Previously, at the Ministry of Defense of Austria, Michael spearheaded the management recruitment function for national and international missions as well as designed and implemented their assessment centers.

“It is a pleasure to be joining the global team of H.I.E.C and to be heading up yet another market expansion by opening our new office in Vienna, Austria,” commented Michael Baumann, Managing Partner at H.I.E.C. “H.I.E.C has built an outstanding track record and brand recognition across Europe, as well as globally, since its establishment over a decade ago. Our physical presence in Austria will further strengthen our capabilities to provide best in class search services to clients with a focus on German speaking countries. The Austrian office will focus on hiring cross-sector, digital transformational leaders.
