Professional – Reliable – Authentic

MY PROFESSION

I advise companies in their selection of specialists and executives with great success and precision since 2002. I search for and recognize the management competencies that are needed in their specific companies and have the network and experience to bring the right people together. Because my expertise and my engagement are international, reaching beyond Germany and Europe, I count many mandates from other European countries, North America and Asia.

MY INSIGHTS

I value clear opinions, doubt conventional wisdom and do not say yes just because it is expected. This may be a challenge for some, but I am convinced that a polite non-binding nature does not lead to the goal. My clients therefore value my authenticity, professionalism and commitment.
