The direct way to the best employees for your business

ISG Executive Search is the competence center for complex search processes for management and key positions in the national and international environment. Since 1999, this area counts as one of our specialties and is a considerable part of the company success story.

By Executive Search and Headhunting, we mean all search and selection processes at the first, second management levels and key expert positions. Each search process begins with a detailed analysis of our Client’s strategy and the responsibilities for the position that are derived from that.

We support our Clients in their strategic development by selecting the best employees for management and key positions. During the last years we have worked together with a wide range of satisfied clientele from start-up companies to multinational giant corporations and one of our secret to success is that we relate to our Clients as Partners whose satisfaction is bound up with our own therefore we customize the searching process to the needs and preferences of our partner.


Highest quality: the supervision of projects by Senior Consultants, who have the corresponding long-term professional and management experience to guarantee our Clients the highest confidentiality and professionalism.

Market and industry expertise: Our long-standing nationally and internationally operating Research and Consultant team possesses excellent market knowledge and provides our consultants targeted and current information on companies and candidates.
