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

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 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.

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.


We advise you on your human resources and talent strategy.

We help analyse existing skills and future leadership requirements for your business.


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 have repeatedly been voted among the best executive search firms in Germany, most recently in 2020 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 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 successful

Proven. We would be happy to discuss our success rates in a personal meeting.

Who we are

Cribb supports companies in their search for the best digital minds – from innovative start-ups to medium-sized and family-owned companies to listed major corporations from all sectors.

Since 1998, we have been advising companies in the digital economy and those facing the challenges of digital transformation. Our range of services includes executive search, filling supervisory and advisory board roles as well as digital advisory boards and finding the best specialists, senior experts and next leaders. We also support companies with holistic organisational and HR consulting.

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.
