Our Team

Eximium was founded in 2016 by Iman Lamrani and for the first three years was a successful recruitment and headhunting firm. In 2019, Eximium merged with two new partners, Michel Vanhoonacker and David Du Pré. This move brought new skillsets and a huge amount of experience and helped Eximium Talent LTD develop our management consultancy offering.

Our team works with you, your leadership and middle management teams to improve your offering and grow your business fast. Once you have received your Series A or Series B funding, we will integrate into your business as your very own expert HR Department. From there, we will gain a deep understanding of your company’s functionality and the strengths and weaknesses of all your teams. Then, we help you develop a business strategy that will help you scale the highest peaks and assist with recruitment of a team that will drive your SaaS start-up or scale-up on to the summit.

Is this website for both employers and employees?

Yes, whether you’re an employer or an employee, you can navigate to the relevant sections on the website to get the information you need. If you have any other questions, just contact us and one of our Sherpas will be in touch to set you on the right path.

What profiles does Eximium specialise in and what experience does the team have?

We specialise in go-to-market roles such as: sales, marketing, customer success, operations, finance, and legal. Our Sherpas can also focus on development roles, but that’s not one of our core areas.

Is Eximium a recruitment agency?

Eximium is much more than a recruitment agency. We’re a talent consultancy with two main focuses: Talent Acquisition and Talent Strategy. Our Sherpas provide guidance and advice to start-ups and scale-ups that want to grow. We build lasting relationships with our clients and develop partnerships by establishing a successful and effective HR Department and framework for company growth.

What are your rates and what commission do you charge an employer?

Eximium is not a traditional recruiter, so we don’t charge in the way traditional recruiters do. Our pricing is based on a ‘Talent as a Service’ subscription model. So, we charge monthly, fixed subscription fees based on specific targets and a fixed commission based on achieving those targets. This provides far better value and saves the client money when compared to traditional recruitment pricing models.

How long have you been recruiting for, and for whom?

Our founder, Iman Lamrani, has been in the talent industry since 2010 and our model is based on her personal experience and that of her clients. We’ve worked successfully with many SaaS companies such as Unit4, Intigriti, TeamLeader, Radix and many more. Our talent Sherpas have over 10 years’ combined experience in recruitment & HR.
