He is regarded as one of the Netherlands’ leading headhunters and is co-founder of AltoPartners, now an international player which according to Business Week ranks as one of the 150 most influential recruitment firms in the world. 

Commenting on Hokke’s appointment, Froom said: “Our team is renowned for our considered approach to executive search and interim management and our in-depth approach to executive assessments and succession pipelines. We are excited about Jean Paul joining us – he will help us add value to our clients in the Netherlands and across Europe.” 

Hokke becomes the firm’s third partner, alongside Froom and Pieter Ysbrandy, another former consultant focused on the financial service sector. He previously served KPMG, Boer & Croon and IG&H.
