About Top of Minds Executive Search

Top of Minds Executive Search is a pioneer and market leader in The Netherlands’ executive candidate segment. We succeed by maintaining a key focus on ex-consultants and digital professionals. Because both types of candidates are in high demand in many functional and industry markets, we’ve become the trusted partner for a wide range of clients in The Netherlands. From fintechs to museums, e-commerce scale-ups to multinationals, and consultancies to impact organizations. Since founding in 2008, we’ve exceeded the competition in just ten years. And we owe our ongoing growth and success to our unique business strategy.

Our competitive advantage is our disruptive business model, which combines a strong focus on candidate relationships and our proprietary digital marketing engine. This makes our success well-suited for international roll-out.” – Auke Bijnsdorp, Managing Director at Top of Minds

A business model for the digital era
Wherever we break new ground, our approach disrupts the mid-level executive search market. It’s thanks to our way of working as a hybrid between executive search and digital marketing. Instead of anonymous, ill-suited job profiles, we publish targeted brochures that are visually engaging and in-depth to attract ideal candidates. We guarantee our unique content reaches the right people two ways: through our professional research team, and our proprietary marketing engine. Combined, they ensure we always target the right talent with laser-like precision across all relevant online channels. This dual output combines research and marketing efforts and is a proven, premium process.

Expanding our international team
In our Amsterdam office, our team of forty-five professionals work on local and global assignments. Since we’ve finely-honed and our successful business model, we’re ready to expand internationally, starting with offices in Spain and Germany. Other irons in the fire include the UK, the Nordics, and a pan-European practice. The Managing Partner of Top of Minds Spain joined the company since 2022. And their strategy is twofold: apply the Top of Minds formula to the Spanish market and set up a Research Center of Excellence to service all of our office locations.
