Nordian has acquired a majority stake in BlueTrail Group B.V.

Wednesday Sep 13, 2023

Nordian is proud to announce that it has acquired a majority stake from its current shareholder, the Zandvliet family, who founded the company in 2011.

Headquartered in Alphen aan den Rijn, Bluetrail mediates for more than 400 interim professionals every year. The company has a clear focus on highly educated interim IT professionals working in the (semi-)public domain.

In recent years, Bluetrail has achieved impressive growth. Since current CEO Bart Wille took over several years ago, he has more than doubled the size of the company. At the heart of the company's success is the time and energy the organisation puts into finding the perfect match for their professionals and end clients. The current CEO of Bluetrail Group B.V., Bart Wille, is committed to lead the company’s next growth phase.

By investing substantially in the internal organisation and professionalising the company's systems, the company is now fully prepared for a new phase of growth. In the future, the focus will be on further strengthening the commercial side of the organisation and actively creating additional demand by further participating in the tender domain. In addition, the current management sees great potential in acquisitive growth.

Bart Wille, CEO of Bluetrail, says; "We are delighted to have Nordian on board as a strategic partner. We had an immediate click based on the discussions where personal connection and entrepreneurship prevail. This partnership will strengthen our unique position in the market while maintaining our DNA and enabling us to serve our customers even better. Nordian shares our vision and commitment to quality and innovation, and we are confident that this is the beginning of a very successful partnership."

Menno Wagenmakers, Partner at Nordian Capital, added: "We are very impressed with Bluetrail's development over the past few years and look forward to working with Bart Wille and his team. The company's clear focus and driven leadership provide a strong foundation for future growth and we are pleased to be able to contribute to that as well."

The transaction is subject to ACM approval.
