Exceeding Expectations

Tristan grew up in Groningen but traded the northern part of the country for Utrecht. Personal development and delivering top performances as a team are at the top of his priority list. He doesn’t have to think long about what he enjoys most about his work.

In his role as a research consultant at Maes & Lunau, he comes into contact daily with the crème de la crème of the Dutch leadership. He finds that very inspiring. “We have a very diverse team with different ages, an open culture, and each with its own background. This allows us, as an executive search firm, to make a truly valuable contribution. Engaging in diverse conversations at a leadership level is unpredictable, maintaining a broad perspective. This inspires you to present a wide range, including unconventional candidates, to create the perfect match. Being expertly distinctive, that’s Executive Search for me.”

“By finding distinctive candidates, we can make a significant contribution to both the organization and society.”

Experience across various sectors

Tristan has a broad background. Even during his studies, he was quite active. At that time, he served as an assistant supermarket manager for Albert Heijn, Gall & Gall, and Etos. Additionally, he worked as a professional in the financial world, providing him with broad knowledge of organizations and insights into various sectors.

He now applies that knowledge daily as a research consultant to achieve the perfect match for organizations. And when he’s not working, he enjoys being active on the hockey field.
