Our senior team

What our clients say

  • “We hired CFI because of its focus and track record of executing transactions in the HR services segment. They did a great job finding an excellent company for KP&T and Staatvast to partner with.”

    Mr Gijs Botman, partner at Mentha Capital on the exit of KP&T and Staatvast to Egeria Investments

  • “I am delighted that Trinamics was invested in by a long-term financial partner. This also created a fantastic opportunity for senior management. Roland and I are convinced that this combination will help Trinamics continue to flourish. My thanks go out to the team of CFI for their advice and support throughout. Their expertise and commitment to the HR Services sector helped to ensure a smooth process and an excellent outcome for all parties.”

    Mr Ward Gersen, owner and co-founder of Trinamics on its sale to a Dutch family investment office

  • “CFI Brazil’s local knowledge and extensive Business Services Sector expertise were fundamental for us to work together. In fact, the two transactions in which they acted as the sell-side advisors to other Companies,  gave us confidence to hire them for other opportunities related to our core business.”
