Cribb Executive Search

"I have spent half my life in the creative industry bringing together different perspectives on a task and developing solutions that are both unexpected and winning. In the process, I've come to realize that the big lever in my eyes is 1. putting the right people in 2. the critical positions and 3. getting them to work together in the right way. Helping companies and entrepreneurs reach their full potential in each of these three areas is what I would like to spend the second half of my professional life doing, and to pass on to my children a (business) world that we don't have to justify ourselves for."

After spending his school years in a national pilot class where children with and without disabilities could learn together, briefly studying law and completing a classical sales apprenticeship in the real estate industry, the former national rowing team athlete, and multiple medal winner in a wide variety of national and international competitions, was drawn to the creative industry.

After stations and partnerships in various top agencies, he was part of the management team that sold the agency HEIMAT to the international agency group TBWA Worldwide in 2014, whose German business with 700 employees he took over a little later as CEO TBWA Group Germany, before being headhunted to join the headhunting boutique Dwight Cribb as part of their leadership team in 2021, where he has been driving the further development of the company into a talent consulting boutique.  

Tobias Jung was born in Marburg and lives in Hamburg with his wife, two children, a dog and many bicycles, as well as the hope for the HSV to be return to 1. Bundesliga. Soon.
