Executive Search for Digital Leadership
KAUF Leaders & Ventures was founded in the spring of 2015. We are pioneers in cross-sectoral executive search for digital transformation. Today, digitization is on everyone's lips. However, we know that the real work begins after all the empty phrases have been said.
There are many beliefs about the direction in which companies should transform themselves. KAUF Leaders & Ventures knows who the right managers are to implement digital monetization models and where to find them!
Agility and pressure to innovate require new leadership qualities. Automation, BI and AI, as well as new platform technologies, make specific skills a necessity. Sales and marketing – just as the customer journey – are undergoing massive changes. Demand for the best managers far exceeds supply.
KAUF Leaders & Ventures proactively and continuously identifies the best managers to be found – locally and internationally. We develop management typologies that every company in a transformation process needs. We fill even the most difficult positions from our management clusters. Our analytics make transformative intelligence measurable. This reduces the risks in appointment processes.
