The Peoplement Team
Peoplement’s team is a solid partnership between Christian Rolin, Anne Borgen and Birgitte Olrik.
Together they base their work on a shared set of values with the aim of ensuring the equality of candidate and client – always delving deeper to find the ideal match.
Peoplement’s three partners have a comprehensive understanding of the recruitment process and deep insights into industry sectors, ensuring a unique flair for promoting dynamic connections between people.
Peoplement’s partners work as a team, guaranteeing a sharp focus on your needs.
Dialogue starts with people looking each other in the eye, understanding and actually caring about the common denominator – and the sweet spot where value is created.
With a versatile CV, heavy in leadership positions, Christian has been involved in and worked with pretty much everything. He is used to turning over every stone in an effort to understand the needs of the company, the manager, and not least, the candidate in order to achieve an efficient and holistic process that is coherent, meaningful and value-adding.
His knack for simply walking in and sitting down with both executives and management team has made Christian a long-standing partner for the companies we work with. What begins with a single candidate often evolves into a strong, years-long business relationship.
Christian approaches the role of recruitment consultant with an open and outward-looking mindset. He always looks his clients and the candidates directly in the eye – true to the Peoplement spirit. Because for Christian it is all about treating everyone as equals.
Christian has the utmost respect for the fundamental human values, and as a Peoplement representative and partner to our clients, he isn’t afraid to ask the tough questions in his efforts to find the right match.
Accustomed to walking the chief executive corridors, Christian’s primary focus is on headhunting for CEO, COO, CIO, CSO, CTO and CFO positions, B2B sales management and leaders at Director and VP level for both international and regional organizations. He is highly experienced in R&D recruitment, with a proven track record of finding people willing to go the extra mile.
Christian also has many years of international experience at management level and as R&D director for global organizations such as Nokia, Schlumberger and Rovsing. His strengths lie within technology, manufacturing, services & consulting, not to mention process industries, and he possesses in-depth understanding of and insight into international business operations.
Honest and straightforward. Anne doesn’t beat around the bush – but goes straight to the heart of the matter. She’s not the type to waste your time. Nor the candidate’s time. In the search for the right match, there’s no avoiding the difficult questions – in the end you’re looking for quality the first time round and not for a new recruitment every four to six months.
Anne is an extraordinary consultant. With many years’ experience working among chief executives, she has a knack for smoothly navigating the confluence between corporate culture, manager and candidate. What seems difficult in the beginning, usually proves worthwhile over time, which is why Anne is often kept on as a trusted advisor by the companies she helps. Those who want to hear the unvarnished truth, who want to push the boundaries and who find that innovative thinking leads to growth.
Anne Borgen has a talent for analyzing a situation to find the right dynamic between manager and candidate – for the benefit of both parties. She always has her human antenna set to the right frequency during conversations and interviews, which enables her to pick up on the essence of the personality profile and understand the candidates at a personal as well as professional level. This also enables her to take the pulse of a company.
As a Peoplement recruitment consultant, Anne takes you a step further – challenging candidates and companies to think outside the box.
Anne has eight years of experience in B2B/B2C marketing as Marketing Manager and Marcoms Manager at BEA Systems (Oracle) as well as at MCI WorldCom UUNet (telco/ISP), which she helped launch in Denmark. Anne has also worked in retail marketing and consumer electronics at FGroup. Later, she pivoted to HR Manager at MACH/Syniverse, with a particular focus on recruitment aimed at supporting management and developing the organization.
In 2010, she turned dream into reality when she became an independent consultant, specializing in recruitment and organizational and leadership development. That firm evolved into Peoplement with a well-proven, team-based search concept centering on the match between manager, candidate and team. Facilitation of searches at specialist, sales and middle-management level within sales/marketing/digital/IT/RD/HR for all types of organizations, from large international corporations to smaller start-ups and growing businesses
Her merits are as high as her experience is strong. Nationally and internationally – if you’re searching for a candidate within Birgitte’s area of expertise, she’ll find the right match for you, regardless of whether you’re looking to fill a position at C-level, VP or senior management level across the entire value chain. This is a well-honed skill, based on the understanding that the difference lies in the details. That is why you will find that Birgitte listens attentively and asks sharp and challenging questions, for instance about company culture and the intersection of skills and behavior.
Make no mistake – this reflective approach is praised by both customers and candidates. Birgitte hates to waste time. Her own time, the customer’s time – and especially the candidate’s time. A good recruitment process is the result of thorough preparation, asking the difficult questions and careful screening at an early stage.
The ultimate goal is good relations, professionalism and high job satisfaction for all parties. When these three aspects meld, recruitment can lead to growth and lasting relationships.
Equality, respect and compassion: these are just some of the values upon which Birgitte Olrik and the entire Peoplement team base their work. Birgitte Olrik doesn’t sell off-the-shelf products. She works with people, establishing professional relations with them – and that is where she finds joy in her work. She is inspired by the nuances and the dynamics that develop when people meet. Birgitte considers herself an ambassador for the customer in a recruitment process, with a sharp eye for creating equality and commitment between candidate and customer.
Birgitte’s professional experience spans nearly 10 years in the medical device and consumer goods/FMCG sectors – in her early career at Coloplast A/S in marketing/branding and, later, in leading positions (Sales/Marketing Director and Country Manager) at L’Oreal and Danone, respectively – as well as five years as Nordic Country Manager for a global French industrial company.
In 2006, Birgitte switched into the executive search sector, holding positions with Korn/Ferry and Stanton Chase, among others. With a strong skill set developed over her long professional career, Birgitte has spent the past 15 years providing recruitment services at both C-level, VP and senior management level within B2C and B2B markets – primarily focusing on profiles in general management, sales/marketing/branding, E-commerce, SCM, finance/economics and HR.
