As I know Rik, he is too modest to “advertise” himself and for that reason we asked some of Rik’s clients and principals to say something about him. (By the way, the headline above this text did not come from Rik either, but from an entrepreneur).


Rik (1977) in addition to being a proud- and athletic father, is also the owner and founder of Panthion BV (HR- Career Services) and ViaMensa BV (absenteeism and te-integration). Rik’s career starts some 22 years ago. Rik has spent 12 years with various organizations (profit and nonprofit) as an HR Advisor, HR Business Partner and HR Manager. In 2011, Rik founded Panthion with the ambition to start a leading and distinctive agency with people & organization as a common thread.
