Our story

Vibe Group was founded in 2011 by Bernd van Baars and Daniël Visser. Since then, our organisation has grown to become a trusted international company, working in three different countries focusing on four IT niche markets.

Vibe group founders

A shared passion and vision and the conviction that it simply could be done better form the basis of the foundation of Vibe Group.

After years of experience in the staffing & consulting sector, Daniël Visser and Bernd van Baars are convinced that it can be done better, smarter, faster and more qualitative. Their shared passion and their vision on the staffing & consulting sector made them decide to start a business together. Vibe Group was founded in 2011. The first niche brand that was launched is Visser & Van Baars.

“Say as you do, and do as you say. That’s a life lesson that I learned at an early age. Growing up in Friesland gives you a pretty level-headed view of life. That level-headedness, hard work and discipline are what helped me get to where I am today.”

“Giving up is not an option for me. We’ll get there one way or the other. Keep pushing until you find a solution, and stay true to your word. Always assume the positive, and trust in people. That’s what I’ve been taught.”
