CT Executive Search recruits Executives in Eastern Europe

Several countries in Eastern Europe have been firmly integrated into international supply chains for decades. Countries such as Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, and Romania are important production sites for Western European and American companies, which benefit from favorable conditions and well-trained, highly skilled personnel.

Companies from practically all manufacturing industries are represented. However, the automotive, consumer goods, pharmaceutical, construction, and mechanical engineering sectors are especially active throughout the Eastern European region. Growing purchasing power in Eastern Europe has also made the region an important destination for international retailers.

Today, Poland and the Czech Republic, in particular, as well as Hungary and the Baltic republics house local companies that are no longer only successful in their home markets. Whether Latvian IT companies or Polish retailers, many Eastern European companies are now expanding to Western Europe or Russia.

CT Executive Search supports international companies in recruiting executives for their Eastern European locations. In line with the deep integration of Eastern Europe into the supply chain, many of our assignments are production-related. 


Eastern Europe is characterized by its diversity of languages and cultures. German and English are common as business languages; however, the approach and evaluation of potential candidates must take into account local linguistic and cultural pecularities.

CT-Research, therefore, works i.a. with Polish, Hungarian, Russian, and Bulgarian native speakers who are familiar with the respective regional subtleties.
