     for the up and coming sector

Hamburg, 4th March 2014 – The HR consultancy InterSearch Executive Consultants consolidates its expertise in the growing healthcare market. Industry insider Fritz Grupe will be responsible for Healthcare as Senior Client Partner and will also lead the expansion of the business in the areas of Life Science and Public Sector. The HR specialist will spearhead the recruitment of highly qualified candidates for hospitals and health insurers as well as medical technology- and pharmaceutical companies. The focus will be on senior positions in management and Chiefs of Medicine in hospitals and clinics.

Fritz Grupe draws on 27 years experience of HR- and Management-Consultancy in addition to his extensive experience of industry in a number of senior management functions. In the past nine years, he has been Managing Partner of an international HR consultancy, where he carried out successful searches for around 200 Chiefs of Medicine.

An economist by training, Grupe has authored and co-written several scientific papers about branding in healthcare, and e-healthcare. His book, “Dream Job: Chief of Medicine” was published in the autumn of 2012. Additionally, Fritz Grupe was Lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences in Hamburg and was appointed to the Advisory Board of Flensburg University by the Ministry of Science from 2006–2009.

Competition to find leaders in healthcare is increasing

For InterSearch, the appointment of Fritz Grupe represents a significant move in the growing Healthcare sector. The demand for medical services across the board has been increasing for some years already, and demographic development will further underline this trend. On the other hand, clinics and healthcare insurers are experiencing growing pressure on the available resources. Managers of the top two levels who combine medical qualifications and business skills are therefore in great demand.

“In Fritz Grupe, we have acquired a recognized authority in the areas of Healthcare, Life Science and Public Sector. His expertise in these areas puts InterSearch Executive Consultants in an ideal position to expand into growing HR consultancy markets” says Karl-Josef Mondorf, Managing Partner of InterSearch Executive Consultants.
