Amrop Opens New Office in Vienna
Global recruiting organization Amrop has added Gabriele Gradnitzer and Sandra Schrögenauer to represent the Amrop brand and business in Austria. The executive search and leadership veterans will operate the new company under the global Amrop brand, with offices located at Karlsplatz in Vienna’s 1st district. They are joined by a team of six consultants and researchers offering executive search and leadership advisory services with a focus on top management functions. The firm’s clients include multinational corporations as well as medium-sized, owner-managed companies and private foundations that value a personal, tailored consulting approach.
Ms. Gradnitzer and Ms. Schrögenauer take over Amrop’s Austrian business from industry doyen Günther Tengel, who will take on the role of international senior advisor to the firm and will accompany the business transition with selected long-standing clients.
With over 700 placements, Ms. Gradnitzer has over 25 years of experience in headhunting with a focus on executive search and management assessments. Most recently, she was a partner at Stanton Chase in Vienna and was responsible for managing an industry practice group. Prior to that, she spent five years at Amrop in Austria and another 11 years at Neumann in management positions and as practice head for local and international clients.
Ms. Schrögenauer has been working for consulting firms in the fields of search and diagnostic evaluation of senior executives since 2006. Most recently, she was managing director of the HR and management consultancy Kienbaum in Austria, where she was responsible for executive search and assessment services across all industries. Prior to that, she helped shape Amrop in Austria for 13 years and was an associate partner at Amrop Jenewein for many years.
“We are excited about this positive evolution of the Amrop brand in Austria, building on previous decades of market-leading success,” said Annika Farin, chair of the Amrop Partnership. “The new team brings a proven track record and an energized outlook to the group, as we continue to build ‘what’s next’ across Amrop’s global business.”
