our expertise and culture

huntwerk was founded by Beate Ettl, who after more than 10 years of executive search experience at several leading recruitment companies went on to form her own life science retained search firm in 2011.

Rooted in the life science industries, e.g. pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, healthcare services, medical devices and diagnostics businesses our expertise additionally covers food industry, technology businesses and legal.

Our collaborative culture is driven by blending open mindedness, creativity and intuition with entrepreneurial spirit and a holacratic organisational structure. We understand ourselves as a cluster of team members, each enhancing the huntwerk entity with a very unique perspective, approach, competence and skill set for the benefit of our clients.
