Quadrum strengthens its team with three experienced professionals
Almelo, 6 July 2023 - Since its establishment in 2012, Quadrum Capital has grown rapidly. Over the past 10 years, Quadrum has built a solid track-record with almost 1bn of committed assets under management and is characterised by its individual approach, entrepreneurship and high commitment. Quadrum stands out with a constituency of over 250 entrepreneurs and family offices, who bring a large network with them.
As a company, it is important to grow in phases, with the right balance between entrepreneurship and professionalism. This does not only apply to our associates but equally to Quadrum.
Quadrum operates from the region with its own signature and it considers itself an entrepreneurial investor. This approach and approach is in our DNA, in our culture, and we want to safeguard that. In that context, we are very pleased to strengthen the Investment Team, which currently consists of 15 professionals, by three people.
With the arrival of Dirk Rens, Mariëlle Ansems and Bas de Jong, we are strengthening the base, the foundation of Quadrum to be able to continue to build continuity and grow. All three professionals bring valuable knowledge, experience and expertise that will add to the next phase of growth in which Quadrum is developing.
Dirk Rens - Operating Partner
Dirk Rens will start as Operating Partner at Quadrum Capital from 1 September. Among other experiences, Dirk held an executive position at OC&C Strategy Consultants as a Partner for 20 years. Dirk has been involved in various Quadrum portfolio companies for an extended period on an operational level and has been part of the Quadrum Advisory Board since 2020.
Dirk Rens, adds:"It is with great enthusiasm that I choose Quadrum Capital. I have been involved in Quadrum's team since December 2020, originally as a member of the Advisory Board of QIF III. My involvement quickly grew, giving me the opportunity to work with some portfolio companies as an external advisor. What particularly appeals to me is the entrepreneurial and down-to-earth nature that both the boards and the team at Quadrum have in common. The ability to take risks and see new opportunities, combined with a pragmatic approach, is something I admire and gladly embrace. I look forward to making my contribution as Operating Partner to the successful development of the portfolio companies and thus to the success of Quadrum Capital."
