Netherlands – Recruitment veteran pioneer Sagius dies

18 June 2013

Dutch recruitment veteran Ad Sagius who founded the staffing firm Dactylo in the late 1960s, later sold to Vedior Group and then Randstad, has died at the age of 75 after a short illness, his family announced.

Mr Sagius, born in Rotterdam, built his recruitment business from his home alongside his wife, Babs, in 1969, growing it to one of the largest staffing companies in the Netherlands within a decade. The firm became one of the ten-largest recruiters in the country with over 200 branches in its domestic market, Belgium and England.

In 1981, Dactylo merged with the Vedior Group, a Dutch recruitment company where Mr Sagius worked as international marketing director from 1996 to 2000 before leaving the company altogether. Vedior was sold to Randstad in 2008, with the deal integrating the Dactylo brand into Randstad’s own brands. Mr Sagius’s son Marc has inherited his father’s interest in the recruitment industry, currently running the staffing firm Sagius Uitzenders in the Netherlands.
