Our People

While they invest in themselves, together we invest in others.

-

As a boutique business, we are able to put people first. It starts with the people who work with us. The fact that we do not have megalomaniac offices ensures that everyone within the company knows each other. This creates a strong bond and an optimum cooperation between our employees. All this enables us to guarantee the best service to our customer. From our offices around the world we provide high level services with a personal approach as if we are just around the corner.

 

We realize that we work in an industry where money and profit play an important role. Corpag facilitates this for its customers, and we do that well. For us, however, making as much profit as possible is not our primary goal. We consider ourselves successful when we make a sustainable contribution to the world and the people around us. We want to have an impact on the world in which we work. This is not an empty marketing slogan but a firm promise reflected in our Corpag Curiosity program.

 

We really do not just invest in the people around us, but without question we also invest in ourselves. Below is a small selection of the dedicated people that work with Corpag all around the world.

CORPAG

PEOPLE

“Because of the short internal communication lines, we are able to react fast to our international clients all over the world. And all that in a surprising personal way.”

MAXIM

 

Dutch - Working with Corpag since 2014 - Study: International Business

Enriched his life by getting in touch with complete new cultures. Maxim moved to Hong Kong and to Singapore for Corpag and became the Managing Director Asia-Pacific.

 

“Via Corpag I got the ultimate chance to move to new countries. I got to know new cultures by opening two offices in complete different continents. Being part of the Corpag Group since 2014, I feel that the climate within the company is truly focused on people instead of Excel-spreadsheets. As an employee you benefit from the fact that Corpag is a boutique company.  This is demonstrated by the short decision making times, the independence you get as an employee and the hands-on management style.

 

I always describe myself as a ‘corporate entrepreneur’ with full support and empowerment under the Corpag wings. Working with a mix of private individuals and families, entrepreneurs and big corporations makes my daily work fun and challenging.”

All without forgetting about the world we live in.”

SARAH

 

Scottish - Working with Corpag since: 2017 - Law

Coming from Edinburgh she found what she was looking for The Netherlands. Sarah became Legal Manager at the Amsterdam office with focus on excellent service.

 

“Before I came to Amsterdam, I’ve worked for a Scottish boutique law firm who pride themselves on excellent service. Whilst looking for job opportunities in The Netherlands I learned about Corpag, which seemed to have the same values as I was used to. Hearing about the ESG-policy of the company, my decision was made. To me it’s very important to work for a company that doesn’t only care about business, but also about the world around it.

 

Being a boutique company, we have short lines of communication and therefore you are given responsibility early in your career but with the necessary support to flourish. Having a flat hierarchy means you always have a voice at the table and others will listen to your contribution. That way you feel that you are a valued member of the team.”

“In our mission to remain a small boutique service provider, we manage to truly put the customer first and give our employees the opportunity to develop themselves at the same time.”

HENNY

 

Dutch - Working with Corpag since 2015 - Study: Accounting and Finance

Decided to move from Curacao to the United States in 2015. Henny was eager to take the opportunity to work at the Corpag office in Miami and later became Director.

 

“Before I got my current position I was already familiar with the reputable company Corpag. After working as a tax advisor in Curacao I was eager to start as relationship manager for the company’s office in Miami. Since then I have developed myself further and became Director. Being a boutique firm, I personally manage my clients’ portfolios. This personal approach ensures that every client feels truly appreciated and receives all the focus and attention they deserve.

 

In addition to my managing role, I am in charge of FATCA services for the company. Working for Corpag gave me the valuable opportunity to gain extensive knowledge and understanding of the US tax system. On a personal level my work put me in the fortunate position to build a network of great professionals in the area.”

EWOUT

 

Dutch - Working with Corpag since 2006 - LLM, MBA

Stepped away on purpose from the typical legal, advisory or consultancy career path. Ewout started in Curaçao before becoming Group Managing Director in Amsterdam.

 

“During my MBA I first heard about Corpag, when meeting an employee of the company who was doing an executive MBA at the same university. The personal approach and the international clientele triggered me to work for Corpag. On top of that, the idea to live and work for a number of years in the Caribbean, didn’t sound like a bad one. Now, more than a decade later, I’m happy to put all my energy in protecting our mission whilst putting Corpag’s money where our mouth is: Investing in the growth of people within ánd around the company.

 

In the last years I’ve learned how to deal with different cultures by working with colleagues from five different continents. In today's role I help my colleagues by encouraging them to take responsibility for their own development. Working in a flat, boutique organization makes it easier to put the people of Corpag - and the people around our business - first.”

“With our international exposure, cultural affinities and personal approach towards the client we aim to facilitate - with a tailor made service - their international needs.”

NORBERTO

 

Brazilian - Working with Corpag since 2012 - Study: Business Administration, MBA, Law

Was a client of Corpag himself before he decided to join the office in Brazil. Norberto took over the management of the Brazilian office in 2012.

 

“Until I joined Corpag I’ve always worked for bigger size companies, which I perceived to be better organized / a better place to be. In Miami I became friends with two people from Corpag on STEP meetings and networking events. The big advantage to be part of the Corpag team is simple: no politics. Also, in a flat organisation it’s way easier to get things done and to see the extent of your capabilities and productivity. Over the last years the Brazilian office grew a lot in personal and in volume of business. Together with the team we conveyed our experience and showed we had all it took to be a regarded player in the market.

 

The Corpag approach is to connect locally with the advisors and clients as well. With a white canvas approach we solve any issue that is presented to us. This is how we can help our clients directly, when a question comes up. With this approach we truly distinguish ourselves from the rest of the market in all countries Corpag is based.”

NICOLE

 

Dominican - Working with Corpag since 2017 - Study: Bachelor’s in Law (Dominican Republic); Master of Laws (USA)

Feels lucky to say she works with people she can call, more than colleagues, her friends. Nicole considers her office in Miami not just as a place to work, but as a place to look forward to going into every morning.

 

“Every day I am more confident in what I do and what I am capable of, thanks to the trust everybody at Corpag has placed in me. We can count on everybody for support because we work as a team, not only in the Miami office, but all Corpag offices combined. You are also easily able to speak with high-level management, and they make sure we are aware that they are available for us whenever we need it.

 

The fact that Corpag is a boutique service provider makes it stand out from the rest. Our relationship with our clients is more personal, which makes our clients feel special. They truly get the attention they want and deserve; clients feel the dedication we put in our work. It also feels great to put a lot of individualized attention in your daily work.”

DAVID

 

Venezuelan - Working with Corpag since 2015 - Study: LLM

Was looking for new challenges in an international environment. David started as Legal Account Manager and took the chance to become Compliance Officer in 2017.

 

“I was working for a law firm in Venezuela when I got in touch with Corpag, since we were their client. When I heard Corpag was hiring, I applied and was happy to join the team in Curaçao. With the help of the company I definitely grew a lot as a professional in the last years. This due to the internal and external courses in which Corpag encourages to participate. Besides that, the management is always available to discuss work, which is also a great opportunity to develop yourself.

 

Unique about working with this company is the lack of layers and bureaucracy. Everybody in the team is responsible for their own work in a transparent and visible manner. Which ensures the work is always done and it’s done properly.”

TOMAS

 

Chilean - Working with Corpag since 2017 - Study: Law

Established the office in Chili in order to be able to serve clients in the region. Tomas feels comfortable in a company that prefers to be the best instead of being the largest.

 

“I’ve heard about Corpag through co-workers I’ve met during my previous job. They talked very positive about the company, their policies and the people. Joining Corpag in 2017 was the best decision I could have made. The trust and the responsibilities that the company gave me to develop activities in Latin America, means a lot to me. It helped our office a lot in becoming a known party in this market and giving our clients a service based on excellence.

 

Besides some hard skills, I’ve learned how to work in a global team where everyone works with the same purpose. No hard internal competition or envy. We just learn from each others experiences and cultures. Like this we don’t only create valuable long-term relationships with our clients, but also with each other.”

Working with Corpag gives me the chance to not only build a professional, but also a personal bond with the clients. Which results in some clients becoming true friends.

 

During the last years, Corpag has become a very important part of my life. Luckily, this is not just a random group of people doing good business. We add a personal touch in everything we do.

CHANEL

 

Swiss - Working with Corpag since 2013 - Study: Master of Laws


Got introduced to Corpag by a friend who was a client of the Company. Chanel started as an Account Manager in Geneva and has now grown as Client Director in the Amsterdam office.

 

“Immediately after my first contact with the people of Corpag, I felt comfortable and I directly experienced their unique management style. The genuine attention to people's professional and personal developments was very appealing to me. Still, when I talk to friends about Corpag, they are quite amazed how open and personal this company is.

 

Now - six years later - I have gained an acute understanding and knowledge of today's International Trade Business. Our job is a people's job, which puts us on a day to day basis in front of people with a variety of backgrounds, experiences and cultures. And this is truly enriching and at the same time challenging. We are lucky to work every day in this environment and get to know and work with persons who have many different cultural background.”
