In 2004 Marc followed a post-academic Mediation training program at the University of Amsterdam and became a registered Mediator in 2006. With a natural interest in human and social behavior, he became more and more passionate about working in a business focused on people.
In 2006 Marc joined an Executive Search firm in the Netherlands, where he successfully recruited for senior positions at different global companies and start-ups. Looking for a new adventure abroad in 2008, he co-founded Wise&Miller Executive Search in Dubai. Since 2012 Wise&Miller is part of ENEX, a Global Executive Search Network, with offices in over 40 countries.
Marc’s experience of more than a decade on retained senior assignments in the Middle East and Africa regions, resulted in an extensive global network of long-standing clients and candidates. Marc also established strong partnerships with top business schools like London Business School and INSEAD and is a frequent speaker at networking events and forums.
Marc’s executive search work during the last 15 years and the related intense interactions with candidates naturally progressed into coaching many of those with their career decisions. In the beginning of 2018 Marc completed the MMS coaching program in Dubai and became a certified MMS Coach.
