Thorsten Otremba Appointed Executive Vice President Global Automotive Excellence
DHR International, the privately held global executive search firm, is delighted to announce the expansion of its European Industrial Practice with the appointment of Thorsten Otremba as executive vice president. He will focus on expanding DHR’s already strong presence in the automotive industry in Europe.
Frank Smeekes, DHR International board member, managing director for Europe and a member of DHR’s Global Industrial Practice, commented:
“We are delighted to be expanding our European and Frankfurt centres of automotive excellence through Thorsten’s appointment. His deep knowledge of the industry globally as well as the dominant German automotive executive talent market make him a valuable addition to our team.”
Originally with BMW, Thorsten Otremba has spent the last 9 years working for Germany’s leading executive search firm, Kienbaum, where he was responsible for developing new key accounts in the automotive industry.
Thorsten Otremba added: “I am delighted to be joining a consultancy that takes a truly global approach to how it addresses and services the needs of firms within specific industries given the executive search industry has typically developed in a highly regionalized manner. DHR International stands for excellence in quality and speed, having the best research capabilities in the industry and the broadest access to top executives. That really adds value to our clients. I very much look forward to being a member of DHR’s global automotive team.”
