'The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once.' - Albert Einstein - 


Edward van den Boorn 

Managing Partner & Partner Executive Search - Technology, Energy & Infrastructure

Edward has been active in (international) executive search for 25 years. He advises his clients based on their mission, vision and strategy and particularly enjoys making the complex and situationally determined translation that makes executive search so special.


In the current era (‘zeitgeist’), the concepts of (sustainable) ‘leadership’, ‘responsibility’ and ‘wisdom’ are guiding principles for him. Given that many of his clients are active at the interface of the public, private and political domain, social stakeholder management is central to his clientele. Classic and modern visions of people, organization, society and leadership are therefore reviewed. Edward is proud of his contribution to the number of successful appointments of top women to the boards and supervisory boards of his clients.


Edward studied Political Science at the Radboud University in Nijmegen. He specialized in Management Sciences, i.e. the disciplines of Labour Relations, Labour Law, Socio-economic Development within European Welfare States, Political Theory and Philosophy of Science.


During his studies he was co-founder and Secretary of 'Areapogos', the student association for Political Science and Public Administration & Policy Sciences. He held various administrative roles.


Edward started at Capita Selecta in February 2019 as Partner Executive Search. A year later he also accepted the role as Managing Partner of the firm.
