executive search

​We help our clients find the best people, build successful teams, and generate value for shareholders through excellence. We find exceptional leaders who are in tune with your markets and the culture of your organization. At AaronRichards, we develop close and effective working partnerships with you to ensure we understand your strategic issues and search requirements. This relationship is based on listening, integrity and trust.

Success in search requires being in tune with local markets. Our search consultants have close relationships with business leaders, having deep roots in their communities. Our consultants understand emerging regional issues and provide you with important local insights. We have the coverage to search the world for talent and tap into the increasingly international pool of senior executive leaders. We deliver executive search and leadership consulting solutions through our powerful network of search consultants throughout the world.  We seek the best candidates, wherever they are located; the extensive cooperation among our global partners enables us to spread a far-reaching net to find just the right person.

Our approach is rooted in consulting. We listen closely to understand your situation and your needs. You may be inclined towards a leadership assessment, management audit, cultural review, or other focused investigation. You may also benefit from other value-added services such as market intelligence, leadership advice, competitive analysis or market benchmarking.

In a world where CVs are available everywhere on the internet, we add value and insight to the identification of singularly viable candidates. Our work is founded on a comprehensive, disciplined approach that ensures finding suitable candidates who match above and beyond your technical requirements.

Our approach enables us to respond with a rapid and deep understanding of your needs:

  • Hands-On Senior Service: Our search consultants are hands-on partners and senior staff, with extensive experience. We work directly and closely with you to understand your needs and ensure a successful search.
  • Needs Analysis and Statement of Requirements: We work with you to understand your needs and develop a Statement of Requirements to define the search.
  • Prospect Identification: We understand where your ideal candidate is likely to be found and identify the right international pool of executive talent. We access our network of industry connections for referrals and recommendations. This is highly customized research which finds candidates with the ideal fit.
  • Prospect Research and Qualification: We investigate our prospects thoroughly and only approach those with the strongest potential. We then qualify those candidates using third-party information and interviews.
  • Presentation: We present only those candidates who are a viable and a real leadership option for your firm.
  • Assessment: We carry out a formal assessment of candidates under serious consideration, working in alignment with your assessment methodology, or utilizing our own proven methods.
