And Sought-After Today for Good Reasons

Founded in 1994 in Hamburg, GET AHEAD was one of Germany’s first function-specific recruitment firms with a focus on Finance, Accounting and Controlling.

Since then HR, sales and marketing, production and technology, IT and professional services as well as purchasing and logistics have also each become a permanent component of the company's portfolio. 

GET AHEAD has industry experts in consumer goods and trade, chemical industry, pharmaceutical and health care, renewable energies, mechanical and plant engineering, professional services and manufacturing.

Today GET AHEAD is known across industries for its effective selection process, which starts with the assignment of a mandate, continues with a precise analysis of a given market to the tailor made search for leaders and specialists and extends to providing support during a candidate’s initial training phase. In addition GET AHEAD has become well known through its international contacts and mandates. In 2007 GET AHEAD opened a branch in Paris, France and in 2012 a second foreign branch in Charlotte, NC USA.

In addition to its highly specialized executive search, GET AHEAD is also respected for its interim-management services. Part of the company's philosophy is the importance of long term working relationships informed by mutual trust with customers and candidates.

Based in Hamburg our track record includes well-known large corporations as well as small and mid sized companies.
