CHAMPIONING
LEADERS

Established in 2006, AltoPartners is a leading international alliance of retained executive search and leadership consulting firms. We are not bound by global off-limits and our flexible, independent and locally-relevant approach to executive search makes us unique. Our proven search and assessment methodologies, industry expertise, existing network of professional contacts, and our impressive timelines provide our clients and candidates with the best results at every opportunity.

We believe that talent often comes in unexpected packages. Where other firms see race, gender, age, culture, personality types, personal values, experience and qualifications in isolated silos, we see a set of characteristics that set candidates apart and make them perfect in the right context. We don’t just talk about diversity and inclusion, we actively live it, embrace it and drive it forward in each and every search, positioning us as strategic advisors in the search for diverse and inclusive talent.
