element61, the thought-leading Analytics consulting company, part of Moore Belgium, is pleased to announce the integration of WeQan into its team.
WeQan, a specialized provider of Qlik and Power BI services, solutions and software, was founded in December 2015 by Jean-Marc Toussaint. From its inception, WeQan has been dedicated to Qlik and has during the last 8 years delivered QlikView and Qlik Sense expertise to over 150 customers. Since 2022, WeQan expanded its services to include Power BI.
Jean-Marc Toussaint brings over 35 years of experience in various finance and IT roles, including serving as CFO in large international companies. His journey led him to the position of CIO at the Lhoist Group before venturing into entrepreneurship in 2008.
In the period from 2009 to 2015, Jean-Marc co-founded and co-led Velixis, a Business Intelligence consulting firm initially specialized in Business Objects. Jean-Marc introduced the Qlik practice in the early 2010s. In 2012, Velixis was sold to the Micropole Group, subsequently becoming Micropole Belgium in 2015.

"After the acquisition of Bijster in mid-2023, element61 continues to consolidate its leading position in the Belgian Analytics services market. With the integration of WeQan, element61 geographically extends its footprint even further in the Walloon region and the French market.
With our existing Qlik Competence Center and together with Bijster and WeQan, element61 is well positioned to become the leading Qlik partner in Belgium, with combined Qlik-related revenues of more than 6.5 million € in 2024” comments Stijn Vermeulen, Managing Director of element61.
“Joining element61 opens up avenues to provide WeQan customers with a broader spectrum of technologies and services, encompassing Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, Data Governance, Planning & Budgeting, Financial Consolidation, and ESG Reporting”, continues Stijn Vermeulen.
“In addition to welcoming an accomplished talent pool of Business Intelligence specialists into our growing team, this new collaboration fortifies our footprint in Wallonia, fostering stronger connections with both clients and team members. The existing WeQan offices in Genval (two steps away from the famous lake with the same name) will become an additional element61 office”, Stijn Vermeulen continues.
“To support its growth plan and considering that I will soon turn 60😊, WeQan needed to find a partner, that shares the same cultural values of customer satisfaction, a high-quality service offering and care for the Personal Development of the team members. element61 also brings support in several areas such as HR & people experience, employer branding and campus recruitment, lead generation, marketing and events to name a few”, comments Jean-Marc Toussaint, CEO of WeQan.
“I’m convinced that the collaboration between WeQan and element61 will create significant value for both parties, as well as for our customers and for the team, who will have access to exciting new development opportunities”.
