Executive & Board Search

hartmann consultants is committed to sustainable executive and board search advice that meets the needs of clients and candidates of today and tomorrow.

We have been offering needs-based, trust-based recruitment since 2008 and act as a value-added partner for our clients and candidates. One of our overriding goals is to accompany you in a forward-looking and innovative manner in the digital transformation.

We focus on the international fashion and lifestyle industry and serve the growing interest in the holistic consumer goods market.


For us, connecting competence means putting together what fits together. This is essential, especially when it comes to executive search, if we are to fill strategically crucial positions in the best possible way. Thanks to our excellent market network, which has grown over the years, and our industry expertise, we ensure that we find executives and top specialists whose skills match the individual needs of our clients.


In the trusting work with our clients, our managing partners are also always in contact with the supervisory bodies and have an excellent network of active and former top managers, entrepreneurs and experts at their disposal.


If you want to combine competencies, you first have to identify competencies: Our Digital Leadership Assessment, a tool based on a competency model developed exclusively for hartmann consultants, helps us to do this. It combines the Jobfidence® potential analysis process and a psychologically sound in-depth interview in a tailor-made way.
