Christian Schoyen is a leading expert in retaining talent and building winning teams. He is the founder and CEO of the successful international headhunting company ESR (founded in 1997), with offices in the US and Europe. He has personally been involved in more than 3500 recruitments of specialists/ managers and building hundreds of management teams for Fortune 1000 companies worldwide. For board of directors he also assists as a facilitator to drive the management team forward according to the strategy set.

Christian's passion and life quest is to identify the top performers in the marketplace for his clients and understanding human behavior to create theories and models for predicting behavior benefiting the corporate world and society. An important factor in his work is Christian's vast knowledge in psychology originating from his work over two decades in the corporate world personally assessing more than 10,000 people, and his 17 year Carl Jung inspired study (1995-2012) of the universal laws of human behavior.

Next to his professional work when time allows for it, he utilizes his experience and skillset from the corporate world to help disadvantaged children and their pets in low-income African-American communities with high crime. Christian is the Founder and Chairman of the non-profit organization: Neighborhood Rescue of America, where his company ESR, as part of the CSR program donates time and resources. His latest pro-bono project, where he applied his blue print for turn arounds is documented in the multi-award winning film, "Vegas Vikings – The 21 Day Challenge", which presents the Nevada project resulting in a record 75% reduction in violent crime in the most dangerous community in Las Vegas, the ethnic neighborhood of Sierra Oeste.
