House of HR firm Cohedron acquires Vanberkel Professionals

House of HR’s Dutch service provider Cohedron is to acquire consultancy firm Vanberkel Professionals.

This is Cohedron’s first takeover since it was acquired by House of HR, the European group of HR service companies, earlier this summer.

Vanberkel Professionals offers financial specialists in the public sector, with a focus on five sectors: central government, local authorities, housing co-operatives, care and education. 

Speaking about Cohedron’s acquisition, Rika Coppens (pictured), CEO of House of HR, comments: “It’s just fantastic to see that a company we just took over is showing so much dynamics itself. By taking over Vanberkel Professionals, we strengthen our position in the public authorities consultancy business, not only for local but also for governmental authorities.”

The acquisition strengthens Cohedron’s position on the Dutch public sector consultancy market with financial professionals for the central government. Vanberkel Professionals will continue its operations under the same name and with the same management. 

The recent takeover of Cohedron by House of HR has now officially been approved by the Dutch competition authority ACM and is fully closed. The acquisition of Vanberkel Professionals is House of HR’s fifth takeover already in 2021.
