True is the fastest growing executive search firm with 90% revenue growth YOY according to independent market research firm Hunt Scanlon Media.
“Our expansion into Germany comes at a time when U.S.-based firms are actively looking to enter the EMEA market or attract leadership teams with very specific skill sets,” said Andrew Banks, True EMEA Managing Director. “We believe this greater demand signals increased confidence in the U.S., prompting companies to ramp up their global growth with high quality executives leading the charge. Sam is a tremendous asset and we are very pleased to have him join us,” Banks added.
