Engineering and project services specialist recruiters Excellence AG have announced the appointment of Vera Calasan as company CEO. Ms Calasan joins the company from ManpowerGroup Germany.
The company recently moved its headquarters to Dusseldorf, close to the headquarters for the Association of German Engineers (VDI). New officers will open in Munich, Hamburg, and Frankfurt in November, with four additional sites opening within a year.
Pieter Wegman, Chairman of Excellence AG, commented: “We are continuing with our expansion and are delighted that we have appointed the Germany-wide recognised corporate driver Vera Calasan as our CEO.”
The need for specialised engineers who are able to perform complex tasks within the industry is increasing disproportionately indicating a skills shortage. Nevertheless, Ms Casalan doesn’t see this as an obstacle to their ambitious growth targets.
She said: “There is no shortage of engineers in Germany. The current problems filling vacancies are mainly due to the fact that market players have not adapted well to the conditions of today’s labour market. The companies depend on the quixotic notion of an ideal employee. Few are open to foreign employees or cross-industry information exchanges.”
“German companies need solutions for the increasing complexity of technological development in order to survive in the global market. They need cross-industry information exchanges. That can only be facilitated by an engineering service provider. A whole new industry has been developed here. For Germany as an industrial engineer, I see tremendous growth potential for the industry,” she concluded.
