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.
