CT Executive Search: Placement of Freelance Industry Specialists

Working on foreign markets beyond the European Union is complicated. Volatile demand, exchange rate fluctuations and bureaucracy are familiar challenges, and sanctions and protectionist measures are increasingly being added. Countries such as Russia, Ukraine or Iran therefore require a continuous adaptation of business models.

A lot of questions arise especially when entering new markets. Can the market be effectively served by importers and dealers? Which partners are suitable? Is it worth setting up a representative office in the country? Does localization make sense, and if so, what will it look like in concrete terms?

Very few small and medium size companies have the internal resources to create an appropriate market entry and development strategy.

In this situation, companies often resort to consulting firms. Their strength lies in data collection and preparation, but their recommendations for action are often generic. The practical implementation remains with the company.

Working with an external industry expert on a freelance basis is an alternative to mandating a consulting firm. The freelancer is aware of the concrete business environment of the respective company from his own insider experience - for example due to previous work for a competitor, a relevant distributor or a company from the target industry.

We Place Project Expertise in Every Industry

Such a freelancer is well set to quickly conduct a well-founded analysis and develop a realistic action plan. He can also manage the implementation, if the company so desires.

CT Executive Search specializes in the placement of suitable freelance specialists to assist companies in special situations – e.g. when entering into or restructuring within foreign markets.
