The Face behind Fishfin

Michael Witts

Mike set up Fishfin in November 2010. Having worked previously at one of the largest specialized (finance) global recruiters where he learned the “recruitment trade”. From making a placement in his second month he went on to become the top performer in the Netherlands and a top 20 worldwide.

After 5 years of corporate recruitment, he decided to take the entrepreneurial path and set up Fishfin. Mike sees himself more of an entrepreneur than a corporate player. He loves the “niet lullen, maar poetsen” mentality which combines nicely with the entrepreneurial spirit of Private Equity. Over the past 12 years he has built a strong network and understanding of this particular niche.
