WE SPECIALISE IN FINDING FANTASTIC OPPORTUNITIES
FOR DIGITAL AND DATA SPECIALISTS WITH THE MOST INNOVATIVE BUSINESS ACROSS EUROPE AND THE USA.
I started working in recruitment in 2005 and have never left this dynamic industry. With a bachelors degree in Hospitality Management and a Masters degree in Business Administration, I started my career as a trainee recruitment consultant with a listed recruitment firm. For this organisation I also set up a new business venture in Amsterdam. I joined Darwin in 2012 because of their vision and long term strategy, as well as their entrepreneurial mindset. I launched the Amsterdam office and managed to grow a great new recruitment company in Holland. My focus now is to do the same for our European and US offices in Amsterdam, London, Munich, Berlin, Zurich and Boston. Our focus is on repeat business, building long term business relationships, and delivering a great service. I have a driven personality and my strengths are to create a fun working environment with highly motivated sales and recruitment talent. Working with clear objectives and smart goals is how I manage to increase market share in our regions. within the IT and Telco recruitment market. Next to that, I train for Olympic Triathlons and love to spend time with my wife, our son and daughter, while loving the Burgundy life style.View my jobs
