Executive Search Leaders


We help our clients attract Partner Level Executive Search professionals operating at the Board and C-Suite level and Partner Level Leadership Advisory Consultants with expertise in board effectiveness, culture shaping, succession planning, executive assessment, employee engagement, DE&I, talent development, merger integration, and many other facets of culture and organisational effectiveness. In all cases, we only work with clients looking for individuals in senior leadership or significant revenue-generating roles.

Driven by an underlying focus on quality, we have been chosen as the first and only official global partner and advisor to The Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants (AESC). We came together with other AESC partners in signing their Diversity Pledge, steadfast in our commitment to examining the faults and failures in our lives and exercising our privilege to be thought leaders who make a difference in our vital role in serving the Executive Search Industry.

We have completed Partner level searches in 37 countries and successfully advised on corporate mergers across the US, Australia and, more recently, Japan, Mexico, China, Hong Kong and Singapore. Our M&A and Partner search work has enabled our clients to achieve strategic growth faster, providing them with a significant competitive advantage, deeper market penetration, and increased profitability.

We focus on building long-term retained relationships, not just winning retained assignments, meaning we have very few off-limits globally. Our relentless commitment to excellence has earned our clients' confidence, many of whom we have worked with for more than ten years.

Our rigorous search service includes mergers, acquisitions, and team lift-outs; strategic counsel on compensation variables; and advisory services on strategy, change, growth, leadership assessment, and operational improvement.


"We are search professionals, thought leaders, client partners, and strategic advisors at the forefront of our industry. We commit to clients over many years, helping them gain market share, create long-term financial value and build businesses at the cutting edge of their industries. Our focus and depth of expertise enable us to provide unparalleled insight and context to our clients."

- Nick Workman, Managing Partner
