We bring a Wall Street dynamic to executive search by getting the best leaders to the table. We are fast and rigorous, validating leadership performance as well as ethics as part of our approach to high value search.

We connect our clients with innovative business leaders and functional experts in:

Banking thrives on ambitious, bright and astute dealmakers. The challenge is matching the right expertise to shifting market opportunities and demand. Tech-based niche providers are dismantling the value chain, new competitors are emerging and banks are striving to secure the right talent – creative rainmakers with key skills.

During the global economic crisis there was little movement at MD level among corporate and investment banks, creating a bottleneck for VPs and Directors. Together with hiring freezes and reputational issues affecting the sector, this has impacted the talent pool, making it difficult for banks to attract the right people – particularly among the millennial segment – during periods of macro-economic and political uncertainty.

As banks continue to restructure and focus resources in both front and back office, we help them discover transformational leaders: those who can redefine the business and operating models; manage risk, regulation and capital; all while establishing a stronger, more innovative culture where use of data and information supports institutional growth and client value.
