Edward van den Boorn 

Partner Executive Search - Technology, Digital & Energy
Managing Partner

Edward started his career within a number of innovative start-ups in the FMCG/Retail and international Telecommunications. He entered international executive search more than 25 years ago. He specialized in the liberalizing Information Technology & Telecommunications market and contributed to the growth and staffing of BtC and BtB companies. Over the last 15 years, Edward has broadened and deepened his executive search knowledge and experience within the public-private domain, the 'energy ecosystem' in particular. His clients manage the energy infrastructure and offer innovative technological solutions. Innovation, smart 'smart' networks, CSR/sustainability, new energy sources, platform solutions/online and impact investment are central concepts.


Edward fulfills non-executive, director and senior management executive searches for organizations across the board and management team. He advises his clients based on their mission, vision and strategy and enjoys making the complex and situationally determined translation that can make executive search so special. He made a substantial contribution to appointing top women to the boards and management of his clients.


Edward studied Political Science at Radboud University in Nijmegen. He specialized in Labor & Organization from an economic, philosophical, legal and social scientific perspective. During his studies he was co-founder and, among other things, Secretary of 'Areapogos', the student association for Political Science and Administrative & Policy Sciences. In 2008, Edward co-founded an annual culinary, artistic and musical festival. He is currently chairman of the organizing Foundation Board.


Edward joined Capita Selecta Executive Search as a Partner in 2019. A year later, he accepted the role as Managing Partner of the firm.
