    Mathieu has proven to have what it takes to be a great recruiter: He's got people skills. He knows, what kind of people are needed when, for which company, which mission and which challenge. He has found me out of the blue and put me on a freelance consultancy job that now has become my full time employment in a dream-positoion at one of the most awesome brands in the world. I have to thank Mathieu for his commitment, extraordinary passion and always-positive attitude and I can only recommend Mathieu as a great recruiter for your business.

    Mike Bayfield

    Global Creative Director at BBDO Proximity Duesseldorf

    I have worked with several recruitment consultants over the years. Many promise you a lot at the start but then quickly forget you exist. Mathieu is a real exception.

    From our very first point of contact he was always there, working tirelessly and supporting me all the way.

    He helped me make the move from a small independent agency in the UK to a global network in Germany. I have now moved on to a more senior role at another network agency and would never have been able to do this without Mathieu’s expertise, support and guidance.

    I highly recommend Mathieu to any recruitment agencies, candidates and employers. He is a unique talent who really puts his heart and soul into helping people and organisations find the right matches for each other.

    Lena Felixberger

    Founder of DESCAPE

    Mathieu is a very passionate and dedicated recruiter. He helped me to work in great agencies, in Germany as well as abroad. His network is amazing – he seems to know everybody! I guess that's because he is such a positive person who stays in a close contact with his creatives and clients. Professional, trustworthy and highly recommendable!

    Frederico Roberto

    Associate Creative Director at VML London

    Mathieu was the who've recruited me for my current role at Inferno Agency in London. He's a passionate headhunter that will do everything that is possible to deliver its promise of finding treasures in the four corners of the world. Very easy going and professional, every time I've skyped or emailed him.
