Already during his studies for the Bachelor of Adult Education with focus on Human Resource Management and Organisational Development, Thomas Markwirth discovered his passion for recruiting. At that time, he started to work as a Research Specialist for an international Executive Search company in Germany and moved to Switzerland in 2011. As Head of Research, he was responsible for the implementation of complex search requests in collaboration with his team and was, within the company, the responsible person for direct approach. At the same time, he deepened his knowledge with a part-time MBA at the Danube University in Krems/AT and at the British Columbia/CAN. After many years and several successfully completed projects for leading companies of the Life Science and Health Care industry, he joined the MPB Recruitment Group in January 2015, where he is now a Partner. Thomas Markwirth has led over 100 search assignments internationally. He is a member of JCI (Junior Chamber International) and since 2019 a founding member of Rotary Club Basel International.
He is also a proactive person outside the office. Beside enjoying fitness, mountain biking, jogging and snowboarding, he has a passion for diving and riding a motorcycle. He also likes to explore new cultures whilst travelling and spending time with his friends over a good meal.
