With a solid reputation for efficient, accurate and high quality work we ensure the success of our clients’ projects.  The PHOENIX EXECUTIVE team thrives on achieving, both for our clients and the talented people we discover across the world. We believe that listening, intelligent questioning, and sharing knowledge leads to great solutions.  We are a lean organisation, with the ability to make decisions fast while maintaining a high level of professionalism.

Executive search firms and corporate recruitment departments turn to us for several reasons.

Organisational Mapping & Talent Pipelining

More and more often clients ask us to map out industry sectors or individual companies in specific geographical areas.  The resulting mapping is used as market information for hiring clients’ talent pipeline, and not necessarily for a current vacancy.

Vera will be happy to inform you of the varied functional and industry sector mapping projects we have successfully completed recently.

Client Testimonials

Bravo et félicitations à toute votre équipe pour ce nouveau succès en attendant d'autres projets de collaboration.

Assignment successfully completed!  XXX will sign tomorrow his contract with YYY. Thank you to all of you for your support and contribution.  Looking forward to another assignment enabling us to partner again.

It was a pleasure meeting you and the team last week. Thank you very much for the training, it was interactive and very helpful.

Finally, I need to make a great and positive comment on your work: X told me that in the last 10 years he had been regularly chased by recruiters and that in most of the case it has been a negative experience for him: lack of discretion and confidentiality, multiple calls, pressure, etc. He said that for the first time for him, he was contacted by really professional and discrete people. 

So thank you ... for a job well done.

In brief, from our external candidates most of them were really interesting and 4 very interesting, with XXX as a “shining star”. I will honestly be surprised if she will not get the job at the end. So once again, thank you for great work!

Besten Dank für die gute Zusammenarbeit. Wir waren mit dem Prozess, den gelieferten Rechercheergebnissen und der „Termintreue“ sehr zufrieden.

Freundliche Grüsse aus der Schweiz und auf ein andermal

Just a quick note to let you know that XXX has successfully been recruited by YYY and will start his new role on Sept 15th.

Many thanks for your support in this assignment.

Many thanks for the DA and many thanks for your immediate action.

Congratulations to you and all the team for the work done. It helped me a lot in a critical situation and I won't forget it.

Thanks for your support and flexibility the past two days. The girls were really pleased with the training having rated it an 8 out of 10. ;-)

Ich wollte Dich hiermit lediglich wissen lassen, dass ich Euch nicht vergessen habe und immer noch dankbar bin für die gute Projektbearbeitung.

Just to let you know that XXX has accepted the offer from YYY and starts this month!

Thank you to you and the team who worked on this recruitment.

Thank you, Phoenix, from the U.S.-based team as well!  Although we didn’t have an opportunity to meet in person, I enjoyed working with you and want to thank you for the work you’ve done for us. I also find your enthusiasm, responsiveness, and general demeanor very pleasant to work with.

I hope we have another opportunity in the future to engage again.
