INTERNATIONAL EXECUTIVE SEARCH – HELPING COMPANIES SUCCEED GLOBALLY
TH Bender is the leading American executive search company for recruiting efforts across international borders. We help to find the exclusive executive who has a stellar track record in the market you want to win, in the country/region you are targeting and who can bridge the gap between their local culture and the needs of US-based shareholders and managers ultimately responsible.
Through our account managers located in our US offices, we ensure that the accountability for the search project remains in the United States; our US-based executive recruiters work closely with in-country consultants during the identification and interview phases.
With a track record of close to 500 successful cross-border executive placements in the Americas, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa our clients gain from our 20-year track-record in cross-border business. We are efficient, discreet and have a long-term perspective.
OUR APPROACH TO GLOBAL EXECUTIVE SEARCH ASSIGNMENTS
Search assignments are handled by internationally-experienced project managers in Washington, DC and Chicago, Il. In addition to being your main point of contact, these project leaders develop the candidate profile tailored to local nuances and customs as well as devising the most appropriate search strategy together with our local partner in your target region.
Throughout the search, our local partners work closely with our corporate research team members located in different time zones to conduct the initial outreach, screening and candidate development.
Your US-based project manager then interviews shortlisted candidates personally to provide a different perspective that serves to round out the local candidate assessment previously conducted. This serves mainly to make sure that candidates are a strong cross-cultural fit to your organization both at home and abroad.
Final interviews with the client take place locally or in the United States. Our process has been carefully honed over many years – hence we provide a placement guarantee of up to a full year!
