The Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants Approves Baxter Executive Search Into its Global Membership

The Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants (AESC), the global professional association representing excellence in executive search and leadership advisory solutions, announces the approval of Baxter Executive Search into its global membership. The firm’s acceptance comes after a rigorous vetting process, including reference checks, site visits, votes by AESC regional councils and commitment to the AESC Code of Professional Practice. This acceptance into AESC follows Baxter Executive Search’s recent acceptance into ECI Group’s global network of retained, boutique executive search firms.  

Headquartered in Auckland, New Zealand, Baxter Executive Search is a retained executive search firm focused on Senior Executive, Chief Executive and Board appointments. Baxter Executive Search also has special expertise in several sectors, including agribusiness, manufacturing, science and research, building, logistics, and infrastructure sectors. The firm’s years of experience have informed its customized six-step search process. The process begins with a needs analysis, during which Baxter Executive Search works to understand an organization’s strategy, vision and culture, and ends with follow-up and retention, during which the firm’s consultants ensure a smooth transition and integration. The firm also specializes in several services in addition to executive search, including talent benchmarking and succession planning. 

Founder of the firm, Jo Baxter, commented: 

“It is a privilege to join these two leading organizations. We look forward to providing our clients and our people with broader access to global thought leadership and on-the-ground capability in other markets. We are excited to collaborate with a dynamic network of highly respected leaders to strengthen our high-quality executive search offering.”
