It is now one of the top independent Executive Search companies in Italy and the indisputable leader in the Northeast.

At Dotto ReSearch we believe that the key to winning the game lies in having the right players: daring leaders who look to the future, set ambitious goals for themselves and develop innovative and effective strategies and game plans; men and women of value, who believe in their abilities and are motivated to put them at the service of a shared objective.

Since 1985 we have supported companies in their search for the best human resources for their organizations, displaying skill, passion, tenacity, precision, discretion and confidentiality. But more importantly we have been close to our Candidates, whom we follow, assist and advise in their career development.

We have helped many Italian companies to grow internationally as well as many foreign multinational companies to strengthen their presence in Italy.
