Dynamic People and Gate invest

With Gate Invest, Dynamic People is entering the next phase of growth to realize its ambition: being the best strategic partner for end-to-end Microsoft technology-based business solutions.

AMSTERDAM – Dynamic People has found a strategic growth partner in Gate Invest, the investment fund of the Vermaat family. Together with Gate, Dynamic People wants to continue its success story as a provider of business applications (such as Microsoft Dynamics 365 ERP and CRM, Power Platform and AZURE) based on Microsoft technology. This new phase also brings many opportunities to realize the company’s mission on a larger scale: growing together with customers, partners and employees, both in The Netherlands as abroad.

Jeroen Bunck, co-founder and CEO of Dynamic People: “The market is developing rapidly and that requires extra attention spread over multiple disciplines. That is why we started looking for a strategic partner who can support us to the next phase. This is necessary to stay ahead as an expert in Microsoft and our own products. It also allows us to continue to offer our people the challenge and development opportunities that we promise. Our independence and preservation and strengthening of our culture are essential. In Gate we have found a partner who not only understands our vision on this, but also shares it.”


Management and growth ambitions

The current management as well as the founders (Jeroen Bunck (CEO), Mike van Ophem (Co-Founder) and Michel Lecluse (Managing Partner)) continue to expand the organization. In this, the course remains unchanged. Dynamic People is anything but a traditional IT house and has the ambition to develop into the best strategic partner for Microsoft Business Applications. The company is active in various segments, including Commodities & Trading, Professional Services, Financials and recently Retail. In doing so, it mainly uses the standard Microsoft products, supplemented where necessary with a number of its own products such as the Cloud4Commodities and Configure Price Quote (CPQ). These products will continue to be developed and expanded in the coming years. Dynamic People implements solutions in both the Netherlands and abroad, including the United Kingdom, United States, Germany and Switzerland.


People first

“Our organization is made by our people,” Mike van Ophem adds. “People First has always been our promise. With this focus, we have attracted a growth partner who has an eye and attention for what makes us successful. Our culture makes our company strong. It is a nice and safe place to work, and it should stay that way. The new partnership offers many opportunities for our people; this allows us to focus even more on personal development. This allows us to offer an even broader package of projects and challenges to our people over time.”


Strong entrepreneurship

Gate’s team is also proud of the new collaboration. Paul Vermaat: “We consciously choose companies with a solid culture and strong entrepreneurs leading the business. The match with Dynamic People feels good: we share the great ambition to grow, as a company and as people. With our entrepreneurial experience, expertise and knowledge, we can add a lot of value. We look forward to the future.” Gate Invest joined as a shareholder on 30 June 2022.
