Dynamic People is entering the next phase of growth with Gate Invest to fulfill its ambition: to be the best strategic partner for end-to-end business solutions based on Microsoft technology. Hogenhouck m&a advised the owners of Dynamic People in this transaction.
Continuing success story
As a strategic Microsoft Gold partner, Dynamic People advises, designs, delivers, implements and manages cloud solutions based on Microsoft Dynamics 365, PowerPlatform and Azure. Founded in 2006, Dynamic People has grown into a mature organization with about 70 professionals. Together with Gate – the investment fund of the Vermaat family – Dynamic People aims to continue its success story as a provider of business applications based on Microsoft technology. With this new phase, the company wants to realize its mission on a larger scale: to grow together with customers, partners and employees at home and abroad.
Management with growth ambitions
Founders as well as current management team Jeroen Bunck (CEO), Mike van Ophem (Co-Founder) and Michel Lecluse (Managing Partner) continue to build the organization. Dynamic People is anything but a traditional IT house and wants to further develop into the best strategic partner for Microsoft applications. In doing so, the company focuses on segments such as commodities and trading, professional services, finance and retail in the Netherlands and abroad, including England, America, Germany and Switzerland. In addition to standard Microsoft products, a number of proprietary solutions such as Cloud4Commodities and Configure Price Quote (CPQ) are also deployed. These products will be further developed and expanded in the coming years.
Multiple disciplines for further development
Jeroen Bunck, co-founder and CEO of Dynamic People: “The market is developing rapidly and that requires extra attention spread over several disciplines. That is why we started looking for a strategic partner who can support us in our next step. This is necessary to stay ahead as an expert in Microsoft and our own products. It also enables us to continue to offer our people professional challenges and development opportunities. Our independence and the preservation and strengthening of our culture are essential in this respect. In Gate we have found a partner who fully shares our vision on this.”
Maintain strong corporate culture
Co-founder Mike van Olphen: “Our organization is made by our people. People First has always been our promise in this regard. With Gate Invest we have attracted a growth partner that has an eye and attention for what makes us successful. Our culture makes our company strong. It is a nice and safe place to work, and it should stay that way. The new partnership offers many opportunities for our people; it allows us to focus even more on personal development. This will allow us to offer an even broader range of assignments and challenges to our people over time.”
Entrepreneurs at the wheel
The team at Gate Invest is also proud of the new partnership. Paul Vermaat: “We consciously choose companies with a healthy culture and strong entrepreneurs at the wheel. The match with Dynamic People feels right: we share the great ambition to grow, as a company and as people. With our entrepreneurial experience, expertise and knowledge we can add a lot of value. We look forward to the future.”
