Executive Search

This world doesn't need more great leaders, it needs more great people who lead

Quaestus delivers those leaders who know how to make a difference. Not only today, but tomorrow too. The key to our success? Our integrated executive search approach: people-oriented and data-driven.


Client-centered approach

While finding a new leader, first it is important to map which challenges an organization is facing, what are the dynamics within the Board and which type of leadership and behavior is necessary to establish a positive and sustainable change. This forms the starting point for creating an extended job profile together with our clients


Extended job profile

After mapping the specific objectives and dynamics of our client’s needs, the extended job profile can be measurably defined. Not only based on required hard skills (functional and technical skills), but soft skills (personality and behavior) too. These are the required elements for a refined, better and faster selection and will form the starting point for the final candidate’s assessment center and onboarding process.


Full market-survey

Based on the extended job profile we have created with our client, a full market-survey will be started to create the best overview possible of potential candidates. While doing so, we make use of our applicant tracking system which is constantly enriched through links with multiple relevant platforms, advanced online search techniques and via our extended C-level network. This process is being supported by responsible AI. It is evident this search process takes place with? full protection of our client’s name.


Validated selection

During our selection process we are fully focused on making the best possible matches insightful: a successful, sustainable connection between the organization and the newly appointed leader. Advanced search techniques enable us to select and locate the best and most secure base candidates in a refined way so we can get in touch with them and identify further. The result is a group of highly qualified candidates which will be interviewed and screened in person by our executive search consultants.


Quaestus as your trusted partner

The Quaestus team is committed to adding a valuable contribution to our client’s success and empowering leadership. We understand the dynamics within the board like no other, are a sparring partner and guide organizations through each phase of the search process. We provide additional support such as reference checks and ongoing support during the negotiation phase. Our commitment stretches further than placing the right candidate.



We are committed to the long-term success of the newly appointed leader and this does not end when we place a candidate. We always provide onboarding service during a leader’s first six months as part of our integrated executive search process. We onboard the candidate in the organization and the organization into the candidate.
