PRCC was founded by communications consultants Thomas Lüdeke and Philip Müller in 2010 – and is now THE executive search consultancy for communications, sustainability and marketing. Our team of specialists supports you in being successful in a changing world. From our offices in Düsseldorf and Berlin, we serve clients and candidates throughout the DACH region – and beyond with our international alliance.
All PRCC consultants have first-hand experience in communications, sustainability, and marketing. Their CVs include positions in PR and advertising agencies, marketing departments and corporate communications. Before they started PRCC in 2010, Managing Directors Thomas Lüdeke and Philip Müller worked as communications consultants themselves.
Diversity, agility, digitisation… the world of marketing and communications is changing – and with it the demands on executives. PRCC has access to the top candidates with the appropriate mindset and skillset – because they are our peer group, because PRCC is known as a strong brand among these people and because we actively maintain our networks, for example through our Modern Leaders initiative.
For us, modern HR consulting means: transparency instead of black box, commitment instead of promises, modern methods instead of a worn-out address book. We are sparring partners and consultants on a par. It was with this self-image that we set out to modernise executive search consulting more than twelve years ago. The positive feedback from our clients and our placement successes confirm time and again that we will consistently continue along this path.
PRCC combines the industry expertise and quality of a boutique consultancy with the benefits of CASA (Corporate Affairs Search Alliance), an international recruitment alliance that we co-founded and manage. Through this unique combination, companies can access the best executives worldwide and receive support in currently eight countries. We help candidates to gain a foothold in these countries.
Our clients often tell us how satisfied they are with our work – for example through Google ratings. German business publication Handelsblatt also attests to our excellent consulting performance by ranking PRCC as the only specialist for communications and marketing among the top 40 executive search consultants in Germany. According to business outlet WirtschaftsWoche, we are one of the best executive search frims in Germany – with the highest rating of five stars.
Digital transformation brings many advantages for the search business: we use digital networks, AI-supported matching, and a dynamic database – complementary to the classic methods of a headhunter. To ensure that we are always up to date on what skillset candidates need today, we rely on intensive exchange with candidates, companies and with progressive partners, such as our sister company Deutsche Akademie für Public Relations (DAPR).
