"We have grown accustomed to the recognition as a top executive search firm," chuckles Stephan H. Aschenbrenner, CEO of EO Executives. His company has received the award from FOCUS-Business magazine for the seventh consecutive time. "However, the appreciation expressed in this recognition continues to be a remarkable signal for our consultants. It confirms our distinct approach in filling critical leadership positions," he emphasizes.

For the award, FOCUS-Business collaborated with Statista to survey over 2,200 HR executives, HR service providers, as well as 2,000 candidates online. The outcome incorporated their recommendations and experiences, such as the quality of candidate profiles and positions offered, the speed of filling vacancies, and the communication during and after the phase.

The success of EO Executives in Germany commenced in 2011. The headquarters have since been relocated from England to Germany, and the German subsidiary has acquired shares of the British parent company. EO Executives employs its unique executive-Intro® process for the search, selection, and presentation of candidates, ensuring that over 96% of candidates places by EO succeed in their new positions. This has established EO as a pioneer in state-of-the-art systems in executive search. 

EO is also renowned for its profound industry expertise. The company consistently prioritizes the formation of highly competent consultant networks across various sectors. And EO Executives is expanding. The team at EO now comprises 21 consultants in Germany and an additional 13 in other countries.

"Our motto is 'Results through People'. At EO, we assist our clients in a rapidly envolving work environment to build the best leadership team they have ever had," defines Aschenbrenner the objective of EO.
