Catherine Bölger

Manager HR

Catherine has been with 's Heeren Loo for over five years, initially serving as the recruitment manager and now as the HR manager. In this role, she is responsible for HR service delivery in various regions and oversees HR teams. Catherine began by leading the recruitment department towards becoming a proactive unit that operates decentrally, close to the customers, and thinks from the perspective of the job applicant rather than solely from the managers. She then transitioned to the "working from your talent" approach, the new recruitment strategy, which was implemented in July '23.
