Speaking about the appointment, Executive Board Member, Chris Heutink commented, “We are delighted to be able to promote Nick Pesch to the role of MD ANZ. With expert knowledge of both markets, Nick has been with Randstad for more than 13 years and understands the business needs, whilst also being an excellent partner to our clients. I’m excited to see how he will approach the role, and looking forward to what the future brings in both countries.”
On his new role, Nick Pesch said, ‘Having worked at Randstad for well over a decade, I am thrilled to be stepping up to spearhead the ANZ business. The HR and recruitment industry faces challenging times, but Frank leaves an excellent legacy for me to build on.

Speaking about his departure, Ribuot commented, “It has been six years of bliss and a heartbreak to go. My internal promotion is the result of the collective work the team and I have done together to get the businesses in ANZ, but also in the rest of my region, to a great position. The smooth transition that is happening is also proof of how well we plan for the future. Nick will do a fantastic job and will bring the team to yet another level. In the meantime, I will cherish all the relationships and friends I have made through our amazing workplace. It is a privilege to be surrounded every day by so many talented, genuine and motivated people. I wish them the very best”.
