Dirk Lindemann is Partner and Member of the Management Board of Kienbaum Consultants International GmbH.

Following his studies of law at the University of Bonn and his legal exams, Dirk initially worked as in-house Legal Counsel for an international insurance and financial services group, where he subsequently held a number of management positions with a focus on insurance for large industrial and multinational clients.

In 1999, Dirk joined a leading international executive search consultancy based in Frankfurt/Main. Initially as Consultant and, after two years only, as Partner, Dirk achieved numerous placements of both top executives and specialists in the insurance industry. At the same time, Dirk developed and established the legal recruitment for major law firms – at that time almost unknown in Germany’s executive search market – as a new strategic area for his former employer.

In 2010, Dirk joined Kienbaum as Partner and Member of the Management Board. As Head of Insurance and Deputy Head of the Financial Services Practice Group Dirk has been constantly focusing on challenging recruitments for clients in the insurance and reinsurance industry. At the same time, Dirk is also our Head of Legal. In this role, he has been successfully working on demanding recruitments of partners and lawyers for national and international law firms, tax consultancies and accountancies as well as filling legal, tax and compliance positions for clients ranging from German medium-sized enterprises up to multinational groups.

With his 17 years of professional experience in national and international search projects, Dirk possesses a track record of 350+ successful placements, an impressive list of long-lasting client relationships, in-depth market knowledge both in insurance and legal and a wide-spread network of personal contacts to executives, specialists and young talents.
