"Hanover Fox are very customer-oriented and with Mark I felt comfortable and very well understood"

Arburg Limited

Sales Director

World renowned for their design, manufacture and distribution of highly engineered plastic injection moulding machines, Arburg was seeking a talented individual to lead and shape the UK sales function and help to drive the next stage in the company’s development.

Leslie Clauer – HR Manager based at the company’s German headquarters explains:

“I asked my international network for recommendations and was introduced to different executive search consultancies. We were used to working with companies who have a specific focus on the plastics industry, but we decided in this case to work with someone who would look more broadly. Hanover Fox are very customer-oriented and with Mark I felt comfortable and very well understood. He is a pleasure to work with: an excellent listener and not the type who is always trying to tell you about their own experience.”

“Mark had good empathy with people in the organisation. We felt we had the right amount of communication through the project and we liked the reports he produced for each candidate. Some consultancies can try to oversell candidates who we know would not fit with the company, but Mark listened and understood us – and that gave us a good feeling. We also liked the follow-up when the project was finished: after a while Mark called us and asked if everything was ok and if we were satisfied with the service. This is not very common.”

“I would definitely recommend Mark – and Hanover Fox – to others and I would be very happy to work with them again.”

The new Sales Director, Nicolas Stein, speaks highly of his candidate experience:

“Mark’s brief for the role was good; it had enough detail on the opportunity to get me interested and was followed up with a phone call, to give me more information. All my interaction with Mark was great; I felt he was genuinely interested in me. I believe it can sometimes be horrendous as a candidate when you don’t hear anything for long periods of time. But Mark followed up with me quickly at each stage and his feedback was really good. The whole process moved relatively quickly, which I was happy about. My experience was very positive and I would absolutely recommend Hanover Fox to clients and candidates.”
