Executive Search
for the Future

A technology is only as good as the people who develop it. A business model is only as good as the people who take it into the future. And an entrepreneurial vision is only as good as the people who put it into practice.

With this conviction, we as executive search experts have been building digital and innovative companies since 2009. We don’t look for managerial profiles that leave everything as it has always been. Instead, we find entrepreneurial leadership personalities who shape the future as it can be.

Kerstin Diebenbusch
HR Director

"When working with i-potentials, we realized how valuable more than 10 years of digital expertise and network building are when filling a C-level position in this environment. The candidates for our CEO succession were selected very carefully and with a lot of know-how about relevant business models and leadership profiles. The unique consulting team provided us with excellent support throughout the process with their experience and excellent communication."

Florian Gottschaller
Founder

"i-potentials has been with us as a strategic recruiting and leadership mentor since our inception. They understand the phases we go through as a company and leadership team and can understand our strategic considerations from a business perspective. As a result, they can help us implement our next steps like no other company. The retail rollout, for example, required a C-level adjustment. Together with i-potentials, we were able to hire a strong CHRO and CFO."

Dirk Graber
Co-Chief Executive Officer & Founder

"In the cooperation with i-potentials, I was convinced by the very good preparation of the search mandate, in which the team took a lot of time to understand us excellently as a company and as people, and at the same time used targeted questions to identify exactly the search profile that complemented our team well. The result was very well selected, suitable candidate proposals instead of a flood of resumes. In addition, I learned a lot about us as a company through the intensive consulting and support during the process."
