A few reference cases

  • General Manager for sourcing office, automotive & aerospace

    Our client from Bavaria supplies well-known German OEMs with prototypes and small series (mainly plastic components). In order to source these components, the company operates a sourcing office in Ningbo (south of Shanghai). Due to an unexpected change in leadership, we had to find a replacement quickly. Within 6 weeks, our client had selected his new general manager. Within 10 weeks, the new general manager had already taken up office. We are delighted to congratulate our client as well as the new general manager and wish both much success in the future.

  • General Manager for Joint Venture, Automotive

    Our client had a few special requirements for a joint venture with a very famous Chinese OEM. Challenges surrounding automotive joint ventures are well-known throughout the industry these days. Those special requirements did add a fair share to our motivation and within three short rounds, we had identified the right candidate. He soon started to work. We congratulate both of them and wish them a lot of success in China.

  • Plant manager, automotive industry

    Our client set up a new plant in Shenyang. In order to deliver European quality in China and to maintain high standards, we were hired to find a qualified plant manager. Our client found what he was looking for among our pre-selected candidates and he was very proud to have his SoP as originally planned. We wish them much success in northern China and congratulate both our client and the new plant manager.

  • Technical director for factory

    An industrial company with a staff of more than 6,000 operates a factory in China with more than 100 employees. For over two years, the right future technical director simply could not be found. Our customer was very happy about the quality of our pre-selection and managed to find the right technical director quickly.

  • General manager for a sales organization, automotive & aerospace

    For more than 15 years, a globally active company with products in the high-tech segment has been successful on the Chinese market. In order to increase this company’s market position, we set out to find an able general manager with experience in this niche market. After a short time, we identified very good candidates with strong sales backgrounds. We are delighted to congratulate our client as well as their new general manager on a bright future in China.
