Our Company Toggle

Founded in 1969, Corporate Executive Search, Inc.‘s longevity is the result of our ability to engage clients on a deeper level  and to build relationships of trust.

We pride ourselves in being a VALUABLE partner in EXECUTIVE SEARCH, PROFESSIONAL PLACEMENTS, RECRUITMENT PROCESS OUTSOURCING AND CONTINGENT STAFFING.  We understand our clients’ objectives and challenges and collaborate with them to provide services and solutions that lead to long-lasting relationships of 10, 15 even 20 years and beyond.

For us, it is not just about “placing candidates” or sending warm bodies. Building the right executive team and putting the right people in the right jobs and keeping them there for the long haul is the “hard stuff” of business (that is the foundation on which everything else is built!) We therefore take our responsibility seriously in ensuring there is a good fit between client requirements & candidate competencies and motivations. We also provide integration support 90 days after successful placement. In contingent staffing, we are single-minded in delivering service in a way that gives you peace of mind and allows you to focus on your core business.


  • Passion for Excellence: As we cannot be all things to all people, we take a personal and focused approach and ensure we are a “cut above the rest” in the segments and domains we serve. While we are an established organization, our dreams and ambitions remain young and strong.
  • Customer Centricity: Everything starts with the needs of our customers and if need be, we provide borderless service.
  • Professionalism and Integrity: Trust is the bedrock of our business and each day, we endeavour to act in ways that exhibit maturity and honor.
  • Teamwork: We can only serve you well if our own house is in order. We are proud of our engaged and committed team members who are dedicated to meeting the needs of our clients.
