The managing partners

Dr Philip Wenger

He is particularly experienced in the industries of Consumer Retail and Luxury, Education and Not-For-Profit, Financial Services/Insurances, Logistics & Supply Chain as well as Industry (especially machinery and plant engineering) and Private Equity.

In his doctoral thesis at the Otto Suhr Institute for Political Science at the Freie Universität Berlin, he dealt in detail with mismatch issues when filling positions in corporates.

"I have decided to become a headhunter because it is a profession that never gets monotonous. You constantly have to deal with new things: exciting assignments, challenging candidates and clients, and you bring both sides together step by step. And when you think you've seen it all, you meet another personality, a character, a situation that enriches you once more."

Dr Philip Wenger brings +20 years of professional experience and his great interest in internationality & cultures to bear in the context of global mandates.

The truth is on the pitch.
