Our History

Amrop Austria

Since September 2022, Gabriele Gradnitzer and Sandra Schrögenauer, two long-time executive search professionals,  have been Managing Partners of Amrop Austria. They are thus returning to Amrop Austria in the role of owners, where they were previously active in management roles for many years.

Gabriele and Sandra took over from the previous Managing Partner Günther Tengel, who had managed the company under the brand Amrop Jenewein for almost 20 years.

Amrop Austria 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, conducting executive search assignments at the highest levels across diverse industries with all our passion. Our expertise lies in executive search, leadership services and board consulting. Amrop Austria stands for more than 40 years of local and international know-how.


Amrop Global

Entrepreneurial spirit was the driving force behind the establishment of Amrop in 1977. At the time, to unite leading local search boutiques into a global organisation was the alternative to a fully integrated one-firm-concept. And this applies today more than ever.

With 60+ offices in 50+ countries, Amrop is one of 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. The global Amrop University was established together with IMD based in Lausanne and with Hyperisland with the goal to ensure knowledge transfer and innovation. 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 in 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 addressed. Wherever you are – you are our focus!
