Headhunting is not about fishing –
it is about diving and getting wet

I started mrd Personnel Search in 1994 and still have fun! Because my business model is based on person-to-person relationships I never considered growing into a large company. A Swiss native, I grew up in Zug and spent over 20 years living and working in South Africa/USA.
By living and working in some exotic places I developed strong out-of-the-box thinking coupled with a hands-on approach. My Human Resources is backed by an IPM degree and includes staff development/training, as well as transferring corporate processes to local environments.
Other activities include:
  • Founder/President of HR Services Zug (www.hrsz.ch), 2005-2015
  • Past-President of BPW (Business and Professional Women) Club Zug, 2004-2008
  • Mentor for students at the University of St. Gallen (HSG), 2003-2010

    Marion does not waste time; once she has a brief of what is required she will provide candidates aligned to that brief. I can highly recommend her for her tireless effort to find the right solution. She did not stop until the right placement was accomplished. Her professional manner in pre-selection and her clear understanding of customer business objectives significantly reduces time in application screening. It is just a pleasure to work with such a professional and I really value her outstanding interpersonal skills. I am looking forward to our continuing partnership.

    Marion is a true professional in recruiting, understanding and satisfying the customer’s needs. In the building a new fully fledged European head office from scratch, she was doing what was necessary to meet those needs. She was not bound by a time clock engaging with stakeholders throughout different time zones. She is one of my favourite recruiters because she is not only comparing the skill set with the job description but also weights the fitting of personality and motivation.
