Last year we conducted more than 4,000 assignments around the world. Our team of more than 300 consultants possesses a unique blend of professional search experience and industry expertise. Consultants are organized in practices and work in teams, often across international boundaries that maximize sector specialization and knowledge-sharing. These client service teams are supported by first-rate associates and researchers, and backed by state-of-the-art technology. We place quality at the center of everything we do and solicit candid feedback at every opportunity in order to continually improve our service to clients. We channel our knowledge and expertise into a wide range of publications for the benefit of existing and prospective clients.
