Glasford International Deutschland continues to grow

Klaus-Dieter Weinzierl, new partner of Glasford International Deutschland

Munich (fa). For the exec­u­tive search com­pa­ny Glasford Inter­na­tion­al, 2020 is the year of growth. After the suc­cess­ful inte­gra­tion of the oper­a­tive busi­ness of the well-known Man­age­ment Beratung München (MBM), there is a fur­ther merg­er that dri­ves the expan­sion of the com­pa­ny. At the begin­ning of 2020, Glasford Inter­na­tion­al was able to bring in Klaus-Dieter Weinzierl, the long-stand­ing top man­ag­er of a well-known auto­mo­tive sup­pli­er, as a partner.

Glasford Inter­na­tion­al Deutsch­land was found­ed in Munich in 1997 and has since been suc­cess­ful in fill­ing top man­age­ment and key posi­tions both in Ger­many and world­wide. Many long­stand­ing clients have been rely­ing on the exten­sive exper­tise of the com­pa­ny for more than 20 years and can­di­dates also appre­ci­ate the con­stant and con­fi­den­tial exchange. Glasford Inter­na­tion­al Deutsch­land relies on a large and con­stant­ly grow­ing organ­i­sa­tion with part­ners in 30 countries

Mr. Weinzierl, an engi­neer in process engi­neer­ing, can rely on more than 25 years of expe­ri­ence in indus­try and espe­cial­ly in the auto­mo­tive sec­tor. The long-stand­ing man­ag­er has an estab­lished net­work of renowned auto­mo­bile man­u­fac­tur­ers and sup­pli­ers in Ger­many and world­wide. Mr. Weinzierl start­ed his pro­fes­sion­al career as a devel­op­ment engi­neer for a glob­al­ly active auto­mo­tive sup­pli­er as ear­ly as 1994 and quick­ly gained expe­ri­ence in inter­na­tion­al project man­age­ment, acquir­ing a pro­found knowl­edge of the entire prod­uct cycle process chain: from sales, design, devel­op­ment, pro­duc­tion plan­ning, change man­age­ment, qual­i­ty to pro­duc­tion and logis­tics. He then worked for many years in sales man­age­ment and suc­cess­ful­ly built up new mar­kets and cus­tomers. The suc­cess­es did not go unno­ticed for long and Mr. Weinzierl took over the man­age­ment of a busi­ness unit with com­plete P&L respon­si­bil­i­ty. Up until 2017, Mr. Weinzierl worked for the com­pa­ny as Senior VP, with over­all man­age­ment respon­si­bil­i­ty in large prod­uct seg­ments and the Asia region. He was a key con­trib­u­tor to the company’s growth through the devel­op­ment of new prod­ucts and busi­ness areas as well as the expan­sion into new regions such as the USA, East­ern Europe, Chi­na, India, Thai­land, Malaysia and South Africa. He is famil­iar with the imple­men­ta­tion of Cor­po­rate Strat­e­gy, Mar­ket­ing and Organization projects as well as large-scale cross-func­tion­al effi­cien­cy improve­ment and cost reduc­tion programs.


In 2017 Mr. Weinzierl decid­ed to give up his work in the indus­tri­al com­pa­ny and became self-employed. Thanks to his exten­sive expe­ri­ence in strat­e­gy devel­op­ment and busi­ness devel­op­ment, he has been suc­cess­ful­ly sup­port­ing clients from a wide range of indus­tries ever since. His first con­tact with Exec­u­tive Search Con­sult­ing came dur­ing the merg­er of MBM and Glasford Inter­na­tion­al Ger­many. Joint syn­er­gies and a con­vinc­ing coop­er­a­tion led Mr. Weinzierl to the deci­sion to become a part­ner of Glasford Inter­na­tion­al. “The coop­er­a­tion with the renowned exec­u­tive search organization is a per­fect com­ple­ment to Glasford International’s growth strat­e­gy in the indus­tri­al and auto­mo­tive sec­tor, to which I can con­tribute my expe­ri­ence and net­work excel­lent­ly”, explains Mr. Weinzierl.


Man­ag­ing Direc­tor David Buch­berg­er is also con­fi­dent: “With Klaus-Dieter Weinzierl, we have gained anoth­er valu­able part­ner who brings with him not only excel­lent tech­ni­cal knowl­edge from the indus­tri­al project busi­ness and a high-rank­ing net­work from the auto­mo­tive indus­try, but who above all is an excel­lent per­son­al fit for our team. We are look­ing for­ward to this col­lab­o­ra­tion and to a suc­cess­ful year 2020 together”.
