So, they don’t wear ties in the boardroom anymore. We never did…


We are new on the market, but known to many, thanks to past collaboration. We know our way around human resources — and we know how to do things differently.


We only accept clients who can benefit from our expertise. We are not interested in status symbols, only in achieving results in a way that transparent and beneficial for everyone.


We put all of our resources into finding you the people you are looking for – and we get involved ourselves. We have excellent networks, and we are always hot on the heels of fresh talent. That is how we find the people that you need right now. And we help them realise that your company is the right place for them.


We work fast. But we don’t start until we have a clear goal: We begin by asking “How will you know the appointment was successful, 3 years from now?” This thought drives our process – streamlined, digital, and constantly in communication with you, from the briefing to your new staff member’s first day.


We know where the obstacles lie, and we know where things get tough – we have worked through them ourselves, as employees, as managers, as founders, and as mothers. That’s how we know how diversity really works, and how diversity can best benefit your company.


Every change in management is a springboard for change. Make the most of every opportunity

New Chapter Executive Search

THE TRADITIONAL CANDIDATE SEARCH                                                                                            What do we concentrate on when searching for candidates? With us, you will get the same quality in process, advice and intellectual strength that you know from the big consultancy firms. But straightforward. And creative. And detail and diversity oriented.

We investigate target companies to find the best and most interesting candidates per company, industry, country. We then send this mapping digitally to you.

Is human resources consultant one of the hats you’re supposed to wear, but just can’t find the time? Let us take on the most important part of the search process: finding and contacting the right candidates, and we will put together listsof target companies and a long list of candidates.

You know exactly who you are looking for – but neither where nor how? Our research approach, driven in equal parts by data and creativity can easily tackle those nuts that others find too tough to crack.

New Chapter Leadership Advisory

How do I deal with HR consultants? How to we stay in budget, if our searches become more complex? How do we improve the ratings our employers have, for example when they have bad ratings online?

How am I perceived as a manager? How do we persuade top talent to join us? How do we make the most of the opportunities that diversity, new working styles, etc have to offer

Where will I be in 5 years? And in 10? What leadership skills do I have, and what do I need in order to achieve that? What is my next step?


Our team. Working for your team.

Dr. med Anne Wichels-Schnieber

Anne knows what modern management is all about, and that from many points of view – she has not only successfully appointed many to leadership positions, but she has held those positions herself several times.

As a graduate of medicine, she first started working for McKinsey, where she led the McKinsey Hospital Academy. At Russel Reynolds Associates, she was most recently responsible for the German healthcare sector. She was a founder and CEO of a healthcare tech start-up, which she successfully sold to an investor. And she was the CHRO of another. To share this comprehensive experience with many companies, she founded New Chapter Executive Search in 2021. Anne lives in Hamburg.

Julia Mandl

Comprehensive data analysis – that is Julia’s thing. That’s how she wins over candidates and clients alike – along with a sparkling serve of Viennese charm.

Julia is a CEMS graduate who also studied business administration at the Vienna University of Economics and Business. After entering the employment market as a Global Product Manager at Hilti in Schaan/Lichtenstein, she spent 3 years in London as the European Sales Manager for Virgin Atlantic. She went on to have two children in Hamburg, while also learning the skills of research at Russel Reynolds Associates. When her partner was transferred to Bogota in Colombia, she became self-employed, and now, back in Vienna, she founded New Chapter Executive Search together with Anne.

Sabine Baaß

Sabine has had quite a few demanding clients. And supervisors. All this taught her there is nothing better than a seamlessly smooth process.

Sabine started in Guest Relations Management at the Grand Hyatt Dubai, in a completely different culture with extremely high standards and expectations. Back in Germany, she studied economics majoring in human resources, management, and organisation. At the same time, she finished a trainee program in the HR team at Generali Deutschland Gruppe, and built up experience in staff selection processes. Most recently, she worked at Russel Reynolds Associates for 7 years as a project coordinator – cross-sectoral (healthcare, industrial, tech, financial, consumer) and international, on many projects at the same time. And now: she’s responsible for keeping the plates spinning at New Chapter in Hamburg.

Haydeh Eftekhar

Human resources departments love to issue complicated candidate requirements. We give them Haydeh.

Haydeh studied Islamic studies, psychology, and politics at Universität Hamburg, and then Middle Eastern Politics at the University of London. In Syracuse, Italy, she worked with a UN research project on human rights in northern Africa. She then worked 4 years at Russel Reynolds Associates in Hamburg. As a research analyst, she predominantly developed market analyses and search strategies, often on up to 20 projects at the same time. Most recently, Haydeh worked as a project manager for the Alliance für Sicherheit in der Wirtschaft in Berlin. Now she is starting a new chapter: with New Chapter in Taiwan.

Declaration of consent to the use of your data

Information provided by candidates is done so on a voluntary basis. In principle, the more information you provide, the better we can evaluate your suitability for a vacant position. We will only collect the personal data (e.g., name, address, telephone number, or email) you voluntarily provide to our website (e.g., when making enquiries or applications), or when processing of that data is permitted by the relevant legal provisions. By disclosing your data to us, you explicitly consent to its processing, including sensitive personal information. You acknowledge that you are not obliged to consent to this process, and, once granted your consent can be withdrawn at any time with future effect.

Processing of personal data

Based on your consent and at our discretion, we may disclose parts of your personal data, such as your qualifications and professional experience, to specific companies (Clients), for the purposes of analysing whether you as a candidate are of interest to them for an executive or similar management position they have indicated is open. The information thus disclosed is limited to the data strictly necessary for that purpose. We will neither disclose all of your information, nor your identity to a Client without first obtaining separate and specific consent to do so. At no time will your information be used for any purpose other than the provision of services for companies (Clients), nor be merged, linked, or otherwise connected with other personal information collected elsewhere on the website.

Withdrawal of consent

You may withdraw your consent to the processing of your data at any time. Your information will continue to be processed until such time as you withdraw your consent as granted when you provided the candidate information to us. On withdrawal of your consent, we will delete your information from all of our databases. This does not affect the legality of any processing conducted prior to the withdrawal of your consent.

Your rights

According to current law, as the data subject, you have the right to the following: information about what personal data is being stored (Art. 15 GDPR), rectification (Art. 16 GDPR), deletion (Art. 17 GDPR), restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR), to object to processing (Art. 21 GDPR), and to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR). Should your personal data change, please inform us accordingly. You may exercise your rights by using the contacts listed below.

Purpose of processing

We will only collect, process, and use the personal data you provide for the purpose indicated, unless collection, processing, and use is: – for a purpose directly related to the original purpose for which the personal data was collected; – due to a legal obligation or an official or court order; – to establish or defend legal claims or to prevent unlawful activities.
