To remain relevant in a connected, digital and fast-changing world environment, professional services firms are undergoing a drastic journey of reinvention, the true first transformation since the establishment of the industry in the early 20th century.

The race for scale, breadth and depth of expertise is on: grow, consolidate or specialise is the name of the game. Inside these firms, tremendous changes are taking place, with the disappearance of the monolithic partner model, demand for leaders combining, business drive, deep expertise, senior relationship ability and the capacity to be the conductor of a complex orchestra of capabilities. Poaching at senior level among firms is rife and retention an issue, hugely amplified by the aspirations of the new generations of consultants.

These trends are particularly strong in emerging markets, notably across Asia, under the pressures of a shallow pool of senior talent, and the subscale nature of the local economies and practices.

We specialise on complex and sensitive recruiting of partners, senior partners and practice/office leaders to assist industry shapers deliver their growth aspirations. We serve them through both time-bounded single partner recruiting and multi-year building of entire regional leadership team.

We use a proprietary tailored approach for these searches, that includes for example, tools to source industry candidate without prior consulting experience; progressive, self-discovery engagement process between the candidates and our clients; methods to co-create with our client and candidates a transition program for success during the recruiting process; dedicated 12-month on-boarding programs to maximize chances of success.

We are an industry leader and a number of our consultants are ex-partners at prestigious firms, fully connected with their alumni network.
