Oliver Badura joined the executive search specialist Hager Unternehmensberatung, our Horton International partner in Germany, on 1 August. In his function as Chief Operating Officer (COO), he is responsible for the areas of marketing, IT, recruiting and training, among others.
In addition, he is pushing the continuous growth course of the successful consulting firm. Badura looks back on a long career in the field of human resources and knows the executive search trade from the bottom up. In 2002, he founded AQUINIUM GmbH, one of the leading providers of training and further education for executive search consultants and recruiters.
He is also the author of specialist articles on HR topics, gives expert lectures and is a recognised expert on HR trends for well-known magazines such as Focus Online.
Oliver founded the executive search company in 1996 together with Ralf Hager, who gave the company its name. The founding phase and the growth at that time were decisively shaped by him. Now he is returning to his roots and will support Hager Unternehmensberatung in its goal of becoming one of the top executive search consultancies in Germany and preparing it for the challenges of the working world of the future.
“We are very pleased to welcome Oliver Badura back to our team. He will further support our continued growth in his role as COO and drive our own digital transformation. I and Hager Unternehmensberatung are connected not only by our very successful start-up phase, but also by a long-standing collaboration in which he accompanied me and my team as an external trainer and consultant. Furthermore, we are connected by our personal and friendly contact, which we have always maintained,” says Ralf Hager, founder and CEO of the company.
