Erik Kaufman (CFO & partner Luscii | a digital healthcare platform): “Ik werk al jaren samen met LIME. De mensen van LIME maken voor mij het verschil. Zij begrijpen mij bijna blindelings. Zij hebben een uiterst goed gevoel voor het juist inschatten van de ‘cultural fit’. Bovendien bewijzen ze keer op keer dat ze de markt van finance professionals – zowel voor vast als interim - kennen en goed weten wie in de markt is voor een nieuwe uitdaging. Mijn ervaring is dat de kans op een succesvolle plaatsing via LIME veel groter is dan via andere executive search bureaus”.
With the people of LIME you can proceed quickly, says Ron van
Laar, CFO at Dynniq, a dynamic, high tech and innovative company that offers
integrated mobility and energy solutions worldwide. They know our wishes and
manage to convert them into the right profile fast and effectively. A major plus
of LIME is that they only provide candidates who really fit in here. This
applies to permanent as well as temporary positions. Due to the fact that they
know the private equity world as well as the finance discipline well, they are capable
of sensing exactly what we need. And the quality of the finance professionals
they have brought to us proves this.
What I also find very important is that these people – without exception – say they are happy in their job. I my view, this proves that they really offer quality and prevent these ‘good’ people from departing again. After all, a successful finance organisation isn’t built on job hoppers! I will definitely continue to use LIME in the future and can, in view of my many years’ positive experience, keep on trusting them with peace of mind.
Gerard Daniëls (CFO C&A Benelux): “My experiences with LIME are
recent. I have only known them since 2015. In 2015 I was looking for a new
assignment in what was then a tight market for interim managers. My network advised
me to contact LIME. I started talking with them and what was a positive
surprise is that they invested a lot of time in really getting to know each other. This resulted in pleasant
contact, followed by the option of – where appropriate – proceeding quickly. And
so it happened. When C&A asked LIME for an interim manager they could respond
very quickly. After all, they knew me and my requirements well, but they also
knew C&A well. They had a good image of what C&A wants and expects and
they could also tell me exactly what I could expect. In addition, they could
estimate that C&A and I would click.
The fact that this position as interim manager led to a permanent appointment after six months and my appointment as CFO C&A Benelux, underlines the quality of LIME’s service as interim management mediator. Due to my positive experiences with LIME, I would highly recommend LIME to any interim manager and finance professional”.
Olivier Bisserier (CFO Booking.com): “I have now been
cooperating satisfactorily with LIME search&connection for almost a decade.
From the start they helped me build up a finance team at Booking.com that
doesn’t only have the required skills to support day-to-day business, they also
helped me build a team that is perfectly capable of contributing to an extremely
rapidly developing, worldwide operating and demanding organisation.
LIME distinguishes itself from other agencies because they first want to understand exactly what is required: What type of company are we? What is the organisational culture like? Which set of skills is exactly required? But also: can the candidate handle the rapid growth of the organisation so we don’t have to replace him/her in two years? They want to be in my shoes before they introduce candidates. And they quickly succeed time and time again! They only introduce candidates to us of whom they are almost sure that we will also recruit them. With this they ensure that we only have to interview candidates with a major chance of recruitment. In the meantime, LIME has built up a new track record with us. And we will definitely continue to work with them because they help Booking.com with the development of our organisation.
