IESF unveils a new era with fresh branding and enhanced commitment to values and ethics

In an exciting development that marks a significant milestone in the history of the International Executive Search Federation (IESF), IESF proudly announces the launch of its rebranded identity and revamped website, This strategic transformation comes after a unanimous decision during the last Annual Global Meeting (AGM) held in September 2023 in Singapore, where all IESF partners voted for the new logo and committed to reinforcing the values and ethics that distinguish our network.
