Since the resale of Omega-Pharma, Marc Coucke has been investing tirelessly.
Born in 1965, Marc Coucke built his fortune on the Omega-Pharma empire, which he created in 1987 to resell in 2014. The sale was concluded for 3.8 billion euros, including 1.45 billion for Marc Coucke thus having a portfolio allowing him to invest where his passions guide him. In football, in particular, where he largely contributed to the growth of Ostend before setting his sights on Sporting Anderlecht. However, this is not the most successful investment of the most Walloon of Flemish people. Because Marc Coucke has understood all the attraction of a too often decried Wallonia.
Via his company, La Petite Merveille, he develops with his partner Bart Maerten, important projects in Durbuy. Indoor or outdoor activities, hotels, restaurants (Saint-Amour and Vieux-Pont), shops, etc. He also offered himself the Labyrinthe de Barvaux, which will move to Durbuy for the first time this summer.
