Our ambition is to help the healthcare sector make progress in the areas of cooperation, quality and innovation. We see the strengthening of leadership as the key to this. New leadership is desperately needed to shore up the capacity for change in healthcare organisations. For decades, we have been shoring up the healthcare sector in the Netherlands across the board. With the best people and the best solutions. From hospitals and research institutes, to elderly care and youth welfare services. And we are an experienced partner for health insurance companies, branch associations and umbrella organisations.


YESS helps you to find entrepreneurial board members and to fill key positions when you invest in a (new) company or when your organisation is taken over by private equity. We support you in developing a strategic team. This means that your organisation is able to make well-founded decisions about, for example, a restructuring process. And that benefits the growth potential. Our consultants understand that the cooperation with the portfolio company and the private equity firm is crucial for a successful buy & build strategy.

In addition to searching for portfolio companies, we also specialise in attracting investment professionals for private equity firms themselves. We are highly experienced in finding all tiers of professionals, from Associates to Directors and Partners.


A clear, long-term strategy is crucial for family businesses as well as for publicly listed companies. We at YESS have an extensive network of senior professionals with the right skills to devise and execute successful strategies. Our consultants understand the specific culture, professional development needs and changing dynamics of mid-size organisations like no one else. YESS supports you in identifying and attracting best-in-class candidates and evaluating and optimising your team of directors and the management layer beneath that.

"Not: what or who do you need, but: where do you want to go?"

Finance & Technology is a prominent field in every business. The demand for transparency and management information is growing. The use of predictive technologies also continues to gain traction and have an influence on Finance Function. The CFO of today works with perpetual change, spurred on by technologies such as blockchain and the use of big data. YESS will find your future-oriented CFO and the group managers behind him/her. We are active in areas such as Accounting, Reporting and Controlling, but also especially in Strategy & M&A and Business Data & Analytics.


Demands from customers and consumers are constantly changing. And increasingly faster as well. Digitalisation of processes makes these demands more and more personal. For years YESS has been supporting both large and small organisations in finding and connecting best-in-class candidates who shape this digitalisation and make it successful. We have a good network with COO's, CTO'S or Directors in the field of Product & Innovation management. Our track record is not limited to rapidly growing innovative tech companies and 'pure players'. We also know the right people for more traditional companies that are undergoing digital transformation.


When your startup has developed and built a successful business model, then it is time for the crucial follow-up steps: building up and professionalising the management team, optimising business processes and accelerating profitable growth. YESS makes your scale-up happen through a combination of an executive search and leadership development. This enables you to attract entrepreneurial candidates for key positions while at the same time developing your current team with a focus on talent. So that together they will make the difference.
