Markus is a Partner at Eliot Partnership since February 2019, and is based in the Zurich office where he works with a focus on the Continental European Market.
He spent his entire career in Executive Search for senior level appointments in Continental Europe. Starting his career in banking, this focus shifted to (re-)insurance a decade ago, where he has been working both on the life- and non-life side, at CEO and NED level, but also covering technical disciplines like actuarial, risk and finance. A couple of years ago, technology & services was added as a function to his portfolio, where he executed numerous projects in the CIO space predominantly focusing on the aerospace, aviation and telecommunications industry. Particularly within the latter sector, he supported clients when it came to build entire leadership teams which can successfully cope with the increasing demand for meaningful transformation.
Apart from his career in Executive Search, Markus spent two years at a boutique assessment firm based in Zurich, where he has worked across industries delivering leadership assessments and management audits tailored to the needs of his clientele.
Markus graduated with a PhD in Law from University of Zurich and is admitted to the Swiss Bar. Apart from native German, he speaks English and French.
