world.
It is in those days, with the creation of the Schengen Area and the opening of the European borders, that Didier Delangue comes to realize that customs declarations were becoming increasingly complex. In this context, he decides to create ASD Group in 2000, employing his international experience for his clients’ benefits. Facing constantly changing regulations, Didier Delangue has chosen the mission to support his clients and to facilitate their international development. The main targets of the group are to support clients by simplifying and managing administrative procedures and also helping them achieve and maintain compliance facing these ever-changing regulations.
