Our success in numbers



All that counts –
your perfect match




What do we do differently than the others?



We don’t just search profiles.
We meet people.



Our high success rate is no coincidence, as it results from a clear strategy of focusing on the essentials. As simple as that sounds, this means we must consider ideas, goals, and expectations of the parties involved. It is these key people who are the primary focus of our work. Compared to other executive search firms, we engage far more closely with our candidates – and that makes the difference.



We invest a lot so that
your investment pays off



Communication is the key to our sustainable success, since communication means closeness. Such interpersonal exchanges are extremely important to us, as this is the only way to explore whether or not a durable, long-term working relationship can be formed. Beyond skill sets and CVs, there is one crucial question we need to answer: Are the expectations and goals of both parties a mutual fit?




Executive Search –
with human touch




Executives in particular expect individual consultation and coaching from us. We have multiplied our communication activities with candidates over the last 5 years. We spend several hours a day on the phone with candidates – collecting feedback, evaluating expectations, and providing consultation or coaching services. And we spend just as much time and effort in discussions with our clients, in order to share and reflect upon the insights and feedback we have gained from candidates.



The goal of all stakeholders: long-term successful placement

An unsuccessful placement causes not only personal difficulties for the candidates, but it’s also an inefficient expenditure and a bad investment for the client. That’s why we invest a great deal of time and energy at the front end of the process to ensure your successful long-term placement – your perfect match.

How we work // 1 Information phase



A matter
of trust



At the beginning of a project, we carefully collect all the information that is crucial for the success. This is necessary in order to design a role profile which is as accurate as possible and helps to create an appealing first contact with potential candidates. The most important part of this first phase is building trust.




Focus on you and your requirements


  • Project start: In-depth briefing regarding role profile, objectives, corporate culture, management style

  • Additional research and analysis of the business environment

  • Consultation on the role profile and compensation package in line with the market

  • Development of a client-specific search strategy going beyond the immediate market environment

Focus on the candidate and your goals


  • Personal dialogue with the candidates, professional and confidential initial contact. We act as ambassadors of your employer brand

  • Creation of a dialogue among equals without pressure to act

  • Potential candidates are given ample opportunity to assess the position offered with their own career and personal goals

A three-party dialogue



Now the most intense and important stage of the process begins, in which there is a great deal of information to be exchanged between candidates and clients. We facilitate this dialogue in a mediating and coaching way. Our ongoing availability for personal discussions plays a critical role in the success of the process at this point. The candidates make regular use of our consultation which enables us to explore which topics and potential concerns are truly relevant.
