CEO / Chief Executive Officer

No position has a greater impact on an organisation’s success than that of the CEO, the Chief Executive Officer. The profile must be perfectly in line with the strategy and plans of the organisation, regardless of whether the CEO is promoted internally or is recruited externally. The impact of a new CEO takes the organisation to the next level, enabling corporate ambitions to be achieved. Specific skills are required to motivate and inspire the entire team or attract new talent. In addition, the new leader must be able to understand, strengthen and change the organisational culture. A seamless connection with the company is often the starting point for change, with the CEO thinking not only in terms of shareholder value but also in terms of social value.


A clear vision, inspiring leadership and the ability to connect are the most important qualities that a Chief Executive Officer must possess as the standard bearer of an organisation – regardless of the size of the organisation or the industry in which it operates. In addition, the CEO must play a role in the value proposition of a company, focusing not only on shareholder management but, equally importantly, on stakeholder management. That requires passion and professionalism on the one hand and the right knowledge, skills and genuine commitment on the other. Real leadership determines the difference between success and failure. We are convinced of that. As an executive search firm, we are keen to make an important contribution to finding the perfect person for the position of Chief Executive Officer.
