Industry focus of Klaus Mayerhanser


Executive Search Consulting Telecommunications

For many years, we have been managing challenging projects in all sectors within telecommunications at the Munich Executive Search Consultancy, from network operators for fixed and mobile networks, manufacturers of smartphones, broadband and fiber optic companies, IP telephony, routers, switches or even network equipment suppliers. This industry is characterized by very fast product cycles, innovations and enormous speed. We at DELTACON are the ideal partner in telecommunications because, despite intensive screening processes, we provide our clients with suitable candidates in a short time.


Executive Search Consulting IT

Due to our industry expertise, we also have many challenging projects in the fast-moving and dynamic IT industry with the sub-industries of information technology such as software, CRM, SaaS, IaaS, Cloud, IT hardware, monitors, servers, hosting, Digiatl Signage, IoT or security. There is a shortage of above average candidates in the IT industry and our profession is to still deliver the top profiles to our clients.


Executive Search Consulting Consumer Electronics

We are also at home in the consumer electronics product world and, as an Executive Search Consultancy in Munich, we manage numerous projects in the sub-sectors of the consumer electronics product world. Among the most relevant are home entertainment, audio & video, TV, streaming, photo, gaming or home appliances. In addition, there are new fields such as connected home or security solutions for the home, such as cameras via WLAN connections.

Frequently asked questions to Klaus Mayerhanser

What are the advantages of a mandate versus a placement in HR consulting?

A mandate offers numerous advantages for the client: The quality of the candidates: With a mandate, the executive search consultant provides intensive consulting and delivers precisely fitting candidates from the matched target companies after multi-level and personal interviews and a review using diagnostic tools. Recruitments based on placements are nothing more than CV trading! Guarantees: Only in the case of a mandate, the client receives guarantees: Backfill Guarantee, Placement Promise as well as Don't touch Guarantee. Motivation to change: In the case of a mandate, the subject of the candidate's motivation to change is intensively inquired about and validated: what is the candidate missing at his current employer, what is bothering him and where would he like to develop? This significantly reduces the risk of the top candidate dropping out in the end. Client reputation: If several consultancies are hired at the same time and approach the same candidates, it looks to the market as if the company is desperate for good employees. Data protection: In the case of a mandate, candidates are actively asked in the interviews whether they actually want to be presented to the client. During placement, candidates are often presented first and then asked.

As an executive search firm, do you only fill C-level positions?

As an Executive Search Consultancy with a focus on executive search, we primarily fill positions at C-level. In addition, we also support our clients with vacancies for highly qualified specialists. The relevance of the employee for the company is decisive, because here both for us and for the client the effort and cost analysis has to be considered. It is often just as costly for us to find and inspire a specialist with sought-after skills as it is for a managing director. The effort in identification and screening is just as high for us, because we always deliver a very good fit and quality, regardless of the fee. In the end, the decisive factor for the client is whether he is prepared to hire an Executive Search Consultancy to fill the vacancy for a top shortlist after six weeks or to leave it unfilled. The decisive factor is what damage is done to the company. As a rule, it makes more economic sense, especially in highly competitive industries, to hire a professional to solve this problem.
