We are established in 1998, and since then we have been occupied with Executive Search of chairs of the board, board members, CEOs, directors, middle managers – or the specialist, whom many gave up finding, for the purpose of creating long-term value for our clients. Such task are our most distinguished to solve, and we are proud of having a hit rate of above 98% measured by the candidate still being in employment and not under notice at expiry of the guarantee period.

How do we manage to obtain this hit rate? We do so through targeted processes and firm quality standards to ensure that everyone will successfully cross the finish line. Our high quality and the hit rate with candidates that we present as a result of our process is where we differentiate ourselves the most. Every day we work hard to uphold our clients' trust. We gladly put in 110%, and make that extra effort which will generate extraordinary results.

This is why we work in teams which will be specifically designed on the basis of the competences your assignment requires. We are thorough, and we never compromise on quality, in return we get close to both clients and candidates. With us, you will get an honest and dedicated business partner, who is respectful and result oriented.
