We succeed by approaching potential candidates directly and discreetly.

We only accept mandates we can successfully complete.

Normally, the right candidate is not actively looking for a job but must be found.

An open approach reduces
the attractiveness of the vacancy.

We focus on managers who`s skills, know-how and leadership qualities can make a true difference to your organization.

Our intensive network and industry knowledge allow us to identify candidates that offer the right skill set.

We build long term client relationships with a limited number of clients in each market segment.

Our goal is to become your partner and trusted advisor to your most fundamental decision - who is going to lead your company in the future?

* We don´t offer outplacement, coaching, audits, search via job advertisement or personnel placement.
