AESC Welcomes Executive Headlines into its Global Membership

The Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants (AESC), a global professional association representing excellence in executive search and leadership advisory solutions, announced the approval of Executive Headlines/ IIC Partners into its global membership. The firm’s acceptance follows extensive vetting, including reference checks, site visits, votes by AESC regional councils and commitment to the AESC Code of Professional Practice.

With offices in both Johannesburg and Cape Town, Executive Headlines/ IIC Partners delivers executive search and leadership consulting services, from assessment and development to succession planning and culture integration. The firm values a strong working relationship based on mutual respect and trust with both clients and candidates.  Confidentiality is the cornerstone of their service offering. Their client base is intentionally limited in order to ensure that they are able to approach candidates from a larger pool of companies without compromising their ethics.

Managing Partner, Carilyn Oxley commented: "We are delighted to become part of the AESC membership and look forward to the value that this will add to our organisation and to our service offering. Collaborating with fellow members can only strengthen our professional standing in our industry and we welcome the learning that will come from this association."
