Personnel consultants at DELTACON

The DELTACON Group offers you ideal conditions for a successful start as a recruiter – our service portfolio, quality, and the results of our work surpass the market average. Our partner model is established and highly successful. The founding partners of DELTACON Executive Search – Klaus Mayerhanser and Dietrich Groth – have been working as recruiters since 2007. After several years as partners at a Swiss recruitment firm, they founded DELTACON Executive Search in 2011. Before starting as recruiters, both founding partners of DELTACON worked in various management roles in the industry for about 20 years, gaining firsthand experience with recruitment from the client’s perspective during that time.

The development of the partner model at DELTACON was based on the broad and deep experiences of the founding partners. DELTACON stands uncompromisingly for unrestricted trust, highest quality, respect, reliability, and speed towards its clients and candidates. Numerous awards from prestigious media outlets as one of the best recruitment firms convincingly demonstrate that DELTACON meets these Standards.

Impressions from our consultants

Dr. Achim Gast
Managing Director

As an experienced manager in the chemical industry, I know precisely what expectations clients have for recruiters: transparency in the search process, high-quality standards in methodology and documentation, trustworthy collaboration, excellent industry knowledge, and precisely fitting candidates are just some of the expectations. I am proud to be part of the DELTACON team, where we regularly receive feedback from clients and candidates that our approach and quality significantly differentiate us from the competition. Feel free to test us when it comes to finding the right candidates for successful collaborations.

Marcus Christopher Schulz
Managing Director

When Klaus Mayerhanser approached me as a candidate several years ago, I was the country manager of a premium design furniture manufacturer. From the very first moment, it felt completely different from any encounters I had experienced so far with recruitment agencies, either as a client or a candidate. The conversations were professional but not stiff. Agreements were always honored, and communication was always on equal terms: intellectually substantive, respectful, and transparent. Six months later, I was proud to become a partner of the DELTACON Group myself.

Now, I support clients with DELTACON’s methodological expertise in challenging and demanding placements. Of course, I also assist candidates on their career paths with individual development programs for personal growth. Our contribution to clients and candidates is profoundly meaningful, and together we create value. All of this leads to me thoroughly enjoying every minute as a recruiter and human being at DELTACON.

Dirk Aaron Bohl
Managing Director

Because DELTACON combines passion, mission, profession, and calling. Here, all partners work with conviction and great passion, alongside high-quality standards. This is highly valued by both companies and candidates.

What sets DELTACON apart?
Primarily, it’s the people and partners who support each other and are bound by shared values such as respect, integrity, trust, reliability, and sustainability. We live these values and our clients and candidates feel it in our daily collaboration. Last but not least, it’s the high level of professionalism that is continuously being developed.

What makes DELTACON so special?
It’s the joy in what we do, how we do it, and the joy in success. Also, the freedom for innovation and the realization of our own ideas, as well as space for uniqueness and diversity. Becoming a partner at DELTACON was indeed the best idea I ever had.

Olaf Kammerer
Managing Director

Since 2019, I have been contributing to the success of DELTACON Executive Search.
