Add Value is expanding

New partner Erwin Jacquemyns joins the team.

Add Value, professionals in executive search & selection, assessments and human capital development, has been a strong supplier of services in executive recruitment, assessment and human capital development services for nearly 15 years.  The office has clients in a wide number of sectors, who are all leaders in their field.

Add Value can look back on a strong 2013 and expects further growth in specific sections of the recruitment market.

This is why the office has taken on Erwin Jacquemyns (44), employment and organisation psychologist (studies at KU Leuven) and marketer (studies at Vlerick Business School). Erwin has over 15 years' experience in business development, management and organisation. For the past eight years he has worked as a Business Unit Manager at Mediafin, the publisher of De Tijd and L'Echo newspapers.

Philip Rosseel, Partner: "Add Value is constantly focusing on building added value for the candidate and client.

For us it's important to meet candidates’ needs and offer specific solutions. Candidates appreciate our dedication and enthusiasm in the entire recruitment or assessment process, and we always pay close attention to both the candidate's questions and the client's questions.

Developing people is key, mapping out this aspect well and translating it into clear mutual expectations provides solutions which are sustainable for our clients. Our new partner Erwin will also take this approach."

Stefaan De Clercq, Partner: "In our sector it's the same as everywhere else: you can only grow in a stagnant market by being innovative. We do this by approaching niches where there is growth and refining our expertise in them so that we can work for the strongest players in these sectors. In any case, our strength is not in high volumes, but in work with a tailor-made approach; this meant that we suffered less from the crisis than players who focus on volume. In past years we've grown mainly in the real estate, life sciences, industry and legal sectors. But all this could change tomorrow, we're constantly keeping our finger on the pulse in various markets."
