Executive Search

Organizations today need a new breed of business leader—one that can manage immense changes while leading the organization with inspiration and vision.

The executive search team at Russell Reynolds Associates will help you find, recruit, and develop innovative leaders.

Leadership teams today face an array of interconnected challenges and opportunities, from digital transformation and sustainability, to employee wellbeing, culture change, and diversity.

To respond, organizations must recruit new leadership expertise and strengthen their internal leadership pipeline to ensure the executives they bring into their top team can span silos and work as a cohesive unit.

Our executive search consultants have the experience and expertise to find diverse leaders who are ready to answer the questions facing organizations now and tomorrow.

Find your next great leader with our executive search services

A great leader is invaluable but hard to find. That’s where we come in. We find the best candidates for your organization and role using our 50 years of data-backed executive search experience, unparalleled market insights, and rigorous selection process that removes bias.

But our work doesn’t stop there. After finding diverse and qualified candidates, we assess their true strengths and development needs, run a fair hiring process, and make sure your chosen candidate accepts and joins the company on schedule.

Recruit leaders with a focus on sustainability

With 77% of nomination committee chairs saying sustainability is important or extremely important when recruiting senior executives, it’s clear that a sustainable mindset is no longer a “nice to have.

As customers, clients, employees, and shareholders challenge companies to focus on the triple bottom line—people, planet, and profit—we find leaders capable of embedding sustainability into the core of your business strategy and operations.

Champion diversity in your executive search

C-suites and board rooms benefit from a diversity of voices. Yet too often, companies lack a diverse talent pool to fill these roles.

We have access to an unrivaled pool of diverse talent, so can collaborate with you to find your ideal candidates and create succession plans that incorporate diversity into every step.

Learn more about our diversity, equity, and inclusion advisory services.

Prepare for the executive search process

Any executive leadership change or addition is a high-stakes event. We understand that transitioning your new leader into their role is just as important as recruiting the right person. By showing how they can uniquely create value, where they will need support, and any risks associated with the departure of an incumbent, we position you to capitalize quickly on the leadership talent decisions you make.
