Who we are

Automotive Linked is a small agency with a wide reach, founded by Edwin Ritmeester. We’ve been well known in the automotive industry for quite a number of years. We’ve been sitting on opposite sides of the table on behalf of big international players such as DAF Trucks, PACCAR, BOSAL, AIMS and Korn Ferry. Here, we fulfilled various functions in the areas of account management, business development, executive recruitment, talent acquisition and employer branding.

35,000+ worldwide members
Automotive Linked
was started in 2008 by lack of a decent international online automotive network. Twelve years and more than 35,000 members in Europe, Latin America, North America and Asia Pacific  later, we rank among the ten largest automotive networks in the world.

Global focus
Today’s world requires a global focus, but local and regional approaches and viewpoints are essential. With offices in every major geographic area, we offer international search expertise on a worldwide scale. As “One Firm” we operate as one collaborative team, merging our individual talents with the collective expertise of our global network of 80+ offices in 50+ countries. 

How to establish a presence in Africa? What are the differences between the various West European markets and how to best approach them? How to source good automotive professionals in the US and to gain acceptance in the market? What is the best organisational structure for my sales team in the Balkans or Eastern Europe? How to configure my organisation in Asia?

Automotive Linked can help you find the answers to such questions thanks to our distinct organisational model; it allows us to think beyond traditional country borders and to build teams specifically for each client and assignment in response to the particular need at hand.

Supporting recruiting challenges
A survey among our members showed that there is big demand for transparency in the field of career opportunities in the automotive industry. Consequently, Automotive Linked is now also a partner in talent recruiting at executive, management and specialist levels. We offer an important mix of market knowledge on the one hand and a network of unprecedented range on the other. Our transparency and pragmatic approach enable us to support your most complex recruiting challenges. Against quite a realistic fee too.
