Executive Search

CORNFELD is a leading Swiss executive search boutique. We are trusted advisors in the targeted direct approach and recruitment of leaders for the senior and top management. In addition we support leading companies in the forward-looking development and maintenance of function-specific succession solutions.

CORNFELD meets the highest standards in the executive search industry, as internationally recognized by the Association of Executive Search Consultants (AESC). In surveys and the media, CORNFELD is regularly listed as one of the best executive search companies in Switzerland. At the same time, we are committed to promoting women on boards of directors and support the Code of Conduct of the Swiss Employers’ Association.

In addition to the short-term search and selection of executives, we support companies in medium-term succession planning. Through CORNFELD Succession we identify potential successors and implement specific succession pools with excellent leaders, which we maintain exclusively and with foresight for clearly defined management roles. CORNFELD Succession ensures that delicate succession planning can be prepared and implemented discreetly and soundly.

Today we look back on 1/4 century of trustful cooperation with decision makers of many global leading companies. Our success in recent years is a benchmark for our future work: even with digitalization CORNFELD remains a primarily human – and not data-dominated – executive search firm with an excellent service portfolio and an incomparable, personal professionalism and commitment. When personality, special skills and talent are the focus of demanding succession solutions, our decades of recruitment expertise and competence come into their own. We are constantly looking for outstanding leaders for demanding top management roles. Finding and promoting talented individuals is our core task.

CORNFELD’s success is based on value-oriented action, a high degree of commitment and efficiency, and a professional know-how and network of contacts that has grown over the years. Through our LeadersGate network, we we support selected leaders individually in their professional development.
