Since it was established in 1996, EuroDev has been the preferred business development partner of more than 250 North American businesses. Today, our workforce consists of more than 120 highly skilled, multilingual professionals committed to our clients’ success—and to the EuroDev vision
The EuroDev story
When EuroDev was founded in the Netherlands 20 years ago, our focus was primarily on sales development. Over the years, we’ve worked closely with clients to develop a unique business development model for European expansion and, in the process, gained expertise in a wide variety of sectors, including industrial, retail and health care.
The establishment of a second office in 2000—this time, in France—gave EuroDev clients even greater access to our pan-European network of contacts and resources. That same year, we set up an HR division, which also gave them access to some of Europe’s most sought-after talent, and to the resources they needed to manage European workforces in full compliance with local laws and regulations. Five years later, we expanded our portfolio by creating a mergers and acquisitions division, providing yet another way for clients to expand their European presence.
We opened the EuroDev Center—home to more than 53 North American companies—in 2010. This state-of-the-art building is centrally located in the eastern Netherlands’ Almelo municipality, and includes office space equipped with the latest IT infrastructure as well as warehousing and logistics facilities. Just 20 minutes from the German border and close to four major European airports, the EuroDev Center makes it easy for tenants to connect with European vendors, OEMs and end-users.
Today, we continue to seek new avenues for growth and ever-more innovative ways to help clients to achieve their goals.
The EuroDev team
EuroDev is led, staffed and advised by individuals who are committed to our core values and our clients’ success. Each brings a unique educational background and life experience that complements the group as a whole.
What does this mean for clients? In a word, access. No matter who your point of contact is, you’re always able to leverage the knowledge of our entire ecosystem.
EuroDev’s staff members are well-educated and multilingual, and experienced in a wide variety of fields. Most individuals have worked or studied abroad, and all bring unwavering commitment to client satisfaction with everything they undertake.
EuroDev is privileged to have access to the wisdom and experience of several notable independent executives and thought-leaders.
Since its inception in 1996, EuroDev has developed constructive relationships with a wide variety of vendors, affiliates and colleagues. We’re grateful for the mutual respect and knowledge-sharing that this global network of contacts affords.
EuroDev ambassadors are people who have helped make EuroDev the success it is today. We’re humbled by their faith and friendship, and consider them honorary members of the EuroDev team.
EuroDev aims to be the European business development partner of choice for mid-sized North American companies.
To achieve this, we pledge to:
- Become and remain a leader in our niche

- Within EuroDev
Information may be shared within EuroDev, including with other EuroDev Services and affiliates. EuroDev affiliates may use the information in a manner consistent with their privacy policies.
- With our clients
The nature of our services demands that we share personal data with our clients. This means that we share cv’s and motivational letters for recruitment purposes, data necessary to fulfill an agreement, or data necessary for direct marketing purposes. Not all of our clients are located within the EU/EEA and, for those outside, appropriate safeguards have been put in place to comply to the GDPR (see also “Transferring data outside the EU/EEA”).

Transferring data outside the EU/EEA
EuroDev may process information related to individuals in the EU/EEA and may transfer that information from the EU/EEA through various compliance mechanisms, including data processing agreements based on the EU/EEA Standard Contractual Clauses.
The United States and other non-EEA countries have different laws on data protection and rules in relation to government access to information. If you are based in the EEA, when your data is moved from your home country to a third country outside the EEA, some of these countries may not have the same data protection safeguards as your home country.
To the extent that EuroDev is deemed to transfer information about you outside the EEA, EuroDev relies separately, alternatively and independently on the following legal bases to transfer your information:
- Standard contractual clauses
The European Commission has adopted standard contractual clauses that provide safeguards for personal data that is transferred outside the EEA. We use these Clauses where possible when transferring personal data outside the EEA including to our affiliates.
- Contractual necessity
By signing an employment contract, a contractual necessity is created to share information with the North-American based customer. As we operate in countries worldwide (including in the United States), we can’t provide our Services without moving your data around the world.
