Irene Van Staten , Director Business Development , RiskCo


Ad Capita has been the strategic HR partner to BMW Group companies in Portugal since 2003 and we are extremely pleased with the results over this period. I have found their recruitment processes to be outstanding and, in line with our culture, they take great care in treating candidates fairly and transparently, both during and after recruitment. Their advice and support to our Board on key HR matters such as succession planning and change management has proved invaluable.

Jens Freitag , CEO , BMW Bank


In my capacity as Managing Director of BMW Group Portugal I had the pleasure of working with Rui Borges over a 5 year period. Rui and his company Ad Capita did an outstanding job in recruiting the entire team of about 60 people for the start-up of BMW Group Portugal. Following the initial hiring phase Rui worked with BMW to ensure that all personel related issues where dealt with in a professional manner and respecting Portuguese culture. Throughout the years Rui has proven himself an excellent partner for BMW in Portugal – always available and able to provide coaching/support that made a difference to the team and the company. I can highly recommend Rui and Ad Capita.

We contracted Ad Capita Executive Search to find senior exploration managers for us because we believed you had a real capability to recruit globally in the oil & gas market. We were right. You provided us with exactly the kind of world class candidates we needed, from a wide variety of countries and companies. You were always on time and kept us fully informed every step of the way. I also felt you treated candidates very fairly and supportively, which is important to us. I would strongly recommend Ad Capita for this kind of global recruitment.

Carlos Alves , General Manager E&P , Galp Energia


In the last 2 decades I’ve worked with several executive search firms. His wide insight of the right candidate valencies, both on hard and soft skills, and focus on added value characteristics is outstanding. It is really uncommon to work with a partner with such a strong empathetic behaviour that you naturally considers him one of us !!!

Mario Garrido , CEO , Audatex a Solera Company


Ad Capita consultants coached me for a period of six months when I was Sales & Marketing Director in Portugal. They helped me transform my leadership style and take a much more objective and open approach to my role and my working relationships. They then became my mentors and their advice and thoughtful, external view was extremely useful to me in evaluating business and career decisions. I am very grateful to Ad Capita, who also provided us with outstanding executive search services.

Christoph Stolle , Vice President Global Brands , Grünenthal Gmbh


Rui gave us a timepath and an expected result. It was a pleasure to work with him and he has delivered as promised. Great working with him and looking forward to work with him again in the future.

Cees Krijgsman , CEO , PraxisIFM


While I was searching for potential Portuguese candidates for a corporate position for our Headquarters in Germany, I have had the opportunity to meet 4 candidates (who corresponded exactly to the requested profile…not always the case nowadays!) Excellent preparation and high quality of the service provided by Mr. Borges.

Christophe Gourlan , Chief Sales Officer , Hansgrohe Group
