Executive Recruiting for Overseas Companies active in America - the Business Case
The recruitment of any executive responsible for a P&L (CEO, President, General Manager, Country Manager, etc.) and his/her team is the key factor determining success or failure in the American market. It is the most consequential decision the executives, owners and shareholders at the parent company can make.
The professionals at TH Bender have dedicated their careers to helping overseas companies making the right hiring decisions in the USA and Canada. Our team consists of recruiting, business, legal and tax experts familiar with all facets of market entry and expansion covering sales, manufacturing, project development and many other functions.
Executive recruiting is not an isolated Human Resource issue - and should not be treated as such. It is a strategic business decision. Here a few examples illustrating the return-on-investment intelligent executive recruiting can achieve:

Our client is the largest developer and manufacturer of power storage solutions in Europe. The company had an already a strong, business development oriented Country Manager who had identified the market and growth potential.
We find for our predominantly international clients mainly American executives for positions located anywhere in the United States and Canada, across all functions, in almost all industries.
We work throughout the USA and Canada with a fairly even geographical distribution of assignments. At times we accept interesting assignments outside our core market (for example Country Manager positions for new subsidiaries of our clients in Brazil, South Africa, Germany, Singapore).
