Meet the Core Team
David Cives Enriquez
Recuitment Savvy - As the founder of Savvy Group, my goal has always been to disrupt the services industry with a variety of consolidated service offering never before seen in the FDI space by a single company. Whilst this is a work in progress, in an ever-changing global market. We have come a long way over the years in developing our service lines, and moreover, the unique Savvy company culture, where everyone can be themselves, open, honest and direct. I am privileged to work with such a dedicated team of professionals from whom I am also able to learn from.
Finance Savvy- Renier is just about the funniest financial professional we have ever known at Savvy, so much so, that he often laughs at his own jokes, even when others don’t. He is internationally focused, has a can do mentality, and nothing is impossible. If Savvy were to have a company mascot, he would certainly be a serious contender.
Payroll Savvy- Is our loveable resident payroll superstar, with extensive knowledge on local and international payroll subject matter, including but not limited to structuring comp & bens set up. Multitasking and communication are definitely her core strengths, and she brings Dutch directness to a whole new level.
HR Savvy - Is often the voice of reason in the team, she keeps us firmly grounded and always has our best interests at heart. She is accurate, curious and will never stop until the job is done. She is popular with clients due to her precision, speed and flexibility, whilst always approaching with that creative Savvy flair. Furthermore, Chaja is our Israeli connection and when we are really nice to Chaja, she will treat us to her signature banana bread… OMG its good!
Immigration Savvy- Established the Savvy China desk three years ago and is consequently managing all inward related business from China and Asia Pacific. Joycelyn brings the oriental touch to our team, educating us on the finer things in life, from exotic rare teas to culinary delights we have never heard of. She brings new meaning to 24/7 availability and raises the bar very high when it comes to client experience.
Danny de Kinderen
Payroll Savvy- Danny has a shockingly sharp sense of humour; we all think his former calling was as a stand-up comedian. Danny manages his clients with a seamless finesse and always with a smile. He is the typical example of a Dutch person who speaks better English than most expats and even has a calendar with all his friends’ birthdays in his toilet at home.
HR Savvy-Jodie is our Chinese Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, with her ability to fluently communicate in Mandarin and Cantonese, whilst also having Dutch & English as her native tongue, Jodie is a HR Linguist rock star! She is the youngest in our team and still has the ability to teach her colleagues from time to time, absolutely priceless!
HR Savvy - Bram is our Boxing & CrossFit guru, he is super fit, super balanced and always dresses to impress. He loves the variety that consulting work encompasses and always gives his all with the clients. Complex situations trigger him in his daily life, especially with the ladies as he rolls with the punches. His nature is to keep going and never give up which is a corner stone of Savvy people and admirable in an individual of this age.
Payroll Savvy-Diana is the latest addition to our Payroll Team and brings the balance of Ying & Yang on her direct piers. She is getting to grips with the Savvy Culture and Humour, and we all expect big things from her this coming year…
Recruitment Savvy - Tao is our recruitment professional extraordinaire, he manages assignments from ground zero and is particularly strong with IT related roles. His recruitment approach is specific, proactive and sniper, he relies on his excellent ability to connect with professionals at all levels of an organization and his in-depth understanding of international business and IT. He is quick on the draw and never misses a target!
HR Savvy - Linda came to us many years ago with a wealth of knowledge and experience in employment law, she is our resident legal counsel, who can assist with the broad strokes of employment and contract law. Linda has the ability to see through the most complex matters, whilst thinking outside of the box and making us all laugh at the same time, she is a Stella member of our team and a sparring partner to all.
Pension Savvy- Agnes is our Certified Pension & Insurance rocket scientist, she has the unique talent of translating the most complex of things into kids play, which we all love off course! Furthermore Agnes is our knowledge rock, there is little to nothing she does not know in her field which is very scary… Thank you for the constant ongoing teachings Agnes!
Real Estate Savvy- He knows everything there is to know about the residential real estate in all of the major cities in the Netherlands. He is also a keen investor of real estate and likes to share his knowledge and insights into market trends. When you are looking for an interesting off market deal, he is your man!
Richard De Bie
Tax Savvy- He is our cross boarder tax specialist, with more years of experience than he would like to admit within the international tax arena, he has been around the block a few times. Richard has a talent for breaking down complex tax issues into palatable and easy to use information; his ability to communicate at different levels of an organization is definitely a contributing factor to his popularity and ongoing success.
