Honoré Verbeet joins Signium as Partner in Amsterdam, Netherlands

Signium is pleased to announce the addition of a new Partner, Honoré Verbeet, who will be based out of Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Honoré has extensive experience in Executive Search. In over 20 years, he has completed hundreds of searches, both in the Netherlands, as well as in Europe.

He started at Randstad, where he held commercial responsibility for Amsterdam and joined NMC-Nijsse International (now Boyden) in 1992 as a Research Consultant. Between 1995 and 1997 he worked at 2 local Search companies, after which he was asked to rejoin the NMC-Group as a Consultant. From 2002 to 2013 he was Managing Partner and held responsibility for the international cooperation of the group. Next to this managerial role, he built a portfolio of clients in several industries for both local and international companies. After having worked as Chairman of the Selection Committee at the European Foundation for Business Qualification, he joined Signium in 2016.

At Signium, he focuses on the practices where he gathered the most experience over the years: Industrial & Manufacturing, Technology and Professional Services. To become successful in a new role and company, Honoré is convinced that the personality of a candidate is at least as important as his/her education and experience.

Honoré is married and his hobbies are cooking, (classical) music, opera, ballet, reading, travelling and gardening. He holds a Masters in Economics & Social History from the University of Utrecht, The Netherlands. He is fluent in Dutch and English, and has basic proficiency in French and German.
