“REPLACED HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL COUNTRY CEO / ENTREPRENEUR WITH MODERN, POTENTIALLY BETTER 2.0 VERSION”

“Richard Vincent was instrumental in replacing a highly successful Country CEO, entrepreneur, who has been for more than a decade a key contributor for the growth and development of the entire company by his thinking and style and personality. Richard Vincent found me a modern, potentially better 2.0 version, a 21st century business leader, a strong business- and people leader through a structured process in which Richard clearly understood my requirements, the business needs and the core competences required to bring that important business to the next level.

Simultaneously we recruited a sales-and marketing director to the Cibes Lift Group also with the support from Richard Vincent. I am very pleased with the two recruitments and how the process was managed both when it comes to speed, number of qualified candidates, the dialogue regarding pros and cons with the candidates and a very relevant and frequent communication with myself.

It definitely helped me to finally take the right decision.”

CEO, Industrial Manufacturing

“BECAUSE ATTRACTING A CFO IS ‘ANOTHER CUP OF TEA’, WE CALLED IN RIVIONT FOR THIS”

“GenDx is a Life Sciences company that works at the intersection of science and commerce. GenDx mainly employs driven scientists. Because attracting a CFO is ‘another cup of tea’, we called in RIVIONT for this. RIVIONT has succeeded in clarifying the question and proposing a number of candidates in a very short period of time. The high degree of service orientation meant that the cooperation and advice were constructive. This meant that we were able to make an offer within a few weeks. We look back on the recruitment process with great satisfaction.”

CHRO, Global Life Sciences

“MY TRUSTED ADVISOR FOR BUSINESS-CRITICAL SENIOR LEADERSHIP HIRING APPOINTMENTS”

“Richard Vincent became my trusted advisor for business critical senior leadership hiring appointments. In weekly meetings we discussed my Asia business needs, priorities, potential candidate profiles, the speed and the sense of urgency in delivery to our business in Singapore and in the Asia region.

Initially I was sceptical about the use psychological assessment tests in the selection of candidates, but Richard has embedded psychometric tests in his structured search process. I learned that the personality and behaviour assessments, provided me with very relevant, critical candidate information prior to meeting and interviewing them. This information enabled me to ask deeper questions on critical topics and in faster and better hiring decision-making aligned to the business culture.

Richard Vincent stands for the quality of his services – the 12 months guarantee, the structured process of delivery across different markets and functions prove to me the high quality of his services.

Business Leaders with an ambitious Asia / global strategy, I strongly recommend the services of Richard Vincent.”

Regional VP, Industrial Chemical

“UNIQUE ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURE – AND CAREER VALUES TESTS”

“As a HR professional, I’ve experienced many assessment tools available in the markets.  The uniqueness of the personality and behavioral assessments is about the report on ‘Ideal organizational culture’ and ‘Career value’, which clearly differentiates this tool from others in the market.

These 2 new perspectives clearly provide the insights for both candidate and company if they can fit each other well on top of the normal communication, personality and leadership style assessment.

This tool can be used for both selection and development purpose. I would highly recommend this tool to a company which strongly believes in ‘right people in the right job makes the difference’.”

Regional SVP HR, Consumer

“THE TRUST AND THE TRANSPARENT WAY OF WORKING MADE THE DIFFERENCE”

“3 Weeks after I met with Richard Vincent, I signed the contract with my new employer. Looking back on that process, it was mainly the trust and the transparent way of working that made the difference. Richard Vincent comes to the core in a pleasant way, is concrete and business-like and constantly takes into account the interests of all parties involved.”

VAT Tax Director, Professional Services

“YOUR CAREER ADVICE HAS HELPED ME TO BETTER UNDERSTAND MYSELF AS A PERSON AND REALIZATION OF MY CAREER DREAMS”

“Richard, I would like to say thanks for your advice and the career profiling of the personality and behavior assessments. It has helped me to better understanding myself as a person and realization of my career dreams. It helped me to secure a position as Managing Director, part of a Singapore listed company”.

Country Managing Director, Industrial Chemical

“I RECOMMEND RICHARD FOR A CONVERSATION ABOUT THE NEXT CAREER MOVE OR THE NEXT STEP FOR THE BUSINESS AS A WHOLE”

“I got to know Richard as a smart and skilled sparring partner for an important step in my career. He quickly saw the potential in me and sketched an ambitious path for me, based on his strategic insights of the market and the location of a specific organization, which really appealed to me.

The interaction during my placement process went very smoothly, with clear agreements made in advance and regular discussions about the next meeting. I would absolutely recommend entering into a conversation with Richard, whether for the next career move or the next step for the business as a whole.”

Director Tax, Professional Services

“I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND RICHARD TO OTHER CANDIDATES BECAUSE OF HIS PROFESSIONALISM AND DEEP UNDERSTANDING OF THE RECRUITMENT PROCESS, THE RECRUITER’S NEEDS, THE CANDIDATE’S STRENGTHS AND HIS MODERN METHODS”

“I had the privilege of working with Richard during a transition in my career. Throughout the process I found Richard to be passionate, insightful, approachable and most of all effective in his dealings. Richard works hard in the background to ensure both the candidate and the client have fruitful interactions.

I found Richard’s methods of sharing useful insights about me, the culture at the new organization and the new role, modern and powerful. His analysis is based on one on one interactions and a state of the art personality test, hence all feedback was customized to me.

Richard is also extremely good at keeping lines of communication open, crystal clear and managing expectations. This openness and clarity helped me in having a series of successful interviews and in signing the first offer with the new employer.

I would highly recommend Richard to other candidates because of his professionalism and deep understanding of the recruitment process, the recruiter’s needs, the candidate’s strengths and his modern methods.”

Global Marketing Director , Consumer

“ENSURING A 100% MATCH BY GETTING TO THE CORE OF CUSTOMER AND CANDIDATE”

“Richard is an amiable calm professional who, through sharp observations and a good personal conversation, manages to get to the core of the customer and candidate, and then initially in my case to ensure a 100% match for myself. He is also involved and interested in the process that follows, which makes Richard the ideal partner for me to now also find people for me.”

Country Managing Director The Netherlands, Industrial Manufacturing

“I WOULD RATE RICHARD AS THE BEST RECRUITER I EVER CAME ACROSS IN MY PROFESSIONAL CAREER”

“Richard Vincent played a vital role in my move from Unilever to my new company. He has many unique qualities that set him apart from other recruiters I have met. I found him to be fully authentic and he earned my trust in our first meeting itself. He provided me great insights into what the hiring organisation was looking for.

What I really appreciated was that he did a de-brief session with me before and after each interview, that immensely helped in my preparations and also kept me informed of my progress. He is very action-oriented and takes fast decisions. The overall hiring process took about a month to complete, that was remarkable indeed.

I would rate Richard as the best recruiter I ever came across in my professional career and would strongly recommend him to any organisation or individual embarking on the hiring process.”

Regional Director Supply Chain Finance, Consumer

“RICHARD THINKS IN THE INTEREST OF BOTH CANDIDATE AND CLIENT”

“I got to know Richard as a very pleasant person who thinks of the interests of both the candidate and his client. Due to his knowledge of human nature, years of experience with placing candidates with clients and the good relationship he has built up with the client, it was possible to act quickly and satisfactorily during the placement process.”
