Welcome to the Lighthouse Group

Our mission is to build bridges between Europe and Central Asia, which we successfully do since 1999.

About the Lighthouse Group

In 1999, businessman and mentor, Jeroen Ketting founded his first company Lighthouse and started to provide market-entry services to foreign businesses in the CIS.

For more than 28 years, the recurring theme of Ketting’s business activities has been his bridge function between European and Central Asian businesses. Owners and top-managers of international companies, that do business in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, used Ketting as their trusted advisor and benefited from his extensive knowledge and network.

Today, Lighthouse has grown into the Lighthouse Group, representing three different businesses: Lighthouse Management, Lighthouse Technologies and Ketting Valuetainment.
