EuroDev M&A announces the promotion of Gerben Groothuis to Managing Director of the M&A advisory unit. This strategic addition will significantly enhance EuroDev’s ability to assist its North American principals in locating and assessing appropriate acquisition opportunities across the European continent. Gerben will work alongside EuroDev M&A veteran Dirk-Jan Vorgers.
Gerben Groothuis joined EuroDev as a Vice President of the Industrial Unit in 2015, where he assisted US based industrial manufacturing companies in organically growing their business in Europe. Prior to that, Gerben fulfilled a number of senior commercial leadership roles with both technology and outsourced services companies, such as Sensata Technogies (NASDAQ ST; a former division of Texas Instruments), Xsens (now part of ON Semiconductor) and ClientLogic (now part of Acticall Sitel).
Earlier this month Gerben obtained his CM&AA credentials from the Alliance of Merger & Acquisition Advisors (www.amaaonline.com).
