“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
The global Talent Mapping that they presented gave us a lot of market insights and contributed to a better decision making process to hire the right candidates. People from various countries and continents moved to Amsterdam to work for our global team in Sandvik Mining. Some of these candidates have already been promoted into more senior roles.
“Throughout the different regions where we have activities, Kestria has been able to support us in finding strong candidates for the open positions we have had within our fast growing organisation. With a very professional and consistent approach, they have proven to be a true and reliable partner in business.”
What started as a good relationship with Kestria Netherlands has now grown with us throughout continental Europe. I have recommended them and will continue to do so for their excellent work in one of HR's key areas of expertise.
“The right people can make the difference, drive change, boost business performance and strengthen the organisational culture. When it comes to identifying the right people, raising their interest for our organisation and supporting the selection process, it is Hagoort & Partners with their Kestria network who we trust and partner with.”
Over the last decade Forbo Flooring Systems and Cees Hagoort and Patrick Westerburger of Hagoort & Partners have established a true partnership in the executive search for Forbo. They thoroughly understand our organisational needs and know how to translate that into a candidate profile. The key to success is their professionalism and high quality processes, combined with intuitive flair and the added value of the Kestria network. From Sao Paulo to Amsterdam or Moscow, from Copenhagen to Hong Kong, always when it was essential to acquire the right candidate, we have always partnered with Hagoort and Kestria and they have always surpassed our expectations.
