PRESS RELEASE: Seuss Recruitment Expands with Purchase of EME Medical

AMSTERDAM, 1 February, 2017: Seuss Recruitment announced on Wednesday that the company had acquired Netherlands-based EME Medical.

The acquisition will merge EME Medical with Seuss Recruitment BV. EME Medical co-founder Eva van Rooijen joins the Seuss team as Director of Recruitment.

“When you see an opportunity like this, you have to take it,” said Seuss Recruitment CEO Sabine Hutchison. “This is the perfect merger in many ways, I think even an online dating service would have fixed us up together,” Hutchison added.

“In addition to our shared business values and ethics, Seuss Recruitment and EME align perfectly with our business focuses. We will continue to be growing our recruitment, RPO and executive search capabilities,” she said.

Van Rooijen views recruitment from a broad perspective and has provided her expertise to pharma, biotech and medical-device professionals and companies alike.

Those values align perfectly with the Seuss approach to business, which has always been to be “the non-recruitment recruiters” who treat clients and candidates as people, not numbers. Seuss Recruitment works to place “rock stars” not merely employees who meet their client’s criteria, according to Hutchison.

In recent months, Seuss Recruitment and EME Medical worked on recruitment and staffing projects together where they had the opportunity to get to know one each other professionally and personally.

“I was so glad to discover that Seuss shared the same vision for the future as I do, to improve the life-science recruitment industry,” said van Rooijen.

The move strengthens and broadens Seuss Recruitment’s position in life-sciences recruiting. The company is known for its work in pharma and biotech – on both the executive and technical levels – while EME Medical’s strengths have been in the medical device industry and biotech areas. The acquisition also brings EME Medical’s 150,000-plus Benelux area network into the Seuss Recruitment fold.

Further, Seuss Recruitment has dramatically grown its recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) services in the last year. Bringing the EME Medical team onboard will further give Seuss Recruitment a boost to their RPO capabilities.

Seuss Recruitment places professionals throughout the EU, and North America, with forward-thinking pharma and biotech companies using the “ancient art of match-making with a modern twist.” The company offers a diverse range of recruitment services, custom tailoring solutions for the various levels and phases of recruiting, such as executive recruitment, “rent-a-recruiter”, recruiting for large-scale projects, and pre-employment screening.
