AIMS International Adds New Member Firm in Denmark

October 6, 2022 – Executive search consortium AIMS International has further strengthened its presence in Denmark with the addition of Unique Human Capital. “We are very happy and excited to welcome Jørn Duhn and the entire Unique Human Capital team to AIMS International,” said Dimitris Kleftakis, president of AIMS. “Denmark and the wider Nordic region has always been an important market for AIMS International. With our new partners we share the same values ​​and strategic goals and we are convinced that we will have a very successful and long-term cooperation. I would like to personally thank the whole team in Denmark for the excellent cooperation so far and Titti Hammarling, our EVP EMEA, for her instrumental role in making this happen.”

“We are determined to offer the best possible service to our many globally oriented clients, and that meant that joining a truly international network of partners became a growing priority for us,” said Mr. Duhn, CEO of Unique Human Capital. “It helps us when recruiting talent from other countries, but, at the same time, increasing numbers of foreign companies have shown keen interest in Danish talent and expertise in a range of industries. We want to help them more effectively too.”

Mr. Duhn says that his team did a lot of research over the last few years to find the right network of partners. AIMS International had, in the meantime, been looking for a Danish partner, and, from its point of view, Unique Human Capital ticked all of the right boxes. “We have a strong front office, made up of industry experts and vetted consultants, combined with a very robust back office, where we use proven tools and processes. These allow us to offer our clients the best possible support,” said Mr. Duhn.

The company is one of the oldest Danish companies in the business and has extensive experience serving the kinds of industries that AIMS International supports on a global scale. “We are especially strong in life sciences, manufacturing, and retail,” Mr. Duhn said. “The combination of our operational strengths and industry knowledge has proven to be a perfect match for AIMS International.”

Denmark is an important market with many international knowledge-intensive companies with cross-border recruitment needs. “With an exclusive partner in this country, our global executive search firm alliance has strengthened its presence in Scandinavia,” IRC Global said.

Denmark has the world’s 13th most competitive economy and Europe’s eighth-ranked, according to the World Economic Forum. Companies headquartered in the country include A.P. Møller, Danske Bank, ISS, United Shipping & Trading Co., Novo Nordisk, Wrist Group, Carlsberg, DONG Energy, Arla Foods, and Danish Crown.
