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?

Differentiated Leadership Talent

When appointing an Executive Leadership Team there’s no room for error. 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. We source, assess and appoint with the outlook of sustained quality and success being measured well beyond the first 100 days — or in fact the first six months.

Since inception Ampersand has led and delivered Executive Search mandates across C-Suite, Commercial & Functional Heads of Business and General Management levels – across Australia, Asia and Europe.  Ampersand Search is focused on: partnering with executive leaders that possess a clear mandate on disrupting the current context, to shape the future; a dedication to building trusted relationships; proven delivery and; exposure to a fully equipped research function.  We cannot change the wind, however we can assist in building your executive people capability to ensure the sails are reset.

Trusted Partners

We welcome a relationship with you, not simply when you are actively searching for your next leadership appointment but throughout the cycle of your career journey. We’re here for the long haul with you.

Above all, we assure complete confidence and privacy when we engage with you at every touch point.
