The secret of truly exceptional businesses is that they are driven by leaders who are genuinely engaged with their people & their customers. At Ampersand we know this delivers a 22% increase in sustainable growth & commercial return.

Turnover of key executives remains high. The average tenure of CEOs in Australia is 3.9 years (2013). What does this mean?

Ampersand Search removes that risk by delivering bespoke pre & post executive integration services as an integral component of our Search mandate. We go beyond diagnostics.
