Executive Search
A pioneer in executive search. And still leading the way.

Executive transitions are pivot points; the right leader can dramatically alter the trajectory of your organization. With the stakes so high, we know it’s not enough to identify someone with the right experience. The right candidate must also have the ability to fit the culture—and the influence to rally the business around their vision.

For nearly 70 years, we’ve helped some of the world’s most storied companies build successful, diverse senior leadership teams. Our relationship-based approach lets us execute a search with uncommon speed, sophistication and precision. Through our tech-enabled assessments, we help clients shrink the haystack and find the right match. And after a successful placement, we offer clients the consultative expertise they need to thrive long-term.

Heirick & Struggles is proud to be a platinum sponsor of the 2023 Fortune MPW Summit

The last few years have tested business leaders in unprecedented ways, from the Covid-19 pandemic to a social and racial reckoning on a global scale. Despite these challenges, many businesses boomed and the pace of innovation only accelerated. What’s more, business leaders stepped up, realizing the power of their platform in new ways. Now, as we face economic headwinds, how do we make sure that we don’t lose sight of the progress leaders have made in embracing a more holistic and empathetic approach to leadership, of taking all stakeholders into account, and of recognizing the power of their platform to bring about change. How do we rise to the occasion—and the challenge—that 2023 presents?
