As of 1 May 2021, Bea will also serve as the director of a new PROOF label, PROOF PEOPLE.
Katinka’s appointment reflects PROOF’s drive to further grow and develop the agency. PROOF’s services focus on change communication and employee alignment. Katinka’s arrival will enable the agency to further build on this. Every day, the PROOF team dedicates itself to helping clients with change programmes and improve employee journeys. Through PROOF PEOPLE, the agency now also offers interim management and services.

Bea Aarnoutse: “We are delighted to have Katinka on board. Her experience will allow us to take the steps forward that we want to take. Not only does she have a lot of experience with the type of transition that many of our clients are going through, but she has also shown time and again that changes succeed if there is the right kind of attention to employees. She’s a true professional with a huge amount of client experience and a real heart for people. She’s a great fit for PROOF.”
Katinka Huijberts: “I look forward to contributing to PROOF’s ambitions. I’m really passionate about this field of work, as I have learnt that it makes the difference between the success or failure of an organisational transition. I feel honoured to be able to lead this fantastic professional agency and I look forward to working with everyone at PROOF.”
