We are a practice dedicated exclusively to providing executive search and assessment services to leading and emerging companies operating in Central & Eastern Europe, particularly in Poland, Russia, the Czech & Slovak Republics and Hungary.


Our mission is to build the value of the companies we recruit for and to enhance the careers of the managers we assess and recommend.


Kałużyński & Madeja evolved from Poland's oldest executive search firm, founded in 1991. The firm has been active since 2002, under the Kałużyński & Madeja brand name. In 2009, we joined Odgers Berndtson Group, one of the most successful global executive search networks in the world. Unlike the major top retained executive search practices worldwide, Odgers Berndtson works largely on a partnership model, with most national businesses independently owned by their management. For more information on the Odgers Berndtson Group go to www.odgersberndtson.com. As members of the Odgers Berndtson Group we adopt AESC codes and guidelines in respect of our clients and candidates.
