2020 Top Executive Search Firm is meant to be a resource for companies seeking to understand the complexities of the executive search/ recruiting industry. Our research offers prospective employers a comprehensive look at the top executive search firms by offering resources, opinions, and rankings as a guide to helping you choose the best firm to meet your executive search needs. We do not accept payment from executive search firms for inclusion on our lists, we do accept input and feedback from firms on the list. We do not accept advertising from industry partners, vendors, suppliers, and employers.

The rankings noted on this site are deemed reliable, but cannot be guaranteed as some of the data is provided by firms ranked on the list, and such data, especially in the case of privately held companies, cannot be exhaustively verified.
