We have an impressive track record of successful senior appointments across technical and commercial disciplines, covering management, VP and CxO level.

When we engage with you on a new brief our prior market knowledge means that a) we know the right questions to ask and b) the 'research phase' is already well underway. Our comprehensive multi-stage search process will deliver thoroughly vetted executives who make the right lasting impression on your company - with one key difference: our fee structure is more weighted towards success than traditional models.
