High Tech | Communication
The speed of changes is unrelenting: today’s leading edge can quickly become outdated tomorrow, with carefully constructed barriers to entry quickly swept aside or circumvented and even industry giants quickly toppled. Many of these developments are visible first in the United States, the most competitive and open of all markets. The United States’ open attitude to change makes it a microcosmos of trends, which can quickly result in newly dominant companies. Fast movers that position themselves in the U.S. can gain a front row glimpse of global trends that will shape their international operations in coming years. Our extensive experience enables us to help our clients identify and recruit executives who have the experience, track record, intellectual curiosity and international mindset to drive a multicultural organization in this environment.
EXECUTIVE RECRUITING AND CORPORATE DEVELOPMENT
Executive recruiting in High Tech and Communication are not an isolated Human Resources issue. The recruitment of any executive responsible for a P&L and his/her team is the key factor determining success or failure in foreign markets. Selecting transformational leaders is the most far-reaching decision executives, owners and shareholders can make - it is the key to the development and implementation of a sustainable, growth-focused business strategy.
