Testimonials

Michael Neumann

EVP Sales & Customer Development
ZF Group

“Let me re-emphasize my appreciation for the outstanding search support. We was able to onboard some true results/goal-orientated Global Sales and Business Leaders with both Sales and Program Management experience. I am very pleased with the jointly selected candidates and especially with the performance our new hires are delivering. Looking forward working with the team at Nexus in the near future.”

Mark Stidham

Founding Partner
Spectrum Management

“I have had the experience working with Nexus whilst holding senior management roles at a major Tier 1 automotive supplier. They was extremely easy to work with; very professional; very flexible in managing both my schedule and the candidate schedules. Most importantly, their efforts generated multiple candidates who were extremely qualified. Any one of the candidates presented were capable of handling the job opening. The only thing left for us to do was pick the best!”

Gerard Cordonnier

Board Member

“I have been working intensively with the Directors of Nexus for the past five years. They are professional, organized and successful in finding industry leading talent. They have been instrumental in supporting me to restructure a global finance & purchasing team with world class talent and are always ready to find solutions in order to present the best candidate.”

Vsevolod Perets

HR Business Partner – EU & SA

“During a very challenging assignment, Nexus proved themselves as highly-level professional, capable to present the candidates within the fast changing requirements and extremely tight market. Their consitent communication with us and with the candidates is simply outstanding. I would like also to admit their ability to understand EXACTLY what the company is expecting from the successful candidate, which makes the whole process of working with them very efficient.”
