What we do

Our business is Executive Search. We recruit for international executive and high-level specialist positions.
We focus on lifestyle markets: industries such as fashion, sports, shoes, jewellery, accessories, cosmetics and home living.
Our expertise is selection. We build on professional research, excellent background knowledge about people, companies and the market and, last but not least, professional diagnostics tools.

We match the right people with the right positions for you. This is what SUITS. stands for.

Why choose us

Having the best people is the key factor in rising above the competition. We seek, find and win over these decision-makers for your business.

In this age of social media, identifying candidates is no longer the problem. The art is in finding the right approach, assessing how they fit and winning them over for a particular role. This is where our expertise lies.

As industry specialists we know the market. We know how the market is developing and what demands this entails for decision-makers. This makes us competent sparring partners – for clients and candidates alike.

Personally we are very well connected and have excellent access to the movers and shakers of the industry. Our systematic approach enables us to complete our searches as efficiently and quickly as possible.

In doing so, we always remain aware of our great degree of responsibility. Conscientiousness, reliability and commitment form the basis of the long-term cooperation for which we strive.

Not least, SUITS. embodies the standard we set for ourselves: that everything fits just right. For the company and the candidate alike. So ultimately everybody wins.

Who loves us

We work for globally active brands and international retailers as well as family businesses and local players. Other clients include fashion industry service providers such as management consultancies, agencies and media as well as private equity firms.

How we work

Our starting point is recruiting for positions with six-figure annual salaries. We generally agree a fixed fee. We only work on an exclusive basis, and not for performance-related compensation.

We only take on mandates we can actually fulfil. Our goal is to complete the project within 90 days. We only work for clients who can keep up with our tempo.

A detailed job profile forms the basis of our work. This factors in current and future requirements due to how the market develops as well as the cultural context of the company. This is where our extensive industry expertise pays off.

We submit a substantiated recommendation. Using tools we have developed ourselves, we are able to see a candidate’s potential as well as their current position. We will also gather references on request.

We adopt a systematic and efficient approach. Regular updates ensure maximum transparency. We organise all meetings and travel arrangements.

We donate a fixed percentage of our annual profit to charitable causes. In particular we support a foundation that assists the next generation of talent in the industry, the Wilhelm Lorch-Stiftung.
