Partners in business

Only in that way can we achieve a win-win situation, and provide the surplus value that may be expected from us. Our specialty is to provide the right match.

Backerstaete has sector knowledge, empathy and judgement of character at its disposal, and combines this with speed and quality. Our employees have a passion for the job and are proud to work for Backerstaete Executive Search.
