A household name in the market

Each of us has extensive experience in the communications and executive search profession. It is the passion for corporate affairs, the interest in people and the pleasure in our work that unites us. Personal attention and involvement is our priority.

We know our way around the commercial business community and the public sector and speak the language of the corporate affairs director and the HR manager. We understand people and situations quickly and in a structured manner. This makes it possible to properly assess whether someone is personally and professionally ready for a particular role, permanent or interim. We have already brought many professionals to the next, successful career step and helped organizations to build a professional corporate affairs department.


International network

We are proud to be part of the Corporate Affairs Search Alliance (CASA). A network of like-minded people and specialized agencies in London, Dublin, Düsseldorf, Paris and Washington DC. This means that we also have access to an extensive international candidate network in these markets.
