Maaike Schröder

Associate Director, Germany

My background

I head up our Frankfurt office and cover senior appointments in Communications, Marketing and Digital across sectors for the German speaking markets. I have joined VMAGROUP in 2013 and since have worked on regional and global searches from start-ups to listed, complex corporate businesses in Central Europe.

Prior to this, I had worked for the legal sector holding academic degrees from various universities. With an interest in Reputation management, Stakeholder Relations and Leadership Communications, I keep my knowledge up to date through my membership of the Bundesverband deutscher Pressesprecher e.V. and the European Association of Communications Directors. Alongside this, we benchmark the function and monitor trends through market research and our own events.

My specialisms

My thorough understanding of the German speaking markets ensures I am able to provide comprehensive and detailed mapping of the market. With a network that ranges from mid to executive-level professionals I work across a myriad of sectors and support our clients in their business needs for retained assignment, executive search and interim management.
