Maik Richter adds: “We have always listened to our customers and let their business needs dictate our growth ambitions. It makes great sense to expand our firm's reach beyond the DACH and Asia-Pacific regions as we continue to operate in increasingly complex international networks; most of our clients have business interests spanning the globe, and the talent pool has become global at the same time.
Guy, Iain, Richard and Jörg are proven and successful senior consultants, professionals with long years of international leadership experience who readily align with our approach to cross-border executive search. This expansion will also provide additional sourcing capacities in the United States and Europe, to further augment our internal research capability. So far, we specifically bridged the Europe-Asia axis, but with these new additions to our senior consultant team, we open a new chapter in truly global executive search for our clients!”
JR Cape Management Consulting Group was formed by Managing Directors Dr. Ralph Jauss and Maik Richter in 2005. The key ingredient to the company’s growth and success has been its concept of serving multinational clients exclusively on dedicated retained search assignments, with a special focus on the Europe and APAC regions. Companies who retain the services of JR Cape consistently re-hire the firm.
