About us

We don’t hunt heads

At Smague & Partner, people are the focus. This is why it is particularly important to us to find the right personality for every vacant management position – quickly, loyally and result-oriented.

As executive search specialists for family offices and private equity, we rely on the individual industry experience of our consultants and their extensive network of experts. For all the professional qualities of the candidates, we understand the corporate culture of our clients as well as the personal requirements of the position to be filled as the benchmark for a tailor-made match. In short: the chemistry simply has to be right.

“I know from personal experience what drives an entrepreneur. I know the development and growth phase of a company as well as its maturity phase from my own personal experience. Being an entrepreneur is not a job title. It is the mindset of people who want to change the future.”
