In 2019, to enhance our capability and reach, we have launched our Central Eastern Europe hub in Poland.
As a market leader we take pride in two things: delivery and quality of service. Our experience has taught us that every client deserves a custom-designed solution to truly match their identity and company culture.
As your preferred recruitment partner we will find you the best person for the job.
Let our experience help you navigate the complexities of regional market access with its cultural, geopolitical and socioeconomic challenges.
Sylvia is co-founder and managing partner at DNA.
A trained architect, she discovered her true calling in empowering people to unlock their potential and build their dream career.
A good listener with attention to detail and an eye for talent, she manages DNA’s strategic accounts and handles senior executive search assignments.
She has gained the respect and trust of key healthcare industry leaders by consistently demonstrating a feel for the sector and combining a straightforward personality with exemplary service delivery.
Sylvia is most passionate about celebrating and endorsing diversity in a corporate context. In a region not yet known for equality in its hiring practices, she provides a voice for those who face gender, nationality, religious, educational or age discrimination.
She gets her energy from HIIT workouts, salsa and running after her two young kids.
Daniel has over 15 years’ experience in the CEEMEA life sciences recruitment industry.

Daniel is the proud father of Noah and Maya, and is incredibly grateful for the experiences the Middle East has afforded him.
A good team is always greater than the sum of its parts. Our consultants are from different backgrounds and possess different skillsets. Yet they all share a commitment to high quality delivery and building long-lasting relationships based on mutual trust and respect.
