Our Approach to Executive Search Consulting
Successful executive search consulting requires a thorough analysis of the client’s situation. It includes the present market position, internal and external structures as well as strategic aspects. This usually results in a proposal of how to approach the problem, including a detailed job description, candidate profile and target companies. Together with our client, we define the specific scope and nature of our consulting engagement.
The systematic search represents the core of our consulting work. For our clients, it is important to know that our independence provides a maximum degree of search potential. Thorough research and personal discussions with industry experts provide us with the necessary information to identify qualified executives for the position to be filled. Our client is regularly kept informed about our efforts.
The appraisal of qualified candidates takes into account not only education and personal characteristics, but above all the professional track record.
Once the best qualified candidates have been identified, written reports are submitted to our client followed by personal meetings, which we also attend. These meetings are usually held at our offices, primarily for confidentiality reasons.
Once an agreement in principal has been reached, we will check references with former superiors, peers and direct reports.
In addition, we offer a background and reputation check, including verification of academic degrees.
