Our History, Our Development

The Beginnings

On April 1st, 1991 Gerhard Deiss founded the industry-specialized recruiting agency Swiss Consult GmbH. The eTec Consult GmbH emerged from Swiss Consult GmbH on September 12th, 2000.

Focusing on the electrical engineering industry was one of the factors for success. This focus is reflected in the name "eTec". We have gradually deepened our industry specialization which we extended to other industrial segments connected to electrical engineering.

From the beginning the experience of Mr. Deiss as a former CEO at METTLER TOLEDO Germany – particularly in building a powerful direct sales force and key account management – has been of great importance to the medium-sized companies. Successful long-term partnerships have been established on the basis of successful joint projects. Based on these experiences, we have developed our consulting concepts constantly in order to recommend the "best" candidates to our clients.

With the success of our customers and their increasing activity in the international markets, we’ve grown, too. Therefore, we developed our international business by our customer’s side – there where they needed us!

This joint way into potential foreign markets (emerging markets) was mapped out for both our clients and us. Meanwhile, we have developed a close international network and partnerships. In the emerging markets Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe, we have project experience in more than 50 countries today. Our employees in our Direct Search Center are intercultural speaking ten languages. Our international and industry-specific expertise is due to our employees. Of course, we have continued to operate for our customers nationally with success.
