Pieter is the driving force behind Treasurer Search 

With Pieter, the work doesn’t end when the job vacancy is fulfilled and the labor contract is signed. Staying in contact is part of his task, the fun and the responsibility. There is always something to improve. Going back to how it all started, Pieter graduated in Industrial Engineering & Business and discovered that he had a special interest in Human Resource Management. On top of this, his entrepreneurial spirit also required some attention. In his search for the perfect job he developed a dedicated interest in recruitment and started his career in this field, a choice he did not regret one single day of his life.

Of course, as a young ambitious student he wanted to learn and make some extra cash doing so. One of the nice positions he held was as an internal assistant in a hospital, Pieter was not only able to contribute to improvement but was also in constant connection with all different types of employees. An excellent school of life and work. He developed a genuine interest in people and their intrinsic motivations.

Reading between the lines and listening between the sighs.

In 1994 the recruitment business became his full-time job. He learned the trade as a junior employee doing: Job intakes, reviewing CVs, conducting interviews and learning how to read between the lines and listen between the sighs. From fulfilling the, at first seem impossible to fulfill vacancy, of a garbage planner, to board members of stock-listed companies, he grasped each opportunity. In addition to this Pieter learned how to manage a team, develop international business and acquired general management skills.

In order to excel, you need to focus.

One thing he learned early on: In order to excel you need to focus. In 1997 he worked on his first Group Treasurer search assignment and was impressed by this specific job. As he says: “Treasurers are there where important decisions are taken, close to the board, and thus can have an impact. The field constantly evolves and is, for many laymen, considered very complex”. Learning all about Treasury enabled Pieter to effectively connect various stakeholders: candidates, hiring managers and internal recruiters.

Building bridges and making matches is what drives him.

Nearing the age of 40, he noticed a change, the managerial side had taken up all of his time and he missed recruitment assignments. Back to the core is what he wanted, he used his entrepreneurial skills and extensive network to start his own company. It allowed him to offer recruitment in his own unique way, with integrity, resourcefulness and carefully nurtured relationships.

With strength, knowledge and demonstration of trust, he guides his team and the assignments he takes on. Treasurer Search naturally grew to the leading Treasury recruiter in the Netherlands with a professional and diverse team of consultants and supporting staff.  Nowadays Pieter is the driving force, the mentor of the team and regularly takes on recruitment assignments as well.

The need to stay on top of market developments, requirements in the Treasury trade and his natural curiosity resulted in taking on various responsibilities in the Treasury community. As one of the founders and ambassadors of treasuryXL he regularly contributes with Blogs and moderates Webinars. At the Vrije Universiteit, he is a member of the Management Board of the post-graduate programme Executive Treasury & Corporate Finance and a guest lecturer at the minor treasury management programme of the University of Applied Sciences in Utrecht.
