This year, Susanne Wagner joined IRC Germany (Friedrichs & Partner) as Executive Director // Hamburg, adding Hamburg as their third office in addition to Dusseldorf and Stuttgart. 

Hamburg, a port city with a history of over 800 years is today the third largest European seaport. This vibrant heart of Northern Germany has a diverse economy and excellent connections to Berlin and the North-East of Germany. These are just a few reasons why Hamburg has been chosen the right location for the 3rd office of IRC Germany (Friedrichs & Partner). The ultimate deciding factor was Susanne Wagner.

After her study in the hospitality business, Susanne spent her first professional years in leading companies in the hotel industry. In January 2002 she moved into the executive search industry. She was involved in setting up an Executive Search firm in Stuttgart and acted as consultant and member of the management board responsible for national and international clients with a focus on the automotive, engineering, trade and media sectors. She handled search assignments in Germany and across Europe. 

In spring 2009 Susanne Wagner returned to Hamburg. She founded her own Executive Search firm and successfully served clients from the automotive, engineering, trade, logistics, medical devices and professional services sector, both nationally and internationally.

“Our new office in Hamburg will give us access to 1.8 million inhabitants in the greater Hamburg region plus a strong metropolitan region of 5 million. With 16+ years of executive search experience in Germany and internationally, Susanne fits in perfectly into the Friedrichs & Partner team. With her client dedication and sustainable approach to long-term relationships, she not only brings added value to IRC Germany but also to the international IRC organisation. We warmly welcome her to embrace the future together!” adds Mathias Friedrichs, Managing Director of IRC Germany (Friedrichs & Partner).
