Vibe Group in 2022, how was our year?

2022 has come to an end. And what a year it has been for Vibe Group! We look back with pride on what has been and look forward to what is to come.

Together we create the future

With a group of 408 Vibers and four IT staffing and consulting niches in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, we matched an IT professional to a temporary or permanent position 2081 times in 2022. That is 2081 IT careers and futures to which we have each been able to contribute with our own strengths and expertise, thanks to our focus!

This is something we obviously intend to do many more times in the coming years. So, if you are a Consultant, Analyst, Engineer or Developer in the field of Data, Software Development, ERP and CRM, Cyber Security or Risk and Compliance, know that in 2023 we are also ready to contribute to your future with our network.

New brand identity

2022 was the year in which we put Vibe Group on the map more clearly as a brand and a group. Our organisation has become increasingly professional in recent years. The new branding makes who we are and what we stand for more visible:

  • Our focus on the Tech market within staffing and consulting; ‘Connecting humanity and technology in the best possible way’.
  • The interrelationship between Vibe Group and the four niche brands Visser & Van Baars, Spilberg, Eswelt, and Tergos .
  • Our attitude: making the impossible possible, wanting to make a difference for IT professionals and organisations, and doing this differently from our competitors.

In autumn 2022, we were introduced to the ‘No-man’- spokesperson of our organisation. As the main character in various campaigns, he made it clear that we distinguish ourselves by daring to say NO. By daring to make choices and therefore choosing not to do some things. So that we can do what we do extremely well. Focus is key and quality always comes before quantity!

We keep growing

This year, with a turnover of around 215 million, we grew a whopping 40% compared to the previous, also successful, year. And this did not go unnoticed! We were ‘FD Gazelle’ for the 5th time! We were also among the Top 250 Growth Companies of the Netherlands for the second year in a row. Due to this growth and looking to the future, we have moved into a larger office space in Düsseldorf in the 2nd half of 2022. And in Antwerp, we are busy with the final preparations for the move to a beautiful new location in the city centre as well.

Ready for our future

Fitting with the continued strong growth, this year was the time for us to further professionalise our organisation to manage further growth even better. With effect from 2023, our new CEO Mennold Leijerzapf will assume the day-to-day management of Vibe Group. In December, we also welcomed Martijn Goudswaard as Managing Director of Vibe Group Netherlands.

It is a privilege to lead this fantastic organisation into its next phase of growth. A phase where our ambitious and talented people, our winning culture and our high-quality niche strategy will continue to make the difference. I am confident that we have a bright future ahead in which we will exploit growth opportunities by opening new offices, developing different niche markets and launching new services. ‘There are no limits to what we can achieve, except the limits we accept in our mind.’ I look forward to creating the future together. – Mennold Leijerzapf
