Background and Development

The collaboration originated from a shared need for support on a client project. “We were looking for a partner who could complement our services,” explains Gerard van den Bogaart. “Comaxx, with its strong background in online marketing and e-commerce, was a logical choice.”

The partnership is grounded in mutual appreciation for each other’s expertise. “Working with Referro enables us to better support our clients in their international growth,” says Sam van der Put. Gerard agrees: “With Referro’s in-depth experience in B2B and high-end retail, and our knowledge of e-commerce and online marketing, we can offer a complete package.”

Sam explains: “Referro is the exclusive Dutch partner of BBN International and gives us access to over 1,300 experts in 66 cities, spread across 33 countries worldwide. This allows us to reach and serve a broader market.”

“This collaboration is not just a strategic move, but also an opportunity to learn from each other and grow together,” notes Gerard van den Bogaart. “We believe that our joint efforts will result in increased value for our clients.”


The directors of both agencies are optimistic about the future. “Referro and Comaxx complement each other perfectly, and together they literally offer a world of possibilities for companies at home and abroad.” This partnership is a step forward in realizing our ambition to play a leading role in both the national and international market,” concludes Sam van der Put.
