Next Ventures announces European expansion
To support the continued expansion of Next Ventures’ European operations, the Group also successfully on-boarded senior country managers for the Netherlands and Germany to capitalise on the growth generated to date in both regions.
Anasja Juinen joins as country manager Netherlands for Next Ventures BV and Marc Parmentier joins as country manager Germany for Next Ventures GmbH.
Anasja Juinen has over 16 years recruitment experience in the Dutch market with the successful provision of fully referenced permanent and temporary resources to industries including retail, telecommunications, banking and utilities. Juinen’s extensive Dutch recruitment experience means she is well versed in local employment regulations, rates and industries combined with a vast network of fully referenced, technical Dutch consultants.
The Group's ongoing recruitment drive for its new offices in Amsterdam has resulted in successfully on-boarding Bryan Peereboom, a specialist niche technology focused recruiter, who will support Juinen on her growth strategy for Next Ventures BV.
In Munich, the group on-boarded Marc Parmentier as its country manager for Next Ventures GmbH to continue the growth in that region from its new offices in Munich. Parmentier brings 16 years’ experience in the specialist IT recruitment market with in-depth knowledge of staffing, recruitment and workforce solutions for the DACH region. The Group continues to actively engage technically focused recruitment consultants across the region to work alongside Parmentier and support the Groups’ German growth strategy.
Richard Lacey, co-founder of Next Ventures, explains, “The Group continues to yield strong, consistent performance, with 65% of total business generated overseas whilst our Swiss and German operations consistently perform ahead of projections. Upon analysis, we identified the regions where our specialist niche technology recruitment expertise could be capitalised upon and subsequently opened new offices in the heart of both Amsterdam and Munich’s cities to provide optimum support for our expanding client bases.”
Lacey added, “We are confident our newly appointed country managers will continue our strong European growth with the continued delivery of first-class niche technology recruitment services to our existing clients, add new clients and industries to our current European portfolio and provide an up-surge in our network of referenced, technical professionals not just in respective regions but across Europe."
