Company and Management Team

Van den Braak, Bearse & Associates provides business support services to individuals and businesses who do not need or do not want to invest in full time staff.

We bring extensive executive level experience and technical expertise to your company. Our associates are skilled, experienced and have high standards. Our integrity, professionalism and values ensure confidentiality and quality services. Customer service is our highest priority.

Co-founders, Hilde van den Braak and Christine Bearse, formed VBBA in response to the dramatic shift in business practices over the past two decades. Many companies are now turning to virtual help versus hiring in-house due to the availability of quality talent operating with low overhead. With over 50 years of combined experience in the areas of executive/personal assistance and technical project management, Hilde and Christine provide personalized service to their clients in an efficient and tech savvy manner.
