Executive search plays an essential role in increasing diversity among executives and thus ensuring the consistent implementation of the diversity strategy in the long term. Our search processes for clients are tailored to meet the requirements of both their diversity strategy and the regulatory environment. At the same time, clients can rest assured that we will do our utmost to find the optimum fit between search profile and candidate profile.
Candidates, on the other hand, can be sure that all our search and selection processes conform to the principles of equality.
Amrop Jenewein is firmly convinced of the advantages of having a strong demographic mix within the management team and we advise and assist our customers on the road to achieving this goal. In addition to executive search, our service portfolio also includes executive effectiveness and succession planning. Only by implementing an integrated diversity strategy can companies succeed in attracting and developing the best managers.
At Amrop, we define ourselves as pioneers in our industry when it comes to promoting women: With Annika Farin as Global Chair and Brigitte Arhold as Chief Operating Officer, two women are forming the top of our global group of companies. As a member of the Management Board, in addition to her role as Global Chair, Annika Farin holds the position of Management Board member for Marketing & Communications. With Oana Ciornei, Board Member for Digital & Innovation, and Marie Högstedt, Board Member for People & Culture, two other central board positions are held by women. Amrop’s leadership future is also female: in our global talent program, Amrop Explorers, 8 of the 9 selected future leaders are women.
(Gender) diversity is also a regular topic of Amrop studies and case studies. In our Code of Professional Practice, we commit ourselves to always actively seeking a presentation of diverse candidates.
Our international network of 66 Amrop offices in over 50 countries worldwide enables us to cooperate easily internationally and thus to give our clients a timely and profound insight into the relevant search locations and industries. This way, we are able to quickly locate international female executives in addition to top national candidates and integrate them into the search process.
At the national level, Amrop Jenewein has been successfully active on the Austrian market for over 40 years. Here, too, we are living diversity: our company is led by Mag. Andrea Viehauser and Mag. Günther Tengel. In addition, we have supported “Zukunft Frauen” – a support program for women and supervisory boards – for several years. Not least due to this, we have an extensive pool of current candidate profiles. We haven known for decades and have accompanied them throughout their essential career steps. We are also available for you as coaches and advisors every day.
In summary, our mutual aim should, and must be, to achieve a productive overall atmosphere, to prevent any form of discrimination and to improve equal opportunities. As external consultants, we play an essential role here: Our team of consultants can provide a direct impact on achieving your goals in diversity management.

Boardroom Talent: How can Executive Search do better?
Executive search consultants are extremely discreet; their clients and candidates need them to be. For Amrop’s Eelco van Eijck, one undesirable consequence is that clients lack a clear view of his profession. And that the sector feels insufficient incentive to apply professional and behavioral rules, or develop its quality standard.
The New Shape of Work: Why the Only Way Up is No Longer Up
Any credible career should follow an uninterrupted, upward trajectory, or so the assumption goes. Many hiring organizations, executive search firms and leadership candidates still exercise this kind of ‘up or out’ thinking. Yet a growing number of successful executives are seriously questioning What’s Next.
