VMA Group Launches in Frankfurt


VMA Group, the global recruitment and headhunting specialist for corporate and marketing communications, has extended its international network by expanding into Germany.

The Group’s strategic decision to widen its reach across Europe, by creating a hub in Frankfurt, is in response to the opening of what has traditionally been a relatively closed market.

To mark the launch, VMA Group hosted a programme of events to showcase best practice across the communications function. These included a social media masterclass, co-hosted by Nike, as well as a sharing breakfast for Heads of Communications. The former was attended by 40 communications professionals; the latter by representatives from organisations including CMS, Allianz, Deutsche Bank, Vattenfal, EY and Accenture.

Feedback from both events was resoundingly positive, with attendees agreeing that VMA Group’s approach to providing contemporary analysis, sharing best practice, and building communities is a fresh and welcome approach to specialist recruitment in the local market.

Commenting on the new office opening, Willem de Ruijter, Executive Director Europe at VMA Group, said:

“At VMA Group we work with a number of global companies that have offices in various locations. These companies have come to know VMA Group as a reliable partner in sourcing the best available communications talent locally, across Europe and internationally. The expansion into Frankfurt was a logical decision, from the perspective of both companies and communications professionals, allowing us to start our operation from a position of strength.”
