The Lord of Search

Marcelo Ekman, CEO of Mindhunting

Who I Am?

Marcelo Ekman

I started working in the recruiting area of a very important national consultancy company in 1984, years later I became a consultant partner of the local branch of Amrop International. At the end of 1996, I decided to start up my own business and developed the first version of Mindhunting with a single person format to provide talent search service to technology companies.

Since the end of 2002 until mid-2005, I participated in the startup and development of a software factory (Idea Factory) as Human Potential Manager.

This new Mindhunting. version finds me with new challenges, good people who supports me and a deeper knowledge of the IT and Communications industry. I have been working in many different roles as University Professor, Director and Editor of an Industry Magazine and Column writer about Human Behavior in a radio show.

I love my children, the music (let’s say Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Jethro Tull, Mozart, Beethoven, all the jazz, but especially Miles Davis and Thelonius Monk) and literature (I couldn’t be more grateful to Borges, Cortazar and Don Quijote de la Mancha). I play the transverse flute for many now and with many different results, but I do not give up. I like the movies made by Woody Allen, Cohen brothers, Kusturica, Tarantino and almost every movie performed by Al Pacino.

"We help companies overcome the "Wellington effect"

To paraphrase Sun Zu in The Art of War, I would say that we should not entrust men with what they can not do. You have to select them and give them responsibilities according to their capabilities. This requires a professional and sensible approach when looking for them and recruiting them or looking for them and recruiting them.

Strategic alliances

In case of need other professionals of proven experience and ability can join and collaborate in the processes that require it.
