IRVINE, California, February 15, 2017 – McDermott & Bull, the 29th largest executive search firm in the Americas and the fastest-growing firm on the Hunt Scanlon Top 50 Recruiters list, announced today the formation of McDermott & Bull Europe B.V. and the acquisition of Amsterdam-based Interconsultants Executive Search.
Rod McDermott, CEO and Co-Founder of McDermott & Bull, worked in concert with Milo Zegerius and Norbert Meijer, Partners at Interconsultants Executive Search, to make this acquisition a reality.
The strength of Interconsultants Executive Search lies in its well-established executive team and strong presence in The Netherlands. Zegerius and Meijer will lead McDermott & Bull Europe on a day-to-day basis and work closely with McDermott in building the company and the brand by establishing more practice areas and growing the overall business.
“We are thrilled about this new venture with Interconsultants Executive Search, which will allow McDermott & Bull to expand its presence outside of the Americas,” said McDermott. “The formation of McDermott & Bull Europe will bolster our access to international insights and expertise, and position our firm as a true global player in the world of executive search.”
“Today’s announcement is a very exciting step for our team at Interconsultants Executive Search,” said Zegerius. “With feet on the ground in both North America and Europe, our firms will have worldwide visibility into top talent for our clients, which will allow us to make introductions to clients in North America with European operations and clients in The Netherlands with North American operations.” Meijer added, “With our firms’ combined experience, resources, and best practices, this collaboration will surely benefit our clients in placing top leaders within their organizations.”
Interconsultants Executive Search was founded by Jetse Reijenga in 1984 and has completed hundreds of search assignments for leading European and global clients including Ricoh, Avery Dennison, Samsung, and Tech Data. Reijenga plans to stay involved with McDermott & Bull Europe as a consultant and business development advisor.
