For outstanding executives
we’ll go a long way!


Welcome to Dr. Thomas A. Biland & Partner

Dr. Thomas A. Biland & Partner is a global executive search firm. We are committed to matching highly qualified executives with teams that they complement, and where they will flourish. Our ethical foundation guarantees discretion and transparent consultation with clients and candidates. We never compromise on quality. It is our goal to establish long-lasting relationships with our clients and candidates.

Who we are

Established in 2005, we cater for SMEs and entrepreneur-driven companies with a national and international focus. On the basis of this partnership, we look for tailored solutions that suit the company. To accomplish this, we aim to understand our clients’ business and culture as this enables us to find the right solutions. Personal contact is crucial for us and we see ourselves as a sparring partner for our clients.

What we do

Our focus is on identifying executives and key specialists who are strategic for the company, either in Switzerland or in the global environment. We have carried out a large number of mandates on almost all continents, and dealing with a wide range of cultures is part of our daily job.

It is important for us to find candidates who are suitable both professionally and personally, and we put all our efforts into this quest.

What makes us unique / Values

Integrity and honesty

Discretion, confidentiality and reliability are our top priorities. Our behaviour is ethical and our communication is open, direct and transparent at all times.


We are respectful and fair to our clients and candidates constantly. Our proactive approach is geared towards sustainability and the optimum match of candidates and clients.


Our aim is to get to know our clients and candidates by a combination of listening carefully and asking the right questions. This enables us to deliver sustainable solutions, which meet everyone’s needs.


We regard passion and uncompromising commitment as the bedrock for above-average performance. We set high standards and believe that people who take pleasure in their work will deliver the highest quality.

Fit of Chemistry

We link up businesses with suitable candidates, with due regard to the best possible “fit of chemistry”. The future employee should not only be well equipped for the position in terms of technical skills, but also fit in well with the team and the corporate culture.


Executive Search




Impartiality and result-oriented openness enable us to help you look at yourself in the mirror.

Several years of leadership experience in international management, requiring intense receptivity to individual personalities, is the basis of our guarantee of effective service. Our clients benefit from our wide experience and know-how in assessing the available options for professional reorientation specifically in reference to each individual. We support newly appointed managers in achieving lasting and sustainable success for themselves as well as for their company.


Experience and pragmatism, not buzzwords and theories, are our guiding ideas.

Organizational vacancies are often the result of a strategy shift or reorganization process. Comparison of potential individuals and actual position profiles may expose a gap which must be addressed with adequate and appropriate measures. In either case, we offer our qualified services to support the design and development of the organization and its corporate culture within your articulated framework.



We take the needs of newly oriented managers and specialists very seriously. You are, therefore, welcome to upload your documents confidentially via the link below. However, the large number of CVs we receive forces us to make the process very streamlined.

You will receive an acknowledgement of receipt, and your documents will be circulated and discussed internally. If we have any questions or a suitable mandate, we will be happy to contact you. Otherwise, no additional communication will take place.

Thank you for your understanding.
