“I earned my spurs at two international recruitment and search agencies before setting out on my own. What fascinates me about our business – well, many things of course – but if I had to name one, it would be finding out what makes someone tick in life. Rather odd, isn’t it: that money is rarely the thing that keeps people going in their work. A sense of meaning - far more important."

"Outside the office I’m interested in keeping fit; a bit of a health freak, really. I play quite a few sports – of which I practice running most consistently. Married, yes, and with great children, too.”

Bart Heerdink

“My main search area at Lens is the healthcare industry. Executive search is a trade you discover rather than acquire through education: in my case, it was the project quartermaster role I often filled in my earlier career. In design, in architecture and e-culture, I was always in search of specific capacities to fill for the projects and programmes I developed. Today, judging someone’s aptitude for a given position is second nature to me. “

“I find that plain old eagerness is a great tell-tale sign. It’s simple and straightforward: if the prospect of a job excites you, you’re likely to do well at it.”

“Though I’m a real city boy, I do greatly enjoy gardening in my spare time. I also volunteer at the animal rescue.”

"My main search area at Lens is the healthcare industry. It’s a really nice challenge to approach the right candidate and to help them make a new step in their career."

"I enjoy keeping a healthy, friendly and productive work environment, the people we invite to our office are facing important changes in their life. I like to make them feel at home."

"I’m a real people person myself, so my job at Lens is a perfect fit. My spare time I often meet friends and family and enjoy nature by making cycling trips around Europe."
