Alexander Nicolaï, partner

I have been active in the field of executive search, recruitment, consultancy and coaching since 1994. Prior to that I worked in international settings fulfilling commercial roles at Philips, Ericsson en Aerocom (Russia). I joined Confius in 2008.

Through years of experience within my area of expertise and many encounters with clients and candidates I am able to quickly grasp what’s really going on within an organisation and which particular competencies are required and crucial for a successful placement.

I know how to stimulate and enthuse candidates to sit down with me and give more careful thought to their future and their ambitions; what do they excel in, what makes them run the extra mile and what makes them (truly) happy.
