On our 40th anniversary, we are most grateful to those who have made our last four decades possible.

The Interlangue Group, Inc. was founded in 1979 by Danelle Dann.
The first twenty-eight years were dedicated to executive search for foreign banking in New York. During the first decade (1980-1990) several European and Asian banks opened in New York, coinciding with our beginning.
With our area of expertise being Treasury and Corporate Finance, we were in a position to associate a large number of Chief Executive Officers, Treasurers, Corporate and Investment Banking officers, as well as Controllers, CPAs, and In-House Counsels with our clients.
The business profiles generally sought through our offices consisted of substantive educational backgrounds, and upward of 15 or 20 years of business experience. As is expected, the market in its cyclicality presented us with many crises; irrespectively we did continue our march alongside our clientele. As we have never distinguished between client and candidate, our relationships with our clients have been most resilient.
The financial crisis is 2008 proved nearly fatal to our firm. From eleven associates we were now lucky to retain three, and this after absorbing the September 11th, 2001 events.
There was, as sometimes there is, a silver lining to this cloud: Professor Doctor van der Huigg, my former professor from München, and his son, Maximilian, joined Interlangue, after years of debate: once on board, in a short time, we established a presence in Geneva, Switzerland, with a related but different profile: Management Consulting with European and American Research Groups/Institutes, Denkfabriken. Our activity now is pronouncedly more labor-intensive, as we must cover both U.S. and E.U. business hours.
Our clients, a very small community, do not court or accept publicity, and consequently, we have been publishing ever-diminishing numbers of data. All material related to present assignments is to be treated as proprietary. This is not a new trend, quite the contrary: given the exposure of sensitive information on the internet, this seemed to be an attraction for those involved in breaching security for their purposes, and we were unfortunate enough to have to suffer their attentions.
