LONDON – SEPT. 6, 2016 – Bullhorn, the CRM software provider for relationship-driven businesses, has launched a new office in the Netherlands. Based in Amsterdam, the office will support Bullhorn’s existing EMEA operations, and help drive future expansion across other key European markets.
The office is headed by new EMEA Regional Sales Manager, Pieter Duijst. During his 35-year career in software, Duijst has served as CEO of four software companies, and previously worked for Oracle as its Cloud Solutions Sales Manager for Northern Europe.
Speaking of his new role, Duijst comments: “Leading Bullhorn’s EMEA operations is an enormous privilege. I’ve been really impressed by how easily Bullhorn has established relationships with its new European customers – whether they are small start-ups or large international corporations.”
“Our mission at Bullhorn is to completely understand and fulfil the specific CRM needs of companies in each of our target regions. By opening the new Netherlands office, we’re sending a clear and definitive message: we may well think globally, but we act locally”, he adds.
Peter Linas, Bullhorn’s International Managing Director, says: “The Netherlands is not only a key strategic market for us; it’s also a perfect hub in terms of access to Western European as a whole.”
“I’m pleased to report that the initial phase of our EMEA expansion has gone very smoothly – we’ve already seen significant revenue growth in mainland Europe. We aim to build on our influence in the region over the next few years.”
Founded in Boston in 1999, Bullhorn first landed in Europe in 2009 with the launch of its international headquarters in London. In 2015, it opened its Brighton-based international support hub, and also expanded into Asia Pacific with the opening of its Sydney office. The Netherlands office is the latest addition as Bullhorn strives to reach a larger number of customers worldwide.
Linas concludes: “I’m thrilled with the success Pieter and his team have achieved already. Bullhorn’s life on the continent is just getting started!”
