Experienced executives for short-term challenges
With focus on new projects
Companies often need specialized knowledge and know-how to tackle a new project without directly creating a full-time position for it. This is where interim managers come into play. As experts with many years of professional experience, which usually includes a career as an executive, interim managers are the perfect solution for companies that need expert project management without making a long-term commitment. Their availability for a specific period of time and bringing with them the necessary know-how, they help to complete tasks quickly and efficiently on specific issues, thus bringing the project to a successful conclusion.
With focus on the future
You know it: Sometimes there are unexpected departures of employees, which can cause unplanned interruptions for business operations. To counter this risk until a permanent successor is found, it pays to involve interim managers. These temporary experts not only take on the day-to-day tasks, but also impart important knowledge from which companies can benefit long after they have left – making them an invaluable addition to companies in a transition phase.
With focus on success
When companies are faced with restructuring or similarly complex situations, they often benefit from the expertise of interim managers. They are an asset to the company primarily because they bring an objective view from the outside of the firmly established structures. Their perspective is not distorted by the day-to-day operations of the company, so they can contribute and implement invaluable assessments and ideas.
With focus on growth
Your company is on course for expansion. But as it grows, the demands on your team also increase. Often during this phase, it becomes particularly apparent that your team members need professional guidance. Hiring interim managers allows your teams to keep pace with your company’s growth by following processes, sharpening procedures, and eliminating bottlenecks. Experienced leaders have these specialized skills and help ensure that your business continues to grow effectively and efficiently.
Get the results you need today and tomorrow
Manage time-critical projects, overcome personnel bottlenecks and proactively meet challenges such as restructuring or expansion without affecting your business operations. We will find the right interim managers for you, who will carry out their assignments in the company in a target-oriented and confident manner and bring them to a successful conclusion.

I would like to acknowledge the high level of service that LEADER SELECTION has provided during our cooperation. LEADER SELECTION has been able to keep up with our demands, and has placed our CFO in an extremely effective manner. They showed a great understanding of our technology and business and thoroughly researched both our products and potential candidates prior to making introductions. We have been very satisfied with the quality of the candidates and the necessary discretion related to this search. I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with the team of LEADER SELECTION again, should the opportunity arise.
Since 2004 I have been working with Elmar Stenglein of LEADER SELECTION on six mandates so far. With Elmar’s help I have been able to hire six top executives (three CEOs, two COOs and one CFO). It turned out very quickly that Elmar does not only maintain a very powerful and detailed database but – more importantly – has a pronounced sensitivity to what type of manager with which background and experience is qualified to meet the individual requirements of the position. I will continue to work with Elmar in the future and I can honestly recommend his service.
Personally, I have known Elmar Stenglein – founder and managing partner of LEADER SELECTION – for more than five years. When I contacted Elmar Stenglein asking him for potential candidates (I was searching for two new members of the Managing Board of Directors – both CEO and CFO), he personally took his time to learn first of all about the company and to understand the business model. With the support of Elmar Stenglein we saw a wide range of well-screened and highly capable candidates in terms of profession and personality. The match for each position was not only very good compared to our requirements, but also with regard to the personal spirit of cooperation between the new CEO and CFO and the placement as a new performing team. I am pleased to recommend Elmar Stenglein and his company LEADER SELECTION as professional and trustful partners for management executive search, providing the highest level of professionalism.
I have known Dr. Hilmar Döring for many years. He understands from many years of personal experience what kind of leaders are successful in medium-sized businesses. He knows the special features of family businesses and can quickly get to grips with their specific economic, technological and personnel challenges. On this basis, he and his team quickly presented us with very well-suited candidates, both professionally and culturally, for a key area manager position in our company. His moderating advice during the final selection process was also very valuable. Through his close and appreciative contact with the candidates, he was able to maintain their interest even over a lengthy selection process and help us to win over the final selected person.
Philipp Waldmann is a reliable person, hands on and open minded with a strong market knowledge esp. in the Automotive/ Mobility segment. With more than 30 years of experience in international leadership roles in the mobility space he speaks the language of the industry and understands immediately what is needed for a “perfect fit” placement. With his “Digital-Background” he is also a competent partner if it comes to Transformation/ Digitalization topics. He is always up to the point extremely fast and – most important – he delivers! I have engaged Philipp and his team on several assignments on top level – also in Asia and the US – and I have always enjoyed working with him. He was able to solve even most complex searches with very demanding requirements.
We have had the privilege of working with Dr. Matthias Quadflieg for a placement of the position Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. Matthias brings along that brought expertise in private equity and also a deep understanding of operational management. He is experienced in restructuring and growth processes and knows the complexities involved in change management and transformation which was a precondition for us. With his structured way of working, his empathy and positive attitude Matthias made it easy for us to trust and rely on a quick and seamless recruitment process. His calm and professional working attitude gave us peace of mind at any time. The candidate we chose due to his recommendation not only meets the qualifications and experience profile we needed, but in addition perfectly fits with our company culture. In just a short time, this new addition to the executive team has already made a significant impact on our sales and marketing approach. Overall, we got to know Matthias as an exceptional experienced and reliable business partner with a good spirit and open mind. Any time, we would highly recommend to working with him.
