Peter J. M. Goossens

Prior to co-founding Heritage Partners and a year as a solo practitioner, Peter Goossens was a Director at Spencer Stuart. He focused on the Life Sciences and Industrial sectors, where his clients included large pharmaceutical and bio-tech start-up companies as well as major European and American manufacturers.

Until 1999, he managed the Brussels office for Spencer Stuart. Clients included Janssen Pharmaceutica, Toyota Motors Europe, and Rexam PLC. Over 90% of his assignments were pan-European, sourcing candidates around the globe. His peers recognized the contributions to his clients by awarding him the Quality Award in 1997. He took a leadership role in the life sciences practice.

Peter started his search career with the Curtiss Group, a regional US search firm in Boca Raton Florida. Earlier, he spent seven years with Ciba-Geigy (now Novartis) in Switzerland, Ecuador and The Dominican Republic with leadership roles in strategic planning, financial control and marketing/sales.

Peter holds a Bachelor's degree in Applied Economic Sciences from St. Ignatius University in Antwerp, Belgium, and an MBA from Harvard Business School. He has lived and worked on three continents in five different countries and speaks fluent English, Spanish, French and German apart from his native Dutch. Peter is an avid tennis player and outdoorsman. He lives in Berwyn, PA., with his wife, Neera. His son is a junior at Stanford University and his daughter is a freshman at McGill University.
