Executive Search
for the digital world

We find leaders that will shape the future of your business.
And we develop human based strategies for transformation.

→ German Version

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 Search 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.


Advisory and supervisory boards should be sparring partners and advisors with valuable expertise. 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.


With our ambition and experience in Executive Search, we are looking for the leaders of tomorrow.

We systematically search for and select senior experts and middle management with a digital mindset.


Interim management bridges temporary leadership gaps with experienced executives for specific projects or transitions. Interim leaders bring fast expertise, tackling challenges and guiding companies to ensure smooth continuity through critical periods of growth, change or transformation.

Our Consulting Services


We consult you on your human resources and talent strategy.
We help analyze existing skills and outline future leadership requirements for your business.

Impact Assessement

With our customized Executive Impact Assessments, we analyse what impact individuals will be able to make in the context of your company. We evaluate which aspects of the new role will be easy to manage and which could be more challenging. The assessment provides a basis for decision-making where immediate impact can be expected and where additional investment is required.

Readiness Assessment

We understand that digital transformation in companies means changing both structures and culture. This requires specific competences, processes and systems, working methods and leadership methods. With our cribbDIRA service, we identify & evaluate your digital company status and recommend areas for development.


We ensure that the start of a new leader is managed, prepared and organized in the best possible way. We support you with a concrete and strategic plan to quickly and sustainably bring new top performers into effectiveness.


Leading enterprises know about the challenges of the digital world.

We know how to find the right people to tackle them.

We are specialised

We have repeatedly been voted among the best executive search firms in Germany, most recently in 2023 by WirtschaftsWoche. 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 search, as we understand it, is a structured process that is carried out in a predictable way and proceeds within an agreed timeframe.

Working with Cribb takes out the elements of chance or unpleasant surprises. We plan a search in detail and carry it 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 1.500 leadership searches and with more than 10,000 executive contacts from the digital sector every year, our consultants have an outstanding network. 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.

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.
