International Executive Search

You want to hire the best people in the market. Preferably quickly, but especially well. Because the match must be right, in all areas. Whether your company is growing, innovating, digitizing, internationalizing, or scaling up, you are looking for executives with impact. Whether it concerns a C-level position at a Dutch scale-up, a vacancy for Country Manager at a multinational, a role in the middle management of a corporate, a management traineeship for private equity portfolio companies, or the scaling up of an innovative tech team; recruiting good candidates requires a wide reach within the qualitative top of the labor market. We can also provide excellent assistance to employers when diversity is a key recruitment focus.

What once started as a boutique office has grown over the years into a leading office in the BeNeLux and through the international Taplow Executives network on the European market. Executives United has a diverse talent pool of professionals both inside and outside the Netherlands. Thanks to this broad network, our team of specialized consultants can quickly bring the best candidates to your table. The network varies from experienced leaders who have proven themselves over fifteen years. Common denominators are a results-oriented mindset, analytical skills, and experience with (driving) large-scale transformations.

Needs analysis

We start off with a thorough needs analysis based on the SCOM-method. We want to know more than simply what the job entails. By asking in-dept questions and truly listening to your answers we learn to understand strategic, financial and hiring objectives. We believe that defining what you want and - perhaps more importantly - what you don’t want, is a first critical step in the hiring process.

Consigliere - Consultancy

Successful change does not come naturally. What often begins as an organizational change that sounds so logical on paper, turns out to be a lot more unruly in practice. It is precisely this fact that makes organizational change so interesting. Because in every organization and with every change, processes arise that are not in line with how it was conceived and expected beforehand.

In the current complexity and dynamics, Executives United helps and coaches organizations to get the most out of people/organizations and to change consciously and convincingly. We have a wide range of consigliere and consulting expertise on board ranging from Healthcare, Cyber security, Real Estate, Supply Chain, Human Resources, Finance, Manufacturing, Technology to Agile working.
