In a market going increasingly digital, Kilpatrick and BFK respond to the challenging search for the best talents by promoting BFK Digital, with the goal to create an ecosystem of excellence in the digital world, on which all Group’s digital assets and capabilities will converge. BFK Digital starts from People, the first engine of digital transformation.

Leading-edge professionals are what the Fashion market needs and in order to meet the growing demand, Kilpatrick Group SA, Executive Search company numbering 17 branch offices all over the world, has recently taken over BFK HR Consulting, a consulting company specialized in human resources focusing on ICT applied to Fashion.  

A trusted partner to everyone in need of specialized, highly professional consulting services in the field of human resources: from Staff Selection and Recruitment all the way down to Head Hunting, Executive Search and Coaching.

By joining Kilpatrick Group, BFK HR Consulting thus significantly upscaled its services thanks to Kilpatrick’s international scope and a twenty-year-old experience in the field of HR Consulting. Kilpatrick Group owns Kilpatrick Executive Search, an international Executive Search company, ADK, the leading Executive Search company actively operating in the world of Aviation, and Gemini, an Executive Search company specializing in DACH.

Kilpatrick is one of the leading firms in defining great leadership – focusing on both emerging and mature markets – always challenged on most innovative industries and the new emerging skills in the digital world. With its offices scattered in several international markets, Kilpatrick can successfully identify and select the best resources everywhere.

Relying on a pan-European mark and on its wide-ranging, established experience, Kilpatrick and BFK have thus promoted BFK Digital with the goal to create an ecosystem of excellence in the digital world, on which all Group’s digital assets and capabilities will converge. BFK Digital starts from people and capabilities, among the others the first engine of digital transformation. We believe People is the prime enabler of any digital-native business model and technological opportunity.

BFK Digital developed a unique Capability Model that combines deep understanding of People Digital Requirements, ground experience on Digital Transformation Programs and knowledge on Digital Tech and Innovation Domains. Through BFK Digital Capability Model, we work through 3 service lines, tailored on industry specific value drivers and innovations that concern people and skills (Digital People), HR area as a boost for digital transformation (HRTech) and external innovation through people (People Open Innovation).

The strength of our company resides in its global network – says Jaap Hoekstra, General Manager of BFK digital and CEO of Kilpatrick Group. “We have seventeen branch offices all over the world and the ability to identify the best resources anywhere.”

We are thrilled about this new challenge – Hoekstra underlines – as well as about the experienced partners we are sharing this adventure with“.
