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.
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.
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.
Sebastien Froidefond, Chief Human Resources Officer
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.
In today’s world of uncertain economies, high unemployment and squeezed margins, growing world class finance leaders is a core focus area for many finance functions, not only in terms of tightly managing financial performance, but also in terms of attracting and retaining the very best talent to enable a business to meet its strategic goals and enhance competitive advantage.
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.
Savannah is committed to diversity of gender, race and thought. We were one of the first executive search signatories for the voluntary code of conduct to address gender diversity on corporate boards, are a member of the 30% club and of the women city network, and more than 1/3rd of our partners are female.
We have a proven track record of locating and securing diverse candidates, particularly in male-dominated industries and functions.
