Remco Abeln is a Managing Director in our Amsterdam office specialising in the recruitment of experienced legal counsel, general counsel, attorneys, privacy officers, contracts managers and compliance professionals for both interim and permanent roles in in-house legal departments and law firms.
Remco lives in Oude Wetering with his wife, Laura, daughter and their dog. He loves to be on the water, both recreationally sailing with his family as well as regatta sailing with friends. He also enjoys running or going for walks with his dog. Remco is fluent in both Dutch and English.
In 1996, Remco began his career as a recruiter, identifying candidates for a variety of positions and companies across multiple industries. Since 2001, however, his focus has solely been on the recruitment of legal counsel. Together with his longstanding business partner Nick Spenkelink, he set up and successfully grew two legal interim and search firms before joining Major, Lindsey & Africa in 2018.
”Being curious and having real interest in people: this is the base for every fulfilment of interim positions and permanent assignments. My broad experience allows me to think out of the box. Obviously every single placement feels great, and the satisfaction is even higher when I am able to surprise the candidate and or client with unexpected and tailored solutions.”
