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. Finding leaders that can take a firm to success despite location or sector is not an easy feat in an age where executives are increasingly selective about their future employers. This is essentially why AIMS International has spread itself across all continents with more than 90 offices in around 50 countries.

AIMS International is and that is our biggest advantage.” Continue reading “EUROPEAN CEO presents Daniel Ekberg” »
