Who we are
TH Bender is the leading American executive search company of German heritage and American origin. Our mission is to recruit the first and second management level of the American subsidiaries of overseas-based companies.
We recruit 'Country Managers' (CEOs, Presidents, General Managers) and their direct reports, evaluate existing teams, help with succession planning and create successful teams from scratch – efficiently and discreetly.
The recruitment of any executive responsible for a P&L 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 of the parent company can make. Our team members have dedicated their careers helping our clients to make the correct hiring decisions.
Executive Recruiting and Corporate Development
Executive recruiting is not an isolated Human Resource issue - it is the key to the development and implementation of a business strategy. To our clients this statement means:
TH Bender provided crucial executive recruiting support to a new market entrant during critical inflexion points - from hiring the first US-based employee, scaling the sales organisation, staffing a factory, helping during the IPO and several M&A projects. Over ten years the US sales grew from zero to over $12000,0000,000).
We assessed and subsequently replaced the complete startup team; the new team grew the business pipeline from $1,000,000 to $165,000,000 within 18 months.
Our consultants supported a new player and helped the shareholders to grow from a staff of one expatriate a whole American team resulting in #2 market share and the subsequent acquisition by a globally leading corporation.
Together with our clients we help to translate their vision of business success in America into reality.
