Our History

Amrop Jenewein

Amrop Jenewein was originally founded by Jean-Francois Jenewein, a pioneer of Austrian executive search, in 1979. For more than four decades, we have built trusted relationships with clients and candidates, consistently delivering senior executive assignments at the highest levels across many industries. Our expertise revolves around executive search, leadership services and board consulting. Amrop Jenewein stands for 40 years of local and regional know-how.

In 2003, managing partner Günther Tengel took over the company in a management buyout. In April 2005, he also became Chairman of Amrop CEE. Having rejoined Amrop Jenewein as Associate Partner in March 2017, Andrea Viehauser was appointed Managing Director in April 2019. 


Amrop Global

Entrepreneurial spirit was the driving force behind the establishment of Amrop in 1979. At the time, to unite leading local search boutiques into a global network was considered an alternative to an integrated organisation. And this reads true today more than ever before.

With 60+ offices in 50+ countries, Amrop is the largest executive search organisation in the world. Key steps have been taken to standardise processes and norms and to set up an integrated project database. A global Amrop university was established with the goal of safeguarding the transfer of knowledge. These challenges are all based on a shared commitment to values such as entrepreneurial passion and long-term partnerships.

Nowadays, we are the market leader in many regions and we document our presence on these markets with a joint logo called Nexus. The colours represent the various areas of our expertise worldwide. You, as the client, are in the heart of Nexus, where all your needs are focussed. Wherever you are – you are the centre of our attention!
