Executive Search

How DSML Works with French Companies to Hire US Executives

At DSML, we understand that recruiting is not one-size-fits-all, and that recruiting interculturally adds additional complexities. This is why we customize our search approach to fit each of our clients’ needs. We pride ourselves in utilizing effective ways to attract, recruit, and retain diverse senior talent focused on executives for European-owned U.S. subsidiaries.

DSML Executive Search was co-founded by Myriam Le Cannellier, after developing a local executive recruiting niche for subsidiaries of French companies in Buenos Aires. Today, seeing French companies succeed during the critical moment of international expansion is a cause near to Myriam’s heart, especially as a French expatriate herself. She and her multi-lingual team are well equipped to place U.S. executive prospects that will propel your French business forward. We understand how difficult it can be to find the right candidate who can successfully integrate into foreign organizations. With nearly 15 years of experience under our belts, DSML Executive Search’s experience in recruiting hundreds of executives for our clients positions us advantageously to find the local managerial talent that European companies need to succeed in the United States.

In this bi-cultural niche, we understand that we are the first impression of our clients to the candidates – most often passive – that we approach. Thus, when working with French companies –or any European company, for that matter– to hire US Executives, we aren’t just hired help: we work meticulously with our clients to form partnerships to attract and select the talent they need. Part of this partnership entails working with clients to define requirements, recommend the optimal methods for sourcing the right talent, and convince chosen candidates to join their organization, in order to be the biggest advocates of our clients’ businesses and projects.

Because executive hires are among the most important hires, we are proud to offer an extensive and meticulous executive search process. Our team is committed to thoroughness in order to achieve the best possible outcome, for both client and candidate. To do this, we assigned project-specific teams, that consist of a director, two executive recruiters, and additional staff as needed to provide comprehensive results. This team conducts a stakeholder meeting to discuss the search objectives, the profile required and the process, aiming at the most alignment possible before the search starts.

DSML also prioritizes transparency throughout the process, out of respect for both clients and candidates. It is for this reason that we provide clear and honest communication about timing and unique challenges that may occur, as well as 24/7 access to our portal showing real-time progress. Additionally, because our team is composed of multi-lingual employees themselves who understand the complexities and differences of hiring between the United States and Europe, we are committed and passionate about successfully finding the right candidate in your open roles. Thus, all candidates are interviewed multiple times before being introduced to the client, and we conduct thorough background and reference checks on all candidates.

If your company is seeking to recruit for a key position, such as CEO, COO, President, VP, or other Senior level roles, don’t hesitate to contact us to ensure your search includes a “thorough” process and a “success-based” strategy.
