Helffrich International, established in 1984, is a 'modified retained' search firm that specializes in sourcing management, sales, marketing and senior level technical professionals for domestic and international positions. The company works primarily for clients in the advanced materials, energy, medical equipment, mining, and manufacturing industries. Helffrich International is a preferred member of Top Echelon, one of the premier networks of independent search firms in the world. This affiliation provides immediate access to a large, current data base of candidates who meet specific discipline, industry and geographic requirements. It also furnishes information on salaries, incentive programs, benefits, relocation and other forms of compensation used to attract and retain top talent. Helffrich International does not hesitate to partner with search firms around the world when appropriate. The Principals, Michael D. Helffrich and Alan B. Helffrich Jr. have more than 50 years of combined experience in executive search. Further, they have domestic and international experience as Sales, Branch, Regional and General Manager, Vice President and President of various multinational industrial and financial companies in the United States, Latin America and Europe. Both Principals are Certified Personnel Consultants. Both have served as Officers of local, state and international business and personnel associations. Both speak several languages and have a global business perspective. This background assures clients a pragmatic, in depth understanding of business operations and the factors affecting senior staffing decisions. Our strength is identifying, qualifying and recruiting professionals who are not on the market. Further, compared to traditional retained search, our modified retained modus operandi assures better performance at less cost. We have never failed a modified retained search assignment.
