Senior Executives For Cross-Border Roles

Multilingual Executives specialises in helping companies source Senior Executives, Managers and Directors who are proficient in more than one language including English and who know how to use intercultural skills within their business role.

When doing business in foreign countries, an appreciation of different business cultures and norms and the ability to speak the language are a “must have” in order to truly succeed. Whether for a short term interim management assignment, or long term international business development, we help you find the multilingual executive with the cross-cultural skillset.


A focused search for executives with foreign language and cross-cultural skills.


Multilingual Interims available for projects, turnarounds, or until a permanent hire is found.


Interim Executives available at short notice and prepared to commit long term.

Our philosophy is to understand the specific requirements of the position, whilst taking into account the foreign business environment that the candidate will be working with. Subsequently our search process is geared toward selecting candidates who will:

  • Possess relevant language capabilities
  • Demonstrate experience of working across international boundaries
  • Understand and appreciate the intricacies of international cultures
  • Add value to your business.

Covering all industry sectors and key functions, we offer a distinct advantage over classic search providers by helping you source candidates with the extra advantage of both business and language skill sets.
