We know that each top management position which needs to be filled is about solving a unique problem or a unique task. We have experienced this many times, worked closely with clients and helped them to find a solution. And many times we have managed to find the “right” person, who can achieve the greatest impact, where it is needed.
First and foremost we ask questions. We ask so we can understand. We want to know what personality the position requires, rather than what person. Only then do we begin our search. We don’t search for people who can simply “direct” companies or major entities. We work together with supervisory boards, company owners and executive boards to find people who can and want to lead. “Directing” a company saves time at most. But “leading” a company means getting the best out of it and taking it to a future packed with opportunities. Teams and employees will follow a person who leads – and vice versa.
We search for – and we find – people and personalities who can lead. For your company’s future. Ultimately, success is what matters. The more successful our search and the more suitable the candidate, the better for our client, and the better for us. That is how we see it.
Our clients include
- DAX-listed companies
- listed companies and corporations worldwide
- large family-run and mid-sized companies
- companies with private equity
Each top management position that has to be filled is about solving a unique problem or a unique task.
What does “right” mean anyway? Should the “right” person be a team player? Or a lone wolf with unique talents? A generalist? A specialist? With industry experience? Or with experience in a different industry? How old? Young? Or rather in their mid-50s? Should they be local? Or have a different nationality? Should it be someone with a flawless career? Or a rough diamond?
Those who have to make decisions on the “right” person at top management level know how difficult this can be. At the same time, as any supervisory board, executive board or entrepreneur with many years of experience also knows, even– or especially – in these days of teamwork, international cooperation and advancing artificial intelligence, the right woman or man in the right position can make all the difference.
Science concurs with the many years of business experience on this matter: When it comes down to it, what determines the success or failure of a company is not outstanding products, the best innovations or most innovative concepts. When it comes down to it, what matters is having the “right” people in the “right” positions. And nobody can help the supervisory board or owner of a company in this most noble and important, but also most difficult task. Which is why there are experienced professionals, who can help them to reach this decision – experts who keep a low profile, but who are clever and exceptionally competent in their field.
