CHAMPIONING
LEADERS

Established in 2006, AltoPartners is a leading international alliance of retained executive search and leadership consulting firms. We believe that the greatest asset to every successful business is its people, as their impact extends across the entire organization. At AltoPartners, we are not bound by global off-limits and our flexible, independent and locally-relevant approach to executive search makes us unique. Our innate understanding that defines both the context of the search and the ensuing candidate profile are key in our ultimate search success. This approach assists our clients in identifying and developing world-class leadership teams that strive for economies of scale, as they transcend global competitive markets.

Our alliance is not oblivious to the fact that talent often comes in unexpected packages. Where other firms see race, gender, age, culture, personality types, personal values, experience and qualifications in silos, we see a set of characteristics that set candidates apart in the right context. Our proven assessment and search methodologies, industry expertise, existing network of professional contacts, and our impressive timelines provide our clients and candidates with the best results at every opportunity.

LEADERSHIP CONSULTING

Today’s ever-changing global economic landscape demands a change in the leadership dynamics of organizations. Businesses are recognizing that to remain successful, thought leaders, positive agitators, rousing innovators and divergent thinkers are needed.

Our strategic leadership offerings are designed to not only provide high quality executive transitions at individual and enterprise levels, but also to build the employer brand by encouraging better leadership decisions, which are pivotal to the growth of any business. We are trusted advisors who understand specific business needs, and offer professional, candid, and discreet advice. AltoPartners is committed to the highest levels of ethics and integrity in all our engagements.
