What clients say about us

I first came to know Jennifer and Borrer Executive when I was based in the UAE, prior to joining IATA. I have worked with them in both Switzerland and Madrid, for director to board level search and was impressed by their professionalism, systematic approach to each search mandate, and the quality of the shortlist they brought to us.  They act as true partners, advising us on the most optimal sourcing strategy, defining job requirements, and have even lets us know when an internal solution made more sense than going to market, which I found extremely professional and fair.
They are just great to do business with!

I have worked with Borrer Executive on several search mandates in Europe and the Middle East, recruiting for senior positions in commercial and digital.  Regardless of the complexity of the search or the region, the firm applies a rigorous identification and candidate development approach and has always succeeded in retaining highly qualified candidates. Their consultants offer in-depth knowledge of the markets and the positions they are recruiting for, allowing them to guide us on the candidates most fit for purpose in the market.

I partnered with Borrer Executive to lead a global search for a newly created procurement excellence VP. The search came at a time when Coty was going through a major transformation following the acquisition of P&G Beauty. The selected candidate would need not only to build this function but also have the cultural awareness to deliver it in our highly diverse, agile and fast moving environment.  We were presented with a blended list of candidates, not only those that ticked all the boxes and found within our direct competitors! The firm presented options for both up & coming profiles in addition to a few non-conventional profiles that I wouldn’t have considered otherwise. They really have the ability to think out of the box and find the best candidates that are fit for purpose in terms of delivering job content, fitting into our company culture and have potential to further develop within Coty.

Jennifer and her team partnered me to hire regional sales professionals in both our Middle East and CEE locations. The process was very smooth with delivery of a highly qualified candidate shortlist on time,  and within our demanding search criteria. They are very transparent, provide regular market feedback and updates so I felt I was always in touch with the search process. They can run global sourcing to tight deadlines, strict search criteria and deliver – while maintaining a positive attitude!

I have known the team at Borrer Executive for years, they are one of the most ethical transparent search firms that I have come across and are a pleasure to work with! They clearly state what they intend to do and they execute accordingly, often going beyond the search remit to overcome any barricades and find solutions to  provide a seamless recruitment process and deliver top notch candidates.

We partnered with Borrer Executive for search mandates in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and China for both commercial and supply chain leadership roles.  I was impressed with their level of market knowledge, professionalism and drive, on top of good process and methods, high flexibility and responsiveness to our needs.

Not only were we assured to of receiving a high quality of service, but our candidates also obtained a very high quality support from them. And this is also critical for me. At Bacardi, we say that we hire all candidates: either for the position we are recruiting for, for a future openings or as a Bacardi Ambassador – so the recruitment experience has to be a positive one! And this is a competitive advantage for Borrer as I’ve never had partners that were able to act so effectively on both sides.

Jennifer is a true partner during the recruitment process, her background in HR management means she can add a lot of value when evaluating job descriptions and building effective selection criteria to best target and source candidates. She is quick; customer oriented and delivers high quality work.

We turned to Jennifer when we needed to hire because she offered us a truly flexible service suited to our needs and budgets.  As smaller organization, without internal HR resources, we were very happy with the service, the candidates put forward and the support and advice received along the way.

Setting up our global headquarters in Geneva, Borrer Executive Search partnered our business to ensure we built a strong senior management team. Their service offering suited the fast-paced nature of our business; they are proactive, kept us updated weekly and
came through with the right candidates.

Candidates say about us

As a candidate approached by Borrer for an international company search, I have had the pleasure of knowing Jennifer and her team. They have been highly professional and despite the fact that thousands of kilometers separated us, I felt that they were always there for me.  After several experiences with recruitment firms, one of the most important things is to feel that you are not just a number but a human (and) that someone is taking care of you and your concerns. I can ensure that this was my feeling with Jennifer. Her professional advice and supportive attitude helped me pass this process with high confidence and clear understanding rather than tension and uncertainty. It is for these reasons that I offer high recommendations for the team at Borrer Recruitment. Their drive, attitude and abilities will truly be an asset to your company and recruiting candidates.

I’ve crossed paths with headhunters, even big firms, but Borrer  Executive is the best recruitment firms I’ve met to date. Jennifer’s follow up and service is friendly, personalised and impeccable. She is very supportive and has a good understanding and I must say that I am very impressed. The fact that she speaks also French is an additional asset.
