VIENNA, Austria – Boyden, a global leader in executive search with more than 70 offices in over 40 countries, announced today that it has launched a new office in Vienna, Austria as part of the firm’s continued Eastern Europe expansion. Boyden appointed market leader Andreas Landgrebe as Managing Director of Boyden Vienna.
“Andreas and his Austria team are tremendous additions to Boyden,” said Trina Gordon, Chairman of Boyden World Corporation. “He brings a first-rate track record in recruiting for top multinationals, particularly in the Technology and Industrial sectors. The combination of Andreas partnering with Joachim Sauter, Boyden’s Managing Director in Prague, will maximize our client potential in a critical region and emerging market.”
Mr. Landgrebe’s expertise lies in strategic consulting in board, national and multinational executive search and management audits in Austria, Central/Eastern Europe and Russia/CIS.
Prior to Boyden, Mr. Landgrebe served as Regional Managing Partner for Austria and Eastern Europe and Chairman of the Global IT/Telecom Practice at two other leading global executive search firms. Previously, he worked at the United Nations in Geneva and set-up and managed an Executive Education Program in Vienna.
Mr. Landgrebe is an elected Board Member of several NPO institutions in Vienna and holds an advanced degree in international law and a postgraduate Master's degree in European Studies from the College of Europe in Bruges/Warsaw.
"Boyden is a terrific solution for global companies operating in Austria and Eastern Europe,” said Mr. Landgrebe. “Particularly during a period of global crisis, it’s critical for organizations to attract and retain the right leaders who will create efficient structures. In the near term, organizations will also have an unusual opportunity to recruit top senior management, and Boyden provides a unique combination of global reach and dedication from the best executive search professionals.”
"With Andreas joining our firm, Boyden is further focusing its service offering on a highly diversified practice in Technology, Automotive and Financial Services sectors,” said Mr. Sauter. “We expect the Central and Eastern European region will recover faster than other developing markets. Many companies and subsidiary organizations will need to adjust their management structures and business strategy to capitalize on the changing landscape.”Boyden's regional operations in Eastern and Central Europe consist of 10 offices with a total of 50 employees that bring impressive experience to execute assigments speaking 13 different languages.
