NELEX was founded by Karsten Berge. After more than fifteen years of experience in the IT and telecommunications industry, Berge initially founded SearchConsult GmbH in 2006, which he turned into one of the largest recruitment consultancies in the field of digitalisation and IT. Most recently, he was responsible for almost 70 recruiting specialists and an annual turnover in the high single-digit millions.
In 2017, Karsten Berge and SearchConsult were awarded 4 stars as "Best Recruiters" by Wirtschaftswoche issue 51/2017 and nominated by Experteer for the "Headhunter of the Year" Award 2017 in the category "Executive Search".
In 2019, Karsten Berge is taking the next step: he is founding NELEX to realise his vision of the consistent and end-to-end digital-intelligent-driven recruitment process.
With NELEX AG, Berge and his team have already been awarded 5 stars several times by WirtschaftsWoche as the best HR consultancy in the categories "Digitalisation" and "IT" as well as "Consulting/Professional Services". In addition, NELEX has also been ranked several times as the top personnel service provider in the "Executive Search" category by FOCUS magazine.
