Jaco Erasmus is Partner and Board Member representing N2Growth EMEAA. Headquartered in the Benelux, he oversees N2Growth's locations across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. Jaco began his career as a clinical psychologist in private practice before gravitating into management consulting, where he spent time with Capgemini Ernst & Young.

Before joining N2Growth, Jaco spent almost seven years as Managing Partner of an executive search firm. He holds an MBA in Strategic Management and Innovation from the University of Tilburg and a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology. Jaco was born and raised in South Africa, a country known for its wide range of diversity, large scale culture changes, successful transformations, and the ability to build a new generation of courageous leaders. Its multicultural context has significantly formed his vision and ability to work with and bring about the best in (future) leaders of various cultural, educational, and professional backgrounds.

The combination of Psychology and Management Consulting ultimately culminated in a career in Retained Search and Executive Interim Management. After several years in Executive Search, he founded a boutique Executive Search and Interim Management company, driven by clients' need for more transparency and efficiency of the search process and client involvement during the search process.

Jaco is a seasoned professional, helping clients attract exceptionally talented senior management to create a unique and sustainable competitive advantage. He also specializes in providing experienced interim executive solutions to manage transitions, MBOs, IPOs, mergers and acquisitions, and large and complex change within organizations. His focus often lies on the search and mediation of complex and (politically) sensitive Executive Search assignments.

Jaco is a trusted advisor to many companies with its Global headquarters or regional offices in the Netherlands. These companies are active in Financial Services, Professional Services, Industry, healthcare, and ever so often large international Family Owned businesses. His young and entrepreneurial company has created an extensive network of new-generation managers and respected executives. He likes working with authentic personalities, people who can inspire, energize and improve companies' competitiveness, products, or service offerings. Jaco furthermore has a particular interest in Corporate Governance, Board Dynamics, and Supervisory Boards.
