Profile of founder Marie Sundin



After completing her university education in Stockholm, Sweden, Marie Sundin moved to France in 2005. She rounded off her higher education with an MBA in International Commerce and Management obtained from INSEEC Paris in 2006.


Her keen interest in intercultural management and her Franco-Swedish background rapidly led her to a position in an international Executive Search firm. There she learned about different headhunting techniques and then specialised in identifying and assessing candidates in France and in Nordic countries.


Fluent in Swedish, French and English, Marie Sundin has been conducting since 2006 direct search assignments for executives and managers on behalf of international groups in France and its neighbouring countries as well as in Nordic countries (Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark). As a specialist in headhunting on the Franco-Nordic niche for many years now, Ms Sundin operates in multiple business sectors on behalf of her international clients.


In 2014 after spending eight years in different well-known headhunting firms in Paris, Marie Sundin decided to found MS-search. Today, through her firm, she uses her far-reaching experience in hiring, headhunting and assessment for her clients and her candidates.


Thanks to her dual French and Swedish nationality and extensive professional career in headhunting, Ms Sundin has an organic in-depth understanding of the French and Nordic markets and their specific characteristics, which enables her to bring an invaluable multicultural edge to the assessment of candidates on the Franco-Nordic niche within MS-search. She uses a direct approach to carry out her missions in France, its neighbouring countries, Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark.
