With great pleasure and satisfaction, he studies the developments in various markets and advises and guides clients, successfully making unique connections between organizations and people. Important themes within his portfolio are: situational and best fitting leadership and optimization of the organizational structure. Examples of market-related themes are: sustainability, digitization, strategy-to-execution, innovation-to-cash, BtB marketing and supply chain optimization.


According to Arnold, Executive Search has increasingly developed itself into a creative search process. Once a detailed and thorough intake with the client has taken place, based on expertise and intuition, Capita Selecta perfectly knows how to find and present talented professionals who truly match.


Thanks to his network of clients and candidates, he knows how to successfully fill critical and challenging management vacancies in his markets. This makes him a reliable and inspiring sparring partner; not only during search procedures, but also in the follow-up processes. In this latter phase, he remains in close contact with both parties and intervenes if necessary. Arnold has well developed analytical and critical skills and has a sharp mind. He combines these qualities with tenacity and determination and a particularly good memory. He is happy to deliver a meaningful contribution in his services towards both clients and candidates by providing organizations and professionals with insights from different angles and opportunities that were not considered before.

Arnold studied at Wageningen University with majors in Animal Sciences, Industrial Marketing, Business Administration and International Relations.

He started at Capita Selecta in 1995 and has been a Partner since 2006. Arnold is married and the father of two daughters. He rows fanatically and has a great passion for Southern Africa.
