A trustful and long-standing relation grants the highest level of cross-border executive search service for 15+ years
How InterSearch Ww members fulfil hiring needs globally within the electronic equipment industry

Success story by Juhani Konu, Managing Partner of InterSearch Finland.

The Client

The client company is a producer of electronic equipment with 10+ manufacturing facilities in Europe, Asia, and the US, serving the global market with a turnover of 500+ million euros per year.

The Process

InterSearch Finland established a long-term relationship with the key decision-maker, first meeting her as a candidate, then as a client when she became a decision-maker, and chose InterSearch Finland as a preferred supplier.

Since then, InterSearch Finland has continued to support the company first with local searches and then through international assignments.

InterSearch Finland closely cooperates with the local InterSearch member where the hiring need is and shares their deep understanding of the client’s corporate culture and requirements.

The local search is conducted by an appointed consultant with proven expertise in the industry, and InterSearch Finland is involved in monitoring the smoothness of the process.

With such an approach, InterSearch Finland could support finding the best-fit managers for the open roles even during the challenging COVID times.


11 filled positions throughout the 7 years of cooperation in Finland, Sweden, Czech Republic, Poland, Romania  (and Russia until 2020)

International Roles hired:

  • Managing Director to multiple countries
  • CFO
  • HR Director
  • Sales Director
  • Marketing Manager
  • Controller

Client’s perspective

There is a deep trust in the Finnish consultant that has been built during the 15 years of cooperation.

Highly professional and skilled partners in the countries where the searches were executed.

InterSearch is a no-nonsense partner, members have a deep understanding of their local markets and inform already at the beginning of the project about the possibilities and the difficulties. In such a way the candidates’ profiles and compensation packages can be tailor-made to grant the success of the hiring.
