In het verleden had ik Claassen & Company gebruikt voor een succesvolle zoekopdracht naar een ervaren Transfer Pricing Manager. Jaren later kwam ik weer met Claassen & Company in aanraking als kandidaat. Ik was op zoek naar een nieuwe CFO rol, het liefst bij een middelgrote dynamische onderneming met betrokken Private Equity investeerders. Dankzij de goede contacten van Claassen & Company bij veel Private Equity bedrijven werd mijn profiel daar snel goed ontvangen en volgden meerdere kennismakingsgesprekken. Dit resulteerde uiteindelijk, dankzij de goede opvolging van Claassen & Company, in een aanstelling als CFO bij SENTIA Group NV, een deelneming van Waterland.

In a very pleasant and efficient way Claassen & Company conducted and completed the CFO search for our German office. The professional “intake” of Claassen & Company lead in short time frame to a splendid list of potential candidates. Moreover their communication throughout the process has been very effective.

Claassen & Company took care of the search for a new CFO. Not a easy assignment because the outgoing CFO was one of the founders of D&B TFG. That was the reason we looked differently at the new kid on the block. Claassen & Company was fully aware of this fact and put a lot of emphasis on the “soft criteria”. After a thorough intake and a relative short period of time they presented us a shortlist of candidates. Top of the list was a candidate which I felt was a complete misfit with the requirements we had set out. This candidate came from Unilever/Akzo and we felt was not compatible with a small company like D&B. Claassen & Company insisted we should speak to him. The rest is history. It was “bulls eye” with Reinier Otten as our new CFO. Although he had a corporate background, he blended in far better than we could ever expect. Everyday I have the pleasure working with Reinier and see the added value he brings with him to D&B. We appreciate the work and tenacity that Claassen & Company displayed while undertaking this search for us.
Bas Hertz, CEO D&B The Facility Group
Claassen & Company conducted and completed the search for our Country Manager in The Netherlands. A key position to secure our further growth and success. Although we encountered some hurdles, our Claassen & Company partner took on the challenges without hesitation. We were positively surprised that so many of the candidates we met had a really good cultural fit with us, not just the final ones. In addition, we could use our partner for advice with regards to negotiations and contractual questions, which was very valuable to us.
