When embarking on a process as important as a leadership hire, you need to backing of an expert team.

Research shows that the cost of mis-hires at leadership level is significant, estimated around 3.5x first years compensation as a minimum. On average, 46% of new leadership hires typically last just 18 months. Those figures are hard to stomach and yet are the reality for many businesses.

We understand the importance of getting it right first time, and the transformative effect that a great leadership hire can have on your business.

With competition for sought after leadership talent at an all time high, it’s the small margins that typically deliver successful outcomes. A well structured search process combined with a thorough yet efficient assessment process can be the difference in that leader of choice choosing your business, over a competitor.

We can’t promise it will always be easy, but we do promise to work with you until the end, overcoming all obstacles that might present themselves, to see every project through to successful completion.
