My name is Marc Stößer, Managing Director of KSV (Kompetenz für Schienengebundene Verkehre) in Leipzig. For many years, KSV and Sabine Higgen and her team at Departer have been working in close collaboration in the field of Executive Search. Our partnership began with a direct approach to me, aiming to recruit me as the Managing Director for KSV. The challenge was to guide the company through a transformation process, transitioning from a Buy & Build strategy into integration with Trans Europa Express Holding AG in Switzerland. A successor was sought for the leadership and the goal was to lead the organization toward becoming a growing and modern company while fostering trust among the employees. Thanks to my extensive leadership experience as a Managing Director and my technical background, I was able to successfully meet this challenge. I have been leading the company for the past 5 years. The trustful collaboration with Mrs. Higgen and her team at Departer has consistently evolved since then. Several vacancies at KSV have now been successfully filled through Departer. Departer filled the vacancies through their existing candidate network and direct approaches throughout Germany, ranging from positions in commercial management to experts in railway operations management and training leadership. The Departer team has done an excellent job and maintains contact with candidates over the years. The candidates have consistently affirmed the respectful and professional collaboration with Departer. Throughout the entire processes, Mrs. Higgen and the Departer team provided excellent communication and guidance, consistently conveying a sense of being well-supported. Thanks to Mrs. Higgen and the expertise of Departer, KSV has been able to successfully fill numerous key positions. The placement processes have consistently been seamless and of high quality and I am very grateful to Departer for their support and excellent collaboration. I would recommend Departer to any company in search of executive search solutions. Their professionalism, expertise and dedication to their clients are unparalleled and they truly commit to identifying and hiring the best-suited candidate for the job. I cannot thank them enough for the successful process we have achieved together.
