We celebrate 12 years Treasurer Search!
For many December is the month to look back and forward, for us it is November. That is when we celebrate our birthday, our 12th! No year is the same but we can say this was an exceptional one. We cannot imagine a rollercoaster going faster, steeper or higher. But that’s also what we thought last year. Let me describe you our year.
Starting with the most important and luckily stable part of Treasurer Search: the Team! Without hiring we got another mother in our team, reminding us all what’s most important in life. We had our newly acquired office space renovated and used it, regretfully only part-time. Even our postponed housewarming had to be postponed. If all goes well, we will welcome a new and extra consultant shortly and also start using our new satellite office in Utrecht.
From a market perspective, 2021 had two faces. The first half we hoped we would reach our already conservative goals. The second half is excellent, a personal best over a whole calendar year is still possible! Both interim management as well as permanent placement is growing, interim management quicker. An increasing number of clients appreciate our combination of quality, speed and fair pricing. In our international activities both Belgium and Luxembourg took a more prominent place. I hope next year we can inform you about a more structured international market approach.
Next to solidifying and growing our market presence, we were able to invest in improvements. The Treasurer Test stands out in this. I have great hope for increased usage and match quality. In 2021 we also completely renewed our advisory board. They already brought great value, we will intensify our cooperation in 2022. We also keep working on improving our recruitment skills with the help of our reference surveys, in order to help our clients and candidates in the best way possible. Shortly we will freshen up our Big5 expertise. And last but not least, we were able to proactively and reactively learn in webinars and classes and are especially grateful to our friends of the VU, HU, treasuryXL and Francois Masquelier.
Let me finish with the remark you know of me: too many plans and opportunities! Not enough time! But that is the way it should be. And with asking you to be careful. Covid-19 is still out there and many suffered. Be kind to each other and do what you can.
Now let’s prepare for the holiday season!
