DR. FRANK WEINGARTEN
People with their personality traits, motives and affinities in addition to their cultural backgrounds have fascinated me ever since my school days and university studies. Combined with my interest in organisations and their diversity in terms of industries, functions and strategies, this led me to HR consulting. What contribution can a manager deliver for the company’s future? This is a key question in executive search, where I have been working since 2000 with great enthusiasm and high-quality standards.
Together with my team, I have successfully completed a large number of search and selection projects, particularly for public sector institutions and non-profit organisations, for companies in the transport/logistics sector and financial service providers as well as for major and mid-sized (family-owned) companies. This enabled me to build up a solid, reliable network and broaden and strengthen my knowledge of state-of-the-art leadership and management competencies in addition to the fit with the relevant organisational culture. Passion for the job and responsibility for sustainable staffing success are decisive for me.
I have been filling management positions at HEADSAHEAD since 2021. Prior to this, I worked for over 20 years as a partner in executive search for Kienbaum Consultants International. After completing a banking apprenticeship at Deutsche Bank and my studies in economics and business management at the Universities of Freiburg and Cologne, I started my career in the early 90s as a research associate at the Seminar and Institute for Transportation Science at the University of Cologne. I then switched over to the German Transport Forum (Deutsches Verkehrsforum e. V.) as project manager and subsequently gained valuable management experience as secretary general and chairman of the board of the German Hockey Association (Deutscher Hockey-Bund e. V.).
I am married, have three sons, and like sports, music and art and enjoy travelling. I stay in shape by running, swimming and skiing.
