DSML Executive Search is a US-based retained executive search firm with offices in Chicago and Boston, recruiting for European companies doing business in the US. Our multi-cultural team knows how challenging it can be to find the right talent, especially when there are cultural differences within organizations … including values, vision, norms, habits, and beliefs.

The organizational culture affects the way that people interact with each other, with clients, and with stakeholders and ultimately impacts the success of the organization. We are especially good at finding talent in the areas of General Management, Sales, Marketing, and Operational Management.

Hiring in the US Market poses challenges for both European Companies and the Candidates

At DSML Executive Search, we are also consulted to search for the first employee of the US subsidiary of European companies. It can seem a daunting challenge. Our clients are typically looking to get the right person for their first “VP of US” or “US Sales Director” role. This is a critical role that can make or break a US market entry strategy so expectations are high.

We also know how challenging these roles can be for the candidates, not just the company. We help our candidates to fully understand everything that the role demands. With the needs of both client companies and candidates in mind, we build a partnership of talent and trust, devoted to delivering success in the US market.
