Executive Search

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 tailor-made 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.

Executive Effectiveness & Succession Planning

Amrop Austria 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 companies can succeed in attracting and developing the best managers.

Amrop Global

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. 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. In our Code of Professional Practice, we commit ourselves to always actively seeking a presentation of diverse candidates.

Our international organisation of more than 60 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.

Amrop Local

At national level, Amrop Austria has been successfully active on the Austrian market for over 40 years. Here, too, we are living diversity: Our company is owned and led by Gabriele Gradnitzer and Sandra Schrögenauer. In addition, we have supported the support program for women and supervisory boards called “Zukunft Frauen” – for several years. This is one of many reasons why we have an extensive pool of current candidate profiles. We have known for decades and have accompanied them throughout their essential career steps. We are also available 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.

  • Awareness raising:

We show the benefits of balanced executive teams in management.

Diversity is clearly measurable. When searching for, and preselecting executives, we act based on our clients’ guidelines; should we, in some cases, not be able to meet these due to market conditions, we will provide a detailed explanation.
