"Making an impact with curiosity and outside-the-box thinking"

Whyz & Edwin

What makes some companies more successful than others? And why do some professionals build successful careers while others do not? These are some of the recurring questions that Edwin has been working on throughout his career. As an HR expert, he gained experience in industries such as government, pharmacy and insurance. He analysed businesses with the goal of optimising them from the inside out. But sufficient pace was often lacking. Based on his current role in executive search, he is able to make the aspired structural impact by connecting the right people.

According to Edwin, the search for suitable candidates is about much more than work experience in a certain industry, organisation or professional knowledge. He has learned that the most surprising and outside-the-box solutions can be the most successful. Edwin enjoys the space Whyz gives him to be entrepreneurial. It energises him to challenge principals with the question whether they have the right people on board in order to offer their clients a continued added value. Edwin mostly serves clients in the financial services as well as in the utilities industry. Sustainability plays a major role especially in the latter sector and Edwin is happy to contribute in that regard.
