Executive Recruiting and Corporate Development

Executive recruiting is not an isolated Human Resource issue. The recruitment of any executive responsible for a P&L and his/her team is the key factor determining success or failure in an international market. It is the most consequential decision executives, owners and shareholders of the parent company can make - it is the key to the development and implementation of a business strategy.
