What do clients say about us?

“Hagoort & Partners / Kestria Netherlands were instrumental in our journey of hiring a new CEO for RIPE NCC. They not just understood the nature of our organization, but also our self-managing and agile company culture. They presented us with a set of diverse candidates to choose from. On top of this all was executed perfectly in time.
I can highly recommend them for any Executive Search.”

Christian Kaufmann, Chairman of the RIPE NCC Executive Board

“Within our organization we have businesses in several countries in EMEA. Through Kestria we were able to find candidates also outside the territory from which we manage the day to day operation, simply by connecting the network between Hagoort & Partners (Kestria Netherlands) and Kestria abroad. The approach not only delivered strong candidates and so the luxury of making choices from a high quality shortlist, but we were also very pleased with the professional approach of the searches with respect to planning, communication and feedback.”

René Latten, HR Director PPG Coatings Northern Europe

“When we built up our global team in Amsterdam we asked Hagoort & Partners (Kestria Netherlands) for their support to find candidates for different roles with relevant track records for our company. They successfully searched, engaged and selected the people that we needed. Based on their professional and proven work methods we hired candidates for several positions on executive level, director and managerial level and senior specialists.”
