Executive Recruiters

Lester Korn and Richard Ferry firmly believed that an executive search should be conducted only by practicioners who intimately knew the industry, the issues facing the position, the candidates capable of effectively operating in the role and, as important, within the culture of the client’s organization. These time-tested hallmarks remain at the heart of every Korn Ferry engagement.

As the global leader in executive search, Korn Ferry has successfully placed more executives than any other firm. Our seasoned executive recruiters know how to enhance the process and what will derail it.
