Who we are<br />Heritage<br />Page 5<br /><ul><li>In 1971 Helmut Neumann founded one of the first executive search companies in Europe. As one of the pioneers in this sector he was an early advocate of the importance of a continual training and development system to create and educate top search professionals.
When Helmut Neumann formed NP in 2002, Hans Jorda joined shortly after as CEO, tasked with developing the company into a truly global player within our sector. He has brought together a team of highly-qualified consultants who share the same values.</li></li></ul><li>Who we are<br />History<br />Page 6<br />1971 - 2002<br />2004 - 2005<br />2002 - 2003<br /><ul><li>Helmut Neumann establishes one of the first executive search companies in Europe

NP assists its clients by identifying, assessing and on-boarding the most talented business leaders and specialists.
Neumann Management Colloquium is a state of the art process for evaluating professional competences along with selected aspects of the personalities of the candidates and managers in the commercial setting.</li></li></ul><li>Services<br />Overview<br />Page 14<br />Board Services<br />Special Projects<br /><ul><li>We provide professional support in staffing supervisory boards and advisory councils. The focus is on continuous improvement in the performance of supervisory bodies as efficient tools for strategic company management.
We walk the extra mile when our clients require the support of a whole team of consultants to carry out projects that include complex, creative and tailor-made solutions – such as setting up entire organizations and teams.</li></li></ul><li>Services<br />Executive Search<br />Page 15<br />Executive Search<br /><ul><li>Wherever your candidates are located, we will help you find them!

Under this model, mentees speed up their productivity in a new environment while adding value to the overall corporation.
Early frustrations and misunderstandings can be avoided through fair and experienced peer input from the executive mentor. During an initial face-to-face session executives will define targets, milestones and deliverables for the critical period of the first one hundred days in a new position with the executive mentor and follow up on them on a regular basis.
These weekly follow-ups include best practice sharing, peer input and professional feedback in a confidential atmosphere of trust and support. Executive mentors have a strong business background in relevant industries and extensive leadership experience on a CEO level within large publicly traded corporations.</li></li></ul><li>Services<br />Executive Search<br />Page 18<br />Competence Centre Structure<br /><ul><li>We believe that first-hand knowledge of our clients’ market, sector, products and services together with our global search capabilities are what make us the executive search partner of choice for clients across the globe.

It enables clients to evaluate a manager’s fit to a role specification and/or company’s mission and to assess his/her potential for future development.
The NMC is available in all local languages of our subsidiaries – this is how we can ensure direct comparability of findings throughout the entire NP group. </li></li></ul><li>Services<br />Neumann Management Colloquium<br />Page 20<br />Neumann Management Colloquium<br /><ul><li>In comparison with traditional assessment centre scenarios or testing situations, the collaborative atmosphere of discussion has the positive effect of reducing the level of stress and improving the level of acceptance of the process. Our definition of the word “colloquium” simply translates as: an open discussion among peers.
Moreover the NMC provides a strictly confidential setting in which executives and senior managers can express their point of view on internal processes and structures, allowing us to act as our clients' gateway to further optimization.</li></li></ul><li>Services<br />Neumann Management Colloquium<br />Page 21<br />Key Elements<br /><ul><li>The Neumann Management Colloquium entails two key elements:</li></ul>1.Professional Audit<br /><ul><li>The Professional Audit serves to determine a manager’s competency profile and to measure each competency in a very structured manner using bespoke questionnaires.</li></ul>2.Personality Appraisal<br /><ul><li>The Personality Appraisal primarily focuses on the evaluation / assessment of an individual’s character and personality traits.</li></ul>Evaluation<br /><ul><li>Evaluations are carried out in the form of structured interviews, always conducted by two consultants.</li></li></ul><li>Services<br />Board Services<br />Page 22<br />Board Services<br /><ul><li>Surveys of both Executive and Non-Executive Boards often highlight significant deficits. Particularly in the case of Non-Executive Directors two key shortfalls show up regularly:
absence of a meaningful pattern ofcompetencies, as represented in the respective supervisory and advisory bodies
lack of relevant (and specific) industry/sector knowledge
NP has reacted to this demand by putting together a group of highly experienced and respected top executives and board membersto directly address these and other issues.</li></li></ul><li>Services<br />Board Services<br />Page 23<br />Board Services<br /><ul><li>We provide Executive & Non-Executive Director recruitment and advisory services, such as:
