Executive Search

A cookbook is no substitute for a head chef. Just the same, databases and social media are no substitute for executive search experts.

We offer our clients uncompromising service – no cutting corners. For one thing, this means that our search doesn’t begin until we’ve acquired a precise understanding of the strategy, structure, market situation and cultural particularities of the organisation and developed a clear objective with our customer.

After that, it means initiating a high quality, well-grounded search process that meets the expectations of both the company and the top candidates.

We always start with a comprehensive background check. Our general strategy is to compile a customised target list of preselected candidates and contact them directly. Later on, our seasoned consultants conduct two interviews in order to assess not only how qualified the candidates are but also how culturally compatible and motivated they are for potential employers. Finally, we compile detailed analysis reports on each candidate we present. It’s a demanding process. But you have high standards, and so do we.


The top controlling and governing bodies of a company can’t be recruited by a standard process. Particularly in the healthcare sector, management, supervisory and administrative board members are expected to meet very high and wide-ranging criteria.

Candidates must be capable of overseeing the company’s strategic and operational challenges, as well as have extensive experience based on a long and successful career. They need to be culturally compatible and have access to networks and ecosystems strategically significant for the company’s growth and development.

Most of all, trust and integrity form the indispensable foundation for assembling an effective board.

HealthCorp Partners recruits the talented members that healthcare companies and organisations need for their top supervisory and governing boards. Following an intensive joint analysis, we develop objectives and detailed scenarios. Relying especially on our personal network, we identify those individuals who could give a decisive strategic direction to the future development of the organisation.
