Kennedy Executive Search & Outplacement Strengthens its European Presence with a New Office in Amsterdam

Amsterdam’s economy-on-the-rise makes it a perfect home for the latest office of Kennedy Executive Search & Outplacement.

Amsterdam, Netherlands – Kennedy Executive Search & Outplacement, a Partner network of independent HR consulting firms, strengthens its presence in Europe with its newest office in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. With Lens & Partners joining, Kennedy Executive is able to service clients all over Europe from its 5 European offices in Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Milan, Paris and Prague. Kennedy Executive, under the leadership of Jorg Stegemann, an industry veteran, takes a new and distinct approach to executive search. The company offers “360 career management”, from retained executive search, to coaching during the integration period, and finally outplacement. This enables Kennedy Executive Search & Outplacement to provide a seamless integration for placements and further cement cohesion between executives and the teams they are moving into management.

Jorg Stegemann, Managing Director of Kennedy Executive, has had many years of experience not only managing firms, but also as a thought leader in the retained executive search industry. Stegemann routinely contributes to news programs such as BBC Capital or magazines like Forbes. His honest and direct appraisals have made him a highly quotable figure in business news. His excitement about the move to Amsterdam has a great deal to do with the change in economics at both the macro and micro level for this European region.

“Amsterdam successfully managed to leave its recession behind,” says Stegemann. “The historic centers are being revitalized, home prices are rising, and major firms have either head or hub offices in Amsterdam now — Nike, Philips, and soon Chanel are all global brands making their home in Amsterdam. Executive search firms go where executives are needed, and right now that’s Amsterdam.”

As the firm finds its activities in Amsterdam, companies and potential executive placements will have a real partner in this retained executive search firm. “The approach Lens & Partners has to executive search, the quality they provide towards their customers and candidates alike and the energy of the team are pretty much aligned with the existing team in Frankfurt, Milan, Paris and Prague which gives me confidence in a mutually beneficial Partnership,” says Jorg Stegemann. Not only does Kennedy Executive provide high quality executive talent, but it also provides key transition ingredients to making the integration a success. Up to 40% of all hired executives will not stay in their position (source: Heidrick & Struggles). This is exactly why Kennedy Executive maintains a full coaching program for all of the executives who are engaged through their service. The program has been developed by a certified coach and has made Kennedy Executive a rising star in the industry. And as just one critical piece of a Partner network of executive retained search boutique firms companies, Amsterdam-based firms now have the opportunities to hire not only the best executives for their firm, but also to fall back upon the domain depth of this network for 360 solutions.
