MUNICH, February 25, 2015 - Heidrick & Struggles (Nasdaq:HSII), the premier provider of Executive Search, Leadership Consulting and Culture Shaping worldwide, strengthens its Technology expertise among the global practices with the addition of Tim Luedke.

Through his two decades of IT experience, Luedke has worked closely with top executives across the global business landscape and began his search career under the guidance of Heiner Thorborg. “Tim brings extensive experience in several of our most important sectors and understands the delicate balance of technology and leadership. His deep knowledge will help our clients make an organizational impact through the use of technology while his widespread career in search will enable Heidrick to further solidify ourselves as the preferred search firm in the German marketplace,” said Michael Cullen, Managing Partner, Global Technology Services Practice, Heidrick & Struggles.

Luedke most recently worked as a partner at Xellento, a Munich based executive search firm offering consulting expertise and sophisticated executive recruitment. He has also served as a board member at Graphisoft, Nemetschek-Vectorworks and Maxon Computer.

Before his time at Xellento, Luedke was the Chief Executive of Nemetschek, a global AEC (architecture, engineering, construction) software company. Prior to this he worked as Executive Director, and later as Managing Director of the International Technology Practice at a global executive search firm. With the search firm, he filled leadership positions in the areas of hardware, services/outsourcing, software and telecommunications.

Luedke began his tech career at CompuNet where he worked as both an Account and Sales Manager. After the acquisition by General Electric in 1996, he quickly ascended into a leadership role becoming a Managing Director of GE Capital’s Information Technology Solutions unit. In this position, Luedke played a vital role in restructuring significant parts of the organization throughout Germany. Succeeding his time as Managing Director, Luedke served as the CEO for Austria before selling that portion of the business. Lüdke cultivated additional leadership capabilities and technology expertise when he served as the Director and General Manager of Large Corporate & Global Accounts in Central Europe for Dell Computer.
