EUROPEAN CEO presents Daniel Ekberg

An interview with Daniel Ekberg, President of AIMS International, by EUROPEAN CEO

Having ranked among the top 10 executive search firms worldwide in the past five years, AIMS International must be doing something right. The headhunting firm always gets strong results in global ranking because it has learnt how to crack the recruitment code.

About management stars and meteors

Why do managers succeed in one organization and fail in another?

Managers may ride a roller coaster as they change ship from one organization to another. So do their new employers.

By Maria Shishkova, AIMS International, August 2014
