Founder Maarten Frowein has travelled the world. His business trips took him to Europe, Africa, China and Brazil. On these journeys, he met many remarkable people with an inspiring ‘can do’ mentality. It is this unorthodox and open mind-set, that Maarten can relate to. And it is this mentality that he looks for nowadays, in his interviews with candidates. People who are aware of their competency, who will do everything within their power to realise their personal dreams.

Maarten: “After studying Economics at the University of Amsterdam, I completed an internship at Merlin, a shipbroking company in Brazil. It was a personal game changer. Here, I realised I worked in the right business. This epiphany was the start of a career with various commercial positions in Trading, Banking and Shipping. Nowadays, I assist others in pursuing a career in the industry that I know and love so much.”

 “My focus is on international people working for international (family) businesses. Creating connections and building relationships is what drives me. Adding value through developing new perspectives, bringing positive energy and unorthodox viewpoints. Providing smart solutions based on a personal approach and quick decision making. Reliable, transparent and open minded is my preferred way of working.”

“I aim to inspire and connect people in an industry that I understand and am deeply passionate about.”
