da professionals

We support companies in the search for executives and specialists as well as executive assistants either mandate based or performance-based. Our company stands for seriousness, continuity and professionalism. We made a deliberate choice to remain small and personal. Built up over years, our extensive network as well as technical and methodological know-how provide the basis for our quality-oriented service. We apply trend analysis for HR as a tool for individual consulting. We are always ready to go the extra mile for our partners, with the highest levels of personal dedication and enthusiasm.

This has proven itself successful: in 2022, we were named one of the best recruiting firms in the fields of professional search and executive search by the Handelszeitung.

The company

Who we are

Founded in 1979, we are an experienced boutique consultancy with a mission to provide partnership-based custom solutions for our clients and candidates. Personal contact is one of our core philosophies. Built up over the years, our extensive network as well as technical and methodological know-how provide the foundation for our quality-oriented service.

What we do

We focus on the search for managers, technical specialists and executive assistants on an exclusive basis. We use modern tools, such as active sourcing, social and mobile recruiting, both for identifying suitable candidates and personality assessment. We feel obliged to find the right candidates for the company in terms of both human and professional skills. Our regular analysis of HR developments qualify our company as sparring-partner for individual consulting and support of HR responsibilities.

What makes us different

We test the candidates personality as well as their qualifications in a most meticulous way. Through the «Fit of Chemistry» we find the perfect match. We analyse digital and analogue trends in HR marketing and are always up-to-date. Gladly we are your Trendscout.


With Switzerland, Germany and Austria, we focus on the German-speaking regions of Europe. If we are mandated to search across a wider geographical area, we benefit from the know-how provided by our sister company, Dr Thomas A. Biland Executive Search, and from our network membership of IRC Global Executive Search Partners.

Our credo

Integrity and honesty

Discretion, confidentiality and reliability are our top priorities. Our behaviour is ethical and our communication is open, direct and transparent at all times.

Partnership-based cooperation

We are respectful and fair to our clients and candidates at all times. Our proactive approach is geared towards sustainability and the optimum match of candidates and clients.

Our aim is to get to know our clients and candidates by a combination of listening carefully and asking the right questions. This enables us to deliver sustainable solutions, which meet everyone’s needs.

First-class quality through performance and passion

We regard passion and uncompromising commitment as the bedrock for above-average performance. We set high standards and believe that people who take pleasure in their work will deliver the highest quality.

“Fit of chemistry”

We link up businesses with suitable candidates, with due regard to the best possible “fit of chemistry”. The future employee should not only be well equipped for the position in terms of technical skills, but also fit in well with the team and the corporate culture.

Our clients

We focus mainly on SMEs and have a deliberately wide reach in terms of industries and functions. Our clients also include listed corporations, family businesses, investment companies, start-ups, associations, non-profit foundations and universities. Our professional categories cover HR, Finance, MarCom and Sales.

I'd rate those da professionals 5 stars. I appreciated the professional and competent processing of the application as well as the creation of a pleasant, positive and sympathetic discussion situation.
