What We Do

Executive Search

With more than a decade of experience in identifying and securing high performing executives, Savannah offers a rigorous global search process based on deep functional and industry knowledge. Our partner-delivered model combines the quality, agility and dedication of a boutique firm, with the resources and capability of a larger search firm.

Diverse Leadership

Savannah Group is committed to supporting all forms of diversity. As a specialist Executive Search and Interim firm we have more than 15 years’ experience placing diverse candidates into senior leadership teams. We have a fresh approach and are passionate about helping leadership teams achieve greater business performance through access to a diverse range of talent.

McKinsey’s 2020 report ‘Diversity Wins’ highlights that the relationship between diversity on executive teams and the likelihood of financial outperformance has strengthened over time. It found that, gender representation stands at 15% while ethnic and cultural diversity stands at 14% in executive teams.

Our service is tailored and personal, and as a result we are trusted by some of the most forward-thinking businesses internationally to help them acquire high quality, diverse senior leaders.

We have a proven track record of locating and securing diverse candidates, particularly in male-dominated industries and functions.

Committed to client success

Identifying the right balance of talent to lead an organisation is a difficult challenge. We have a strong track record of Board, Executive and Non-Executive placements across functions and industries, and always take the time to understand your company, your culture and your objectives. Through this approach, we are able to act as an extension of you within the market.

  • More than 1,000 senior placements in the last five years

  • 85% repeat business

  • Greater access to high performers than larger search firms

Access The Best

Major global search firms run thousands of searches a year, and as a result aren’t always able to approach who they want due to extensive client off-limit restrictions. Savannah combines the quality, agility and dedication of a boutique firm with the specialism and global capability of a larger search firm.

Top Tier Specialists

We focus exclusively on the most senior roles within our specialist areas, providing deep insights into your competitive landscape, and only approach who we consider to be in the top ten percent of global talent.

Immediate & Long Term Impact

We are one of the only firms to have a truly integrated search and interim offering, able to provide short term tactical and long term strategic hiring solutions. This provides clients access to the human capital resources they need right now, whatever maturity stage your business is in.

Beyond Borders

Your personal, specialist team, supports and searches globally wherever you have a need. Partners always conduct the work at Savannah rather than just overseeing it.

A pleasure to work with. They got to know and understand our business over a number of years and share a similar outlook on how to do business – focusing on the long-term, treating people well, working hard, taking pride and delivering an outstanding experience. They don’t over-promise, and the quality of advice and counsel I received throughout the recent process was fantastic.

Jonathon Swaine, Managing Director

Against a challenging brief, their subject matter expertise and advice was invaluable. We were delighted that they produced a shortlist of high calibre candidates very quickly and we moved to offer at great speed and with a superb outcome. They knew the market, are well networked and their partnership and responsiveness was above expectations.

Julie O’Donoghue, Global HR Business Lead

Very responsive, found quality people for us, and quickly understood our culture to find people that are a strong fit. Even if there have been challenges they have always found a way to solve the problems and create solutions. The partnership and collaboration has been a positive for us.

Your Personal Guide

Our consultants have on average more than 15 years of search experience within each of their specialised areas, bringing unparalleled levels of expertise, credibility and trust among clients and candidates alike.

Executive Search

Short-Term and Long-Term Transformation

We are one of the only firms to have a truly integrated search and interim offering, and as a result, we are able to provide senior leaders who specialise in short-term or long-term transformational change.

Unlike other firms, our interim management and search practices aren’t siloed or disconnected. That regular back and forth communication means that we consider candidates that might otherwise be overlooked. Candidates aren’t binary anymore, with increasing numbers interested more in the challenge than in the nature of the contract. This approach helps you make the right strategic hire for your current need.
