Biographies of speakers:

Sandra is from Austria and started her international career in recruitment in June 2002 in Budapest, Hungary at TMP Worldwide (then Hudson) in the Legal Recruitment Department that has become Legalis.

She has worked with executives in CEE while being based in both Budapest and Warsaw, Poland. In June 2010 after a 2-year break in recruitment (Sales & Marketing Manager in Latin America), Sandra decided to change, though not moving in-house, but to what she likes calling “the third side” of the recruitment process: supporting executives in their job hunting process, mainly across Europe.

Sandra works in English, Polish, German and Spanish. She also speaks Portuguese and French.

Carl Schander

CEO & Co-founder of exparang

Based in Warsaw and Stockholm, Carl is an HR-tech entrepreneur who founded the startup exparang – an innovative AI-enabled platform for automated, personalized and unbiased recruitment matches in the executive search segment. With a strong track record in global Executive Search and Assessment from Russell Reynolds Associates and Heidrick & Struggles, Carl has advised across a wide range of industries and functions, with an edge in Private Equity related talent and career management in the Nordics.
Completing his M.Sc. in Business Administration from the Stockholm School of Economics, Carl started his career as a Financial Analyst for the listed investment company Industrivärden.

Norrie Sinclair, originally from Scotland, first entered the world of recruitment in October 1990 with Michael Page Group, after graduating with a BA in Accounting and Finance from Napier University, Edinburgh.

Norrie spent 5 years in London with Michael Page before being feeling the pull of post Soviet Central Europe and, beginning Jan 1996, building an executive search and selection business in Budapest, Hungary for global search firm Nicholson International. Subsequently he did the same in Romania and became Regional Director for Nicholson International in CEE and Turkey where he lead a team of 60 consultants across six markets.

Seeing an opportunity in the world of online recruitment, although still in its infancy across much of Central and eastern Europe, Norrie joined a venture capital backed (3i, Esther Dyson, LHV) online recruiting company, CV-Online, as CEO,  turned it around and with a great team of people built it into one of the strongest players in the region (revenue growing from EUR400,000 to EUR25,000,000 by 2008). CV-Online was sold to a strategic investor in 2012, but Norrie and his management team MBO’d the recruitment company that they built alongside CV-Online, named CVO Recruitment, and is still an active participant in the business as an owner and director. 

When he relocated from Budapest to Warsaw in 2014 Norrie started building another recruitment company, Futures Inc., which he currently runs and spends most of his time on.
