Diversity is good for business

Wes challenges the traditional recruitment industry. When identifying the leaders of tomorrow, we can't use yesterday's way of working. New knowledge, tools, and methods are needed. Above all, a will to create tangible change is required. Since 2011, we have recruited more than 1,200 leaders through our innovative way of working.

We make a noticeable difference

  • We have recruited more than 1,200 leaders into new senior management and board positions, of which 75% are women and 35% have an international background.
  • With our innovative Executive Search method, we have helped hundreds of companies and organizations improve diversity in their management and boards.
  • We are constantly working to expand our large network of the market's strongest leaders who are ready to make a difference, from both large companies and the growth arena.
  • We have helped over 100 companies recruit their first ever female CEO, CFO or board member.

The composition of the candidate pool matters

Did you know that 80% of all candidates presented by top recruitment agencies today are male and only 20% are female (on average)? With Wes, it’s the opposite.






Diversity in leadership increases profitability

A modern leadership, characterized by greater diversity in management teams and on executive boards creates better business advantages and profitability. Wes specializes in management, executive, and board recruitment with a focus on diversity and inclusion. We know how and where to find the absolute best leaders, a starting point that characterizes all our services and the way we work.

Our clients

Wes works with clients in the private, public, and non-profit sectors. We also work across many different industries. Our clients include established medium to large companies, entrepreneurial companies in the tech and growth arena, but also several investment and venture capital companies. In every recruitment process we have carried out, the goal has been the same — to find the right person for the job.
