A match that works

In 2020, Boer & Croon strengthened itself by acquiring YESS (Executive Search Firm). This combines almost 50 years of experience in executive search within one organisation. Boer & Croon focuses primarily on the healthcare sector. YESS works mainly for private companies and cultural institutions. Together they belong to the absolute top of the European market. Our team is mainly asked to fill executive level positions, such as General Management, Commercial, Operations and Finance. We are also active in HR, Digital, Private Equity and Corporate Finance. What the YESS team and the Boer & Croon team have in common is their pragmatic approach, in which the 'person' is central. With our knowledge of developments within organisations and industries, we are able to quickly find the ideal candidate.

How can we help with senior management?

No company is the same. Every organisation has its own culture and unique challenges for growth and development. In addition, each industrial sector has its own specific characteristics. Through years of experience and knowledge of different sectors, YESS can help fill a senior or middle management position. But we are also in the position to recruit non executive directors.

Medium-sized companies

YESS has an extensive network of professionals at senior management level and the two management layers below. These network of professionals have the necessary competences to set up and execute a successful long-term strategy.

Private equity owned

YESS assists in the selection of entrepreneurial executives and the filling of key management positions when investing in a new company or when the organisation is acquired by Private Equity.

YESS supports the development of a strategic team. This enables management and the investor to make well-informed decisions about the restructuring process that will benefit the growth potential.

Our senior consultants understand that collaboration between the portfolio company and the Private Equity firm is critical to a successful buy & build strategy.


Your start-up has developed and built a successful business model. This brings with it a number of crucial next steps: building and professionalising the management team, optimising the business processes and accelerating profitable sales growth.

YESS will facilitate this up-scaling through a combination of our executive search services and leadership development. Due to our approach you can, on the one hand, attract enterprising candidates for key positions and, on the other hand, develop your current team in a talent-oriented manner. Together they make the difference.
