Synapse Executive Search was born to respond to a challenge that no other Executive Search firm fully addresses: identifying, approaching and attracting Emerging Executives – candidates at a turning point in their careers in leadership roles.
Major companies compete heavily for these candidates: they are of strategic importance for demographic reasons (as “baby boomers” retire), and are of particular importance as markets are increasingly globalised. This group of individuals is also critical to companies in their succession plan at board level.
Their usual partners are often of limited help to attract these talents:
- Large traditional Executive Search networks often offer relevant solutions in recruiting for top board-level positions, with senior candidates at the peaks of their careers. Emerging executives are not their core business.
- Large generalist recruitment firms too often lack the skills needed to work with demanding candidates who seek personalised attention and guidance over the long term.
With this in mind, we have focussed our efforts to offer unrivalled service in the search for high-potential individuals. We offer our clients – both major brands and growing companies – a standard of service that until now has only been available for search assignments targeting board-level roles for the largest of corporations.
