Data Analytics & Deep Tech

Artificial intelligence is one of the most revolutionary technologies of our time. Digital processes have long since ceased to simply define our contacts with customers, they now impact every aspect of the value chain. Data is the driving force behind every successful digital business. In this fascinating environment, we have in recent years successfully implemented a large number of AI-specific assignments for companies of many sizes in many sectors. Our network in this field allows us to reach out to the right individuals throughout Europe. Our involvement in Germany’s largest AI network, Bundesverband Künstliche Intelligenz, underpins our focus in this area.

Consulting and services companies are confronted by ever more complex strategic and-organizational challenges. Sophisticated customers expect a broad service portfolio and individual solutions at the highest level.

With well over 20 years of experience in filling partnership positions and recruiting for expert roles, we have a deep understanding of the specific requirements of this industry, not to mention the peerless network we have established over this time.
