Executive Search


a. Global Advantage

Regional and global searches can be performed for our clients to consider a wider range of candidates from all locations and companies within the industry.

With Barons & Company's worldwide executive search network (IMSA), country, regional and global searches can be performed for our clients.

  • We take a customized "hands on" approach for our clients without having the "hands off" challenges faced by larger generalist firms or the single industry boutique firms.
  • Our search methodologies provide our clients with top-tier candidates from best practices platforms in their industry sector or from related industries, rather than "best available" candidates due to "hands off" client restrictions.
  • Our consultants are actively involved from conception to completion of the search process, including candidate sourcing and research analysis. The approach shortens the duration of the assignment and enhances the advisory role of the consultant.
  • We provide global services with local expertise. We believe publicly listed search firms have potential conflicts of interest between the confidentiality requirements of clients and the disclosure requirement of shareholders. Our corporate structure and effective management allow us to maintain our ethics and professionalism. There are no barriers between consultants, which allows for effective teamwork in all our search assignments.
