Wilko Grievink Wilko was born in Aalten, The Netherlands, in a family of bakers, farmers, suppliers of bakery equipment and catering entrepreneurs. It is not surprising that Wilko ended up at an agriculture and food company at the age of 23. After 13 years, he started an investment company for SMEs in Agriculture, Food and FMCG with two other entrepreneurs. After 7 years, Wilko leaves and joins a headhunting agency because he has this persistent curiosity in talent.
1,5 years later, Wilko is amazed by the lack of true interest in people and their needs in the world of executive search, and he starts to feel unchallenged in his job. He decides he must start his own executive search agency which will be totally dedicated to the agricultural business and that will strive for true, personal attention and care for the people he will work with.
