Rudolf H. Schicker / Chairman

Rudolf H. Schicker began his career in the travel industry. At the age of thirty, he became managing director of one of the worldwide largest tourism group. After ten years in this industry sector he founded his own company in Liechtenstein, a marketing company specialising in film licences, and in his eight years as chief executive he was successful in building up a worldwide network. In 1991, spurred by his vision of helping companies in their 'war for talent' and the conviction this would enable them to generate sustainable value, he decided to put his extensive leadership experience to work in the global executive search business. In 1997 Rudolf H. Schicker founded the Atkinson Stuart Group and it is thanks to his astute business acumen and strategic vision that Atkinson Stuart has today become one of the leading independent providers of Executive Search services.
