Finding your next leader

At EC1 Executive we understand that hiring the right CEO or C-Suite professional is critical to the success of any business. To achieve this, we take a meticulous and systematic approach that
involves defining the necessary skills and experience and conducting comprehensive and in-depth assessments and interviews. We ensure that key stakeholders, including the board of directors and senior executives, are involved in the decision-making process. Our commitment to diversity, equity & inclusion, and creating a positive work culture empowers every member of our team to contribute, grow, and excel. Our deep industry expertise, robust network of contacts and relationships, and focus on success enable us to consistently deliver high-quality candidates to our clients. 

Champion DE&I and focus on sustainability

Sustainability and diversity are key components of successful executive search and recruitment.
With the majority of businesses prioritising sustainability when looking to recruit senior
executives, it is clear that a sustainable mindset is critical for businesses to thrive. As customers, clients, employees, and shareholders increasingly demand companies focus on the triple bottom line, we prioritise finding leaders who embed sustainability into their business strategy and operations. Additionally, we champion diversity in executive search by providing access to a diverse pool of talent and working with our clients to create succession plans that incorporate diversity at every step.
