Maria Kopecky (previously Maria Buzinkayova) has served clients in the finance and technology industry as well as privately held enterprises for more than 14 years, gaining an excellent reputation among clients as well as candidates. She has been working in international executive search since 2006 and was appointed the Principal & Head of Research in 2015.
Maria is particularly valued for her sunny nature and can-do attitude. Her network, hard work, and excellent memory have been invaluable in placing candidates across all management levels. Aided by her language skills, Maria has successfully completed board-level recruiting assignments not only in Austria but also in CEE. She is a native speaker of Slovak, a near-native speaker of German and is fluent in English, Czech, and Russian.
Maria is also an expert when it comes to personality assessments such as the HOGAN Assessment, which we offer as additional support in the decision-making process if desired by our clients.
Maria studied business administration at Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration. In 2010, she completed her PhD in international business management. Being a very inquisitive person, her further studies did not stop there. She continues to study personality assessments and is certified to administer Hogan Assessments and ITO-Potential Analyses.
Maria began her professional career at another highly regarded international executive search company. She went on to gain experience at a law firm and a tax consultancy, giving her the opportunity to further develop her analytic abilities. Throughout her career, Maria has shown a quick grasp of complex requirements and high flexibility.
