For more than 30 years, our consultants, researchers and staff have been supporting Portuguese and Foreign based companies fill their Recruiting, Assessment and Leadership Development needs of C-suite executives and direct reports. Indeed, what makes us unique in our market is the extent to which the Lisbon office is both deeply connected to the local fabric as a result of our historic presence, and yet anchored in the world’s most globally connected Firm in our space.

We serve clients across all industry sectors in executive and CEO search, Board advisory, CEO succession, executive assessment and development, team effectiveness, culture, and organizational transformation. Our clients include many of the country’s important family-owned firms for whom we act as advisors to both their family offices and for the companies inside their family holdings. A great deal of our work is also in support of private capital, whether these companies are within the portfolio of private equities, or purely privately held entities. For three decades, we have been providing leadership solutions to multinationals that invest in Portugal. Additionally, we have served more than 80% of the companies listed on the Lisbon Stock Exchange Index.

As the leading executive search Firm in Portugal for top management positions, we have unparalleled access to all levels of senior executives across the Portuguese economy. Just as importantly, we maintain a very active network with Portuguese professionals working abroad. As a result, whether it is about attracting, assessing or developing local or overseas talent, we have unmatched access and insight.

We look forward to partnering with you.
