We advise, search and find. Filling vacancies, creating new roles or building teams. Starting something new, consolidating something old or growing something promising: Your goal is our goal.

We help where you need us, with expertise and experience. Hands-on, efficiently and very much personally.

Our Services


Our core competence: Executive Search. We excel at filling key positions with great candidates.
Our work is based on a well-founded and structured search & selection process which leaves little to chance.


We support you in setting up or strengthening supervisory boards and digital advisory boards. Defining goals, developing operating models, structuring roles and finding the right members.


We help you reconcile your organisational structure with your strategic and operational goals. We help analyse appropriate management structures and team constellations for your business.

Interim HR

Especially in times of transformation bottlenecks can arise in the HR organisation. We can provide you with experienced Interim HR managers, used to working in complex digital environments.


Leading enterprises know about the challenges of the digital world.

But sometimes they still need to find the right people to tackle them.

We find them.

We are specialised

We understand in detail the context, structures and trends of the digital economy. We often make change happen, long before it is seen in the market.

We have been closely involved in the development of the digital economy in Germany from the beginning. Back in 1998, we began to seek leaders for the newly emerging sector. We have continued to contribute to its development ever since, accompanying many companies in their development, networking with the people driving the market and placing many outstanding leaders in key positions.

We work with efficient tools and processes.

Executive serach, as we understand it, is a structured process that is carried out in a predictable and manageable way and proceeds within an agreed timeframe.

Working with Cribb takes out the elements of chance or enpleasant surprises. We plan a search in detail and carry this out as agreed. Databases and process tools support us in the search and in the reporting of results. Established diagnostic methods aid in evaluating suitable candidates.

We have an excellent network.

After more than a thousand searches for Leaders and with more than 10,000 contacts with candidates from the digital sector every year, our consultants have an excellent network in all areas of the online industry. A continuous exchange with the key decision makers, investors and industry observers allows us to be up-to-date with the newest developments at all times.

We are big. But not too big

Our team of 15 experienced practitioners ensures that we have sufficient capacity to process up to forty concurrent searches. So you can be sure that your projects always get the attention they deserve. And, that it will always the right consultants working on your searches.

It is nigh impossible to cope with the challenges of digitization without solid advice on who can be relied upon to solve them. Dwight and his team are so well networked in the digital industry that they will find the right problem solvers.

Dwight delivers reliable success through closely managed interaction between candidate and client. The meetings are not like interviews, but more like a an in depth exchange if ideas among industry colleagues. Most of the shortlisted candidates are also very good personal fits. I experience Cribb’s professionalism through an extremely strong network and the great expert teamplay backstage. The fun in the search hence already starts with the briefing and preparatory meetings. A very competent process from need to success factor.
