  • "Working with Caroline has been both a pleasure and a success as she combines a fine human approach with very efficient professional skills. Able to grasp every details of a complex request and to make it simple but efficient, Caroline is offering all along the search and selection process, good connections, active support combined with a agreeable, fine and friendly advice. Thanks to the above, results of different searches Caroline carried out for me over the several years, have been always fruitful and far above standards.
    In conclusion: I strongly recommend Caroline as she will be the right partner if you want to recruit solid and efficient team members or partners"

    Didier Carraud, Director Europe, NAVTEQ NOKIA
  • "I retained Caroline Frisenberg to conduct a high profile General Manager search for our business. I have been extremely impressed with the way in which Caroline ran the search process and with the quality of the candidates she has presented and her ability to deliver on time. Many other recruiters rely only, or too much, on their existing data. Caroline did a thorough analysis of our company and recognized our needs and the person, character and background most suited to the role. She tailored the research matching our business model, covering the entire market, which generated excellent results. I would definitely recommend Caroline Frisenberg for high-end retained executive search, and I will use her again for all future search mandates."

    Marco Repetto, Chief Executive Officer, UNITEX Group
  • "We have been working with Caroline for several years now. She has successfully recruited several highly skilled software engineers who remain a great asset to our company. I believe a key to her successful recruitment for us is that she has really taken the time to understand the type of person needed not only for the role but also for the company. Caroline is always personable and professional to work with. She has gained a strong understanding of our business requirements and is dedicated to candidate care. She is persistent and thorough in her searches, taking the time to properly meet with and interview all candidates. All of this is reflected in her ability to present suitable, quality candidates and to facilitate successful long-term placement."
