Harvey Nash has brought in a new regional managing director for Central Europe. Christian Umbs joins the business from Robert Half, and has over 20 years of experience in the specialised staffing and recruitment industry.
Christian’s goal is to develop Harvey Nash into one of the top providers in the technology recruitment sector in Germany, Switzerland, and Poland. He will work closely with the leadership and teams of each country building on the significant talent already in place. Christian joins the business in June 2021.
“I’m delighted that Christian is joining us,” says Bev White, CEO of Harvey Nash Group. “As you can imagine I spent a lot of time speaking with him talking about the role, and what struck me was how strong his values were, and the importance he placed on supporting and developing people. In short, he was a perfect match for the Group.”
Christian Umbs commented: “I am thrilled to be joining such a respected brand as Harvey Nash and am excited by the opportunity of growing the business in important territories. Harvey Nash is a company that places people at its heart; and I’m really forward to getting started.”
