Global executive search firms often fall victim to the relentless pressures forcing them to expand continuously, leaving their processes rushed and industrialized. In the highly competitive market for executive talent, however, clients’ and candidates’ needs call for more time, care, persistence, and passion than such a process can provide.

Truly successful executive search depends on the ability to assess personalities and motivations, to evaluate experience and competence, to understand different corporate cultures, and on the passion for the perfect fit. This endeavor requires sensitivity and experience, full personal involvement in the process, and a high appreciation of lasting, trusting relationships.

After ten years with large international executive search firms, I founded schwesinger+cie. to be able to provide both my clients and my candidates with this commitment to truly tailormade search.
