Inspired-Search, a boutique executive search organisation for (senior) professionals in logistics, manufacturing & supply chain, has today announced to expand its activities in Switzerland by opening an office in Geneva.
The Swiss activities will be managed by Jan Paul Olijslager who has 15+ years of experience in the international transport and logistics industry. Jan Paul has worked at 3PL’s offering logistics services to international customers and he has also worked as a supply chain consultant. During this period, he has assisted numerous international companies setting up or restructuring European supply chain operations. Before moving to Switzerland Jan Paul has lived and worked in the Netherlands, the USA, Hungary and South Africa. The new Inspired-Search office will be primarily focused on executive search in Switzerland for senior executive Logistics and Supply Chain positions.
‘We’re extremely pleased with Jan Paul joining Inspired-Search and with the geographical expansion’, say Edwin Tuyn & Oskar Verkamman, directors of Inspired-Search. ‘There are of course numerous international companies who have their European, EMEA or Global head offices in Switzerland and over the past couple of years we have been able to assist quite a few of these companies with the recruitment of new staff. Up till now we managed to do so working out of the Netherlands and although this worked out well we think that with opening our own office in Switzerland we will be able to increase the service level to our international customers and grow our international business.’
‘Our strategy has always been to be very much focussed on the supply chain industry, this makes us unique and is for sure paying off. We now have our own offices in The Netherlands, Singapore and Geneva and it is our ambition to add more offices to our organisation in the near future.
Having Jan Paul on board is a major step forward in our ambition to build an international organisation and to be able to support our global customers. Jan Paul’s international experience and background in Logistics and Supply Chain made him the perfect partner for the Inspired-Group.’
Jan Paul Olijslager adds to this: ‘My experience working for international logistics companies and as consultant supporting international companies setting up warehousing and distribution operations in Europe will be extremely useful and I am looking forward to make use of my knowledge, experience and international network in my new position. I am pleased to join an expanding international executive search firm that already has a strong presence in Europe. The fact that I can team up with Edwin and Oskar who are both highly experienced professionals is of course a great advantage and privilege’.
