It is with great delight that we announce that Jorn Klaver, who joined Amoria Bond as a trainee recruiter in November 2010, has recently been promoted to Director!
Jorn’s rapid progression through Amoria Bond’s 10-Step career program is impressive, with a promotion and / or major milestone achieved every year:
How did Jorn achieve such rapid progression?
Here’s what Ian Cross, MD and Jorn’s boss throughout his career at Amoria Bond, had to say:
Celebrating Jorn’s promotion to Director is a great way to end 2020 and feels especially special as only a few weeks ago he was celebrating 10 years at Amoria Bond!
When Jorn joined Amoria Bond in Nov 2010, we were based out of a small office on the Amstel in Amsterdam, and he came to us having worked in the Health and Fitness sector.
It was clear Jorn had passion, lots of ambition and that he was destined to have a great career. Even in those early days, Jorn demonstrated great leadership qualities. He has always been excellent at planning and time management (to this day he still follows the same process), proactive in taking responsibility for his results, and selfless in giving up his time to support and train those around him. He quickly developed into a consistent biller with an excellent can-do attitude. Having been promoted twice within his first 12 months at Amoria Bond, another 9 months later he had built a team around him and hit Lead Consultant!
Jorn is ambitious, and he wanted to fast track as quickly as he could, so when the opportunity came up to take a risk and move to Cologne to set up a new office he jumped at the chance!
Jorn has supported the overall growth of the business and built the DE Contract team into a highly successful and engaged team, Jorn is a great coach and mentor, having trained some of Amoria Bonds top performers, and he constantly looks for ways to become the best version of himself, always willing to share knowledge and support growth in others.
On a personal note, I’m proud of Jorn achievements. He was one of my first hires into the Amsterdam team, and it’s been an absolute pleasure to work with him so closely for so long. I’ve watched his journey from Trainee to Director, seen him become a great father to his two wonderful children, and build his dream home in his home town (with an amazing garden shed!)! The journey has been lots of fun, we have travelled all over the world together, shared long train journeys back and forth to Cologne, and enjoyed many meals, beers and laughs on countless lunch clubs. He is a very honest and humble guy who has always been selfless with his time and dedicated to help others progress their lives.
So, what does Jorn himself say is the secret to his success?
