Henk Bremer (born 1943 in Amsterdam) has, during his professional career, in every role he played, been captivated by the importance of 'human capital' in the realisation of strategic change, but also by the contribution of management to the success or failure of the enterprise. In the first decade of his professional life, Bremer lived in Sweden, where he studied informatics and economics. He developed into an early pioneer in computerizing business processes. At a very early age he was promoted into a leadership role.

In the early seventies he came back to the Netherlands where he gave direction to IT in the fast developing Vendex organization (Retail). In the late seventies he operated as a trouble-shooter and internal interim manager within this conglomerate, holding executive positions at CxO level during the organisational change phase of new acquisitions.

Bremer has, within the Capgemini Group, held a number of different management positions.

In the period 1997-2001 he led the program 'positioning and professionalizing management services'. In this program Capgemini Interim Management was established, an organization that delivers temporary executive management in the top of the market. Capgemini Interim Management puts a strong focus on developing leadership competences of the leaders in its network and on coaching its leaders during their engagements ('shadow management').

 

In his publication 'Management Sourcing, een strategisch vraagstuk in een dynamische markt' he described the, in the interim management world, rejuvenating concept of Management Sourcing.
