Who We Are
TH BENDER is the go-to address for ambitious organizations seeking business success in the North American market.
We help our clients to successfully implement their North American strategy, be it entering the market the first time, building a sales organization, establishing engineering and manufacturing operations or maximizing the value of a financial investment.
We recruit Country Managers and their direct reports, evaluate existing teams, help with succession planning and create successful teams from scratch – efficiently and discreetly. 90% of our projects are commissioned by international companies – we have a unique track-record helping European and Asian organizations finding success in the lucrative, yet challenging US and Canadian market.
TH Bender was founded by Tilman Bender in 2005, seven years after he started recruiting executives tasked with growing and guiding the American subsidiaries of European and Asian companies. Prior to his work in executive search, Tilman worked in Germany and Hong Kong for electronics and automotive manufacturers and a foundation supporting German companies setting up overseas sales channels.
TH Bender’s team of 15 experienced professionals is highly cohesive and has an exceptionally strong focus on research and the development of new candidates, leveraging the firm’s carefully curated in-house database of 280,000 former prospects and candidates.
The team is driven by a strong commitment to the success of each client, knowing well that the success of a subsidiary in the United States (or Canada) rests on the quality of each team member. This dedication to quality and service allows TH Bender to provide an exceptional placement guarantee of up to one year.
