Who we are
The Talent Business is the world leader in executive search for creative businesses. We are the only global executive search firm specializing in marketing and communications.
Our approach to search is shaped by our belief that commercial success comes from putting creativity at the heart of a business and not treating it as a silo or as an afterthought.
We place the best creative leaders in the industry and when businesses want creativity to drive growth and transformation, they turn to us. Over 450 business leaders and senior talent were hired through The Talent Business globally in 2016 – more than any other firm operating in this space.
Our 70 staff have all worked within the brand management and creative communications industry. They know the emerging and senior talent across all communications disciplines better than anyone else.
We run one global P&L and collaborate as one global team, leveraging our collective IP, experience and insight to deliver a comprehensive and rigorous search.
Over forty of our staff have an equity interest and are Partners in The Talent Business. Each Partner is appraised and rewarded based on their expertise, professionalism, integrity and collaboration.
In addition to our core executive search business, we also advise agency groups on their international acquisition strategies and have completed transactions in the US, UK, Germany, France, Brazil, India and China.
Our consultancy arm, Global Agency Search, helps international brand owners secure transformational agency partners by leveraging our unique perspective on agency leadership, capabilities and cultures.
