We are an owner-run executive search agency specialising in the rail sector and associated transport activities. Our domestic and international searches lead to the targeted recruitment of qualified management executives and experts who fill our clients’ requirements to the letter.

Experience and expertise in the planning, development and construction of rail vehicles and rail infrastructure as well as rail network operation have now been our hallmark for 24 years.

Executive Search Rail & Transport

In the 36th year of Feige Business Advisors we would like to thank all the clients, applicants
and friends who have placed their trust in us over the last three and a half decades.


„Success requires the right minds“ following this approach since the foundation, the Executive Search human resources consulting with its base in Düsseldorf established by Dieter Feige quickly grew up reputation. At first it was predominantly Asian clients who wanted to successfully establish themselves by means of production plants and subsidiaries in Europe and therefore required high-ranking executives from the sector with the corresponding understanding of culture.

Our engagement in the railway industry starts off with the liberalisation of the railway traffic. At this stage, we had the opportunity to look for all disciplines and trades for executives who were actively involved in shaping the transformation process, and were able to develop our understanding for the comprehensive „ railway system “ as well as expanding our industry know-how from infrastructure and operation by the segment of the rail vehicle technology.

Out of 35 years, the railway industry has been accompanying us for 24 years on a regular basis and has gradually developed to our today’s sole advisory focus and is hence shaping our guiding principle:

„Executive Search Rail & Transport“

By keeping in close touch with our extensive network of contacts in all rail segments and on all levels of hierarchy, we are able to offer a substantiated initial assessment of the current market even before the recruitment process has begun.

Commissioning sees the filling of your vacancy become our number one objective. In addition to speaking directly to suitable candidates, we also make use of our network within the rail sector, activate contacts made at trade fairs, congresses and specialist events and draw on a wealth of railway-related experience gained within the context of previous searches.
