Director Interim Solutions

Are you a director who is ready for the next step in your career and do you have experience in interim solutions? We are an ambitious and successful team with one goal: becoming thé international Executive Search and Interim Solutions bureau in the digital world.

Newpeople has been a thought leader when it comes to digital leadership for over 16 years. Using our executive search and interim solutions services, we work for organisations that are changing from ‘old to new’ and that are in different phases of digital transformation. We also work for ‘pure players’ that started out digitally and that have growth as a core point of focus (start-ups, scale-ups and grown-ups). Over the past 16 years, using our Interim Solutions service, we have built up a community of interim managers within the digital domain: specialists, managers, directors and C-level interim managers like CEOs, CCOs, CMOs, CDOs, COOs, CPTOs and CIOs.

We are here to drive change by humanizing digital transformation and growth for leaders in Europe.

We inspire our clients to change their outlook and to build a sustainable future together. We do this by defining the different phases of digital maturity and by matching these to the right kind of leadership and to the relevant teams. We have developed a model of leadership for this. We work for great organisations that have digital transformation or digital growth as a core point of focus such as but not limited to: Swapfiets, Booking, Ballast Nedam, Ring, MyWheels, Egeria, TakeAway, Nordian Capital, Intergamma, Felyx, KPN and Catawiki. 

We are the proud founders of, amongst other things, the Digital Transformers Awards, Online Tuesday and the Newpeople Executive Study Tour to, for example, Silicon Valley, China, Israel, Japan and Korea. In this way we unite knowledge so that we are always aware of trends and developments in the market.
