Feedback from our clients


The collaboration with Daniela Schilz and all the DCZ team was very straightforward, and effective. Daniela’s team identified a number of very suitable candidates for our new CSO position, and was able to assist us in the whole process of the recruitment. As a small drug discovery company in a late stage of the preclinical development, we had a number of different criterias on the candidates, and we can absolutely recommend DCZ Executive Search for further collaboration.

Pharma Company

We are a fast-growing biotech company – our workforce grew by two-thirds within a year. Thanks to DCZ’s excellent service, we were able to hire the new employees within a very short time. However, they not only helped us find new employees, but also provided us with fantastic support for many other services. This was essential for us to be able to handle this enormous growth. In the first step, DCZ was instrumental in working out the job profiles in detail. They also provided us with interview guidelines for follow-up and final interviews.

In addition we have received support in setting up and implementing various necessary HR topics:

  • Assisted in analyzing how our teams should best be composed in the varous subject areas
  • Created onboarding concepts that we implemented; thus, new hires could be quickly into our organization
  • Designed a customized dynamic performance- and goal-oriented compensation model

With all these activities, they filled the HR department during its implementation phase with content which we were able to pick up immediately. These concepts help our HR manager – also identified by DCZ – to steer the further growth of our organization. I can highly recommend DCZ Executive Search as an excellent service provider for recruitment and HR management – not only, but especially for fast growing biotech companies.

We have worked with DCZ on several assignments to expand our sales and marketing department. During our close cooperation, I was impressed how well the potential candidates were pre-selected according to our demands. Their interview summaries in writing, which we received as preparation, were very useful to decide which candidate to invite first. The ones we have seen were personally and professionally perfectly suited to our needs and ideas. All DCZ projects were executed in a timely and professional manner. The consultants involved were competent and pleasant to work with. I am really looking forward to working with and relying on DCZ again, since they not just understand their business very well but also exceed in matching their clients needs.
