CHRISTIAN KLENNER

DHL GROUP
GERMANY

Christian is a Senior Expert for Recruiting & Sourcing at DHL Group Headquarters with extensive experience in the search and selection of professionals and executives. He has been in the recruiting game for over 15 years, familiar with both the in-house side and headhunting/executive search. He started his career in the 2000s, before OpenBC/Xing or Linkedin revolutionized active sourcing and long before automation and AI in sourcing were even imaginable. Back then, equipped with printouts of company databases, an ISDN phone, pen, paper, and creative cover stories, he would make calls to bypass switchboards and secretaries to identify organizational structures and potential candidates. Wild times… Active sourcing remains one of his core focuses, not only because the candidate market demands it, but especially because he still enjoys it! He places particular emphasis on building relationships and networks with candidates and creating a positive candidate experience.
