Hans Kaspar AG
Managing Director

A proven executive search partner will become an increasingly important success factor when recruiting proven executives. We happily rely on the highly professional support provided by Walter Iten Management Consulting. We have been impressed by his proven expertise for many years. And what convinces us every time is not only the extremely discreet handling within the recruitment process but also the company’s personal follow-up of placed specialists, beyond the actual placement process. Accordingly, we shall gladly rely on Walter Iten Unternehmensberatung in the future.

Andreas Angehr
Aarvia Group

I have been working successfully with Walter Iten for a decade. The collaboration is characterized by great mutual respect and appreciation. I also value Walter as a sparring partner on an equal footing. Over all these years, we have spent countless hours together in discussions with potential new employees. The recruitment processes were always very professional and I could rely on Walter Iten to suggest candidates who fit our company culture. Walter Iten also accompanied the new employees during the introductory phase, which always proved to be extremely helpful. I look forward to continuing to work with Walter Iten to recruit valuable new employees for our company in the future.

Frank Martin Kessler

Dear Walter Iten, about 10 years ago you contacted me by phone, aroused my curiosity and invited me for an interview. Until a year ago, I was in charge of the business unit Construction Consulting and Planning and was allowed to hand over responsibility to younger hands at the beginning of 2022. For the past year, I have again been exclusively responsible for various clients, and in parallel I have been active at the Building Appeals Court and in the Cantonal Valuation Commission. I am grateful to you for the placement, as it has helped me to find an interesting management position in a growing family business.

Alexander Kram
Head of Corporate Treasury

I worked with Walter Iten during my time as Head of Corporate Treasury at HOERBIGER, in a very early phase of setting up our in-house bank. To this day, I’m still very impressed by his professional approach to the entire recruiting process, from the analysis and profiling to the search strategy and the right placement – and that wasn’t the end of it. At times, his follow-up care and attention proved crucial for long-term success. Thanks to the trusting and outstanding cooperation with Walter Iten, I managed to find the right people to build up the financial company, a team who has stayed with me on this journey for many years. The connection to Walter Iten, an individual full of passion for other people’s development, remains to this day. Always a great inspiration!
