Transformational Talent Delivers Competitive Advantage

In a fast moving and constantly changing world, our global network delivers competitive advantage for our clients by building leadership teams and securing senior talent who are experts in leveraging innovation and creativity to drive successful business transformation.     

One Global Team for Unparalleled Intelligence


With eight offices worldwide, we are the only global executive search firm specialising in transformational talent across all disciplines in marketing and communications.


We operate one global P+L and collaborate as one global team, so we can harness the collective expertise and intelligence of our whole network to deliver an agile and rigorous response for any given search.  Over half of our seventy staff are equity partners and formerly leading practitioners in creative businesses.  All of us are salaried, not paid on commission.  Together, in the last year, we have successfully delivered over 450 business leaders and senior talent worldwide.


Diversity Drives Business Transformation


Diversity fuels innovation and creativity, driving business transformation and commercial success.  Delivering transformational talent from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences for every search that we handle is a priority for The Talent Business and a business imperative for our clients. 


Securing An Advantage In M&A & Agency Reviews


In addition to our core executive search business, we also advise communications agency groups on their international acquisition strategies and have completed transactions in the US, UK, Germany, France, Brazil, India and China.


Our consultancy arm, Global Agency Search, advises international brand owners on the selection of transformational agency partners.
