Amsterdam, March 5, 2024 – Effective immediately, Pascal Meerwijk will start as Managing Director of Seven Stars, one of the labels of the international HR Tech services provider Circle8Group. Meerwijk will form the Seven Stars management team together with Corianna Geersing (CPO) and Mike Verheijen (CFO). 

Meerwijk spent more than 20 years within the Adecco Group where he was ultimately responsible for several divisions over the past decade. “Pascal fits this label very well in terms of DNA,” said Ineke Kooistra, CEO of Circle8Group. “Seven Stars is a wonderful company with a beautiful culture. At the moment there are still plenty of opportunities to grow further by broadening our scope, also internationally. Pascal has extensive knowledge of IT and sales. Because of his international track record, he is the right man to head our European growth strategy.”

“The passion and drive I feel within Seven Stars really appeals to me,” says Pascal Meerwijk. “This company suits me because I love working with tough, headstrong, ambitious people that are, like me, a bit rebellious and show how things can be done differently. I’m ambitious and always working on new opportunities, new propositions, and new customers. Seven Stars already has a great foundation, and I am looking forward to further expand the ambitions, both nationally and internationally.”
