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 has a natural ability to quickly build rapport with the client and a quick grasp of the essentials of a piece of recruitment as well as in particular the personalities attached to it - to me key in working together with any searcher. Marion however is not just any searcher but a pleasure to work with. She provides me with comprehensive and concise summaries of her candidates and is very responsive. I really appreciate Marion delivering at all times.
