Independent advice on people

About us



What we do

We guide boards and executive teams through their most critical people choices helping them to anticipate change and prepare for growth and transformation.

We provide executive and non-executive search services as well as board advice to the world’s largest corporations, ambitious small and medium-sized businesses, leading private equity firms, entrepreneurs and family-owned businesses.

We have acted for over 40 of the FTSE 100 as well as 45 of the Fortune Global 500 companies and have placed 10% of the current FTSE 100 Chairs and CEOs. Around a third of our activity is engaged in private markets.

We are ambitious for our clients, helping Chairs, CEOs and CHROs build high performing teams and plan long term succession.


Our Unique model

We are different in that all of our partners are rewarded equally.

This enables us to have a single, clear focus without conflict of interest and without compromising on quality. Our advice is simple, clear and considered.

We think creatively and broadly around a brief ensuring diversity of thought, as well as skill-set or geography, to help organisations stay competitive.

We are the only independent, specialist board advisory and executive search firm that operates globally. Our judgement is underpinned by our global access, network and experience enabling us to structure teams to best suit the requirements of our clients.

On every assignment, we bring the collective wisdom of the firm to bear. Working out of London, we have one of the most experienced and internationally-minded teams in the industry.
