Dieter Steinbach, who had been working as an independent HR consultant since 1979, founded Steinbach & Partner in 1984. With a graduate degree in psychology, his emphasis was on evaluating candidates from the very start, so he developed the “GTS - General Test System,” a tool to test a candidate’s suitability for a position. Dieter Steinbach rapidly grew the company into one of the leading executive search firms in Germany; he also initiated international expansion by founding the EESN network in 2004. In 2006, Dieter Steinbach passed away unexpectedly. He was highly regarded by his clients and employees, both as the managing director and an HR consultant.
Since April 2006, Sebastian Steinbach has been at the helm of the company and has further expanded Steinbach & Partner International.
