In more than 25 years, CORNFELD has developed from an owner-managed executive search boutique into an internationally successful management consultancy firm, with partners in Germany and China.

We support industrial, technology and service companies in executive search and succession management. And we advise individual leaders with our services in executive career coachings. Over many years we have built up a very solid knowledge, network and sensorium for talented executives.

CORNFELD was founded by Harry Houthuijse in 1996. At that time, Harry Houthuijse was Managing Director of Peat Marwick Executive Search in Zurich, a renowned spin-off of the KPMG Group, which he led for 12 years. Following the reputation of the Schindler Group, he later took over responsibility for Corporate Human Resources Europe at the world’s leading elevator manufacturer and built up Global Talent Management for Schindler.

For excellent succession solutions, it takes more than a strong commitment and reputation. CORNFELD offers its clients very solid structures, a great deal of consulting experience and maturity, commitment and an outstanding sense of talent.

In a quarter of a century, CORNFELD has supported many listed and multinational corporations, family offices, private equity firms and leading SMEs in countless searches and delicate succession issues, both nationally and internationally. Today, CORNFELD covers also geographically a large consulting radius with experienced executive search partners and research teams in Switzerland, Germany, India and China.

You can expect more from us.

Leaders for tomorrow.
