Our Profile

As an independent executive search and advisory firm working across industries since 2000, we are committed to offering candidates and clients the highest quality of service, as well as upholding impeccable professional standards.

Unlike over 95% of executive search firms in Germany, in this very unregulated industry where standards vary, we are very proud to be members of the AESC. The AESC is the only global association for the executive search industry and rigorously regulates its members in terms of standards and ethics:

“AESC members operate at the highest standard of the executive search and leadership consulting profession worldwide.”

Höchsmann and Company has provided reliable executive search and consultancy services to our clients for 20 years and places special emphasis on consistency and loyalty.

We have successfully concluded many hundreds of assignments, fulfilling mandates for a wide range of company sizes and sectors, both nationally and internationally.
