Global reach,
local knowledge.

Since 2002, successfully delivering local executive talent through a global network of IESF partners.

International Executive Search Federation is one of the world’s most recognized international executive search groups / associations. Identifying talent and leadership in 50 offices and 25 countries, we are globally known as “The Local Experts” because we understand regional markets and their specific needs when it comes to executive recruitment. We offer a fully customized, local approach to search projects, based on culture, regional economics and the local candidate marketplace. We never seek to impose a “one-size-fits-all” solution. Our search process is optimized to the local culture.
