What makes us different?

We bridge cultures

We find talent that is effective in the US market and simultaneously blend well into the multi-cultural fabric of their employer.

We have a track record

Some of our start-up clients now lead the US market in their sectors, some of them with sales over $1 billion.

We are transparent

We share our knowledge, be it compensation information from competitors, market opportunities we identify, or the challenges potential candidates recognize as barriers to business success.

We have a flat organization

We like to conduct searches as a coherent team - even the Managing Partner, supported by a strong team, personally works on your assignment.

We are business-minded

We understand the art of building up American sales and manufacturing organizations. We are market-entry and corporate development experts who happen to be in executive search!

We are committed to international clients

90% of our projects are commissioned by international companies or their American subsidiaries.

We are not your typical recruiter

We are experts in the development and implementation of market entry strategies and organizational development - but have an HR bend!

We have international connections

We can connect you with proven partners - globally!

Few "off-limit' Issues

Most of the large, multinational executive search companies have framework agreements. This limits their ability to poach candidates. As a specialized firm we have few limitations!

Large, well maintained Proprietary Database

There are 290,000 often very detailed profiles are in our proprietary database.

Authenticity and Humility

We love to learn. We are aware that we don't know everything. This is why we prioritize research, conduct deep due diligence and always listen to our clients.

Extensive Personal Networks

We are expanding our personal network since 1997!

Extraordinary Research Capabilities

In order to find 'the one' existing contacts are frequently not sufficient. We identify and approach up to 1800 prospects. This is why we maintain a team of 10 in-house, full time researchers.

Expert Support during the Negotiation Phase

Developing, extending, negotiating and closing an offer with a high potential candidate is an art and a science. After hundreds of these negotiations, we are well-positioned to support our clients during this high-stakes phase.

We truly engage with our candidates

It requires deep personal interaction to convincingly communicate the advantages of working for a foreign company or SME. The broad responsibilities and the joy of personal growth need to be convincingly communicated by the recruiter
