Human Factor

CourtesyMasters is focussed on the human factor. The individual ‘behind’ the professional, teams and (management of) employers. Examples of questions that we continuously ask ourselves are: what is the exact motive? what are the real skills? what skills are still under-used and what skills can be improved? what type of person fits best in a specific company? what type of person fits best into an existing team? In short: human factor matters!


CourtesyMasters was founded by Mr Fons Bitter in Rotterdam, The Netherlands in 1999. As an experienced hotel manager, Fons started to deliver permanent and interim hotel management solutions to employers and career management solutions to hotel & hospitality professionals. Since 2007, Mrs Larissa Zwart, who joined CourtesyMasters in the year 2004, is owner and director of CourtesyMasters since 2007. We developed unique recruitment 3.0 services that lead to permanent and interim solutions. Nowadays, we are a full service talent management & career management agency. Powered by a network of independent entrepreneurs, loving hospitality and talent.
