Their thorough understanding of both our sectors and our business set them apart from the competition.

"I worked with Florian de Cormis when our organisation needed a senior executive to address a difficult dispute with one of our clients based in South Africa. We chose Florian because of his extensive international professional network and track record in the Energy & Utilities sector. He is easy to work with and made a real effort to understand our business and how we operate. He was sensitive to our needs and quickly understood the specific competencies potential candidates had to possess. I particularly appreciated how closely he worked with us, maintaining regular contact throughout and even beyond a successful placement."
