Who are we?

Kilpatrick was founded in 1997 with a distinctive vision and organization aimed at achieving two challenging goals as providing exceptional talented leadership to clients in both emerging and mature markets, and leading its profession through innovative services creating value for our client assuring a unique “search experience™“.
We know your business

In the battle for talent you need to be able to speak to people who know your business or industry, there’s no time to educate search consultants

All of our senior consultants held executive positions or managerial roles before joining Kilpatrick so they understand quickly your concerns and are aware of the (global) challenges of your business. Many times they are already connected to the talent you need!

The people you see are the people you get

The consultants you choose to work with will manage every aspect of your search; they remain accountable for your results, even if the search takes place in another country.
As we’re one company every time you engage us – you gain access to the expertise and market knowledge of all our consultants.

This it is a core value of our firm. Our equal partnership and fixed-fee pricing structure motivate us to all work together on your behalf. The power of this trusted network places the insight and resources of our entire firm at each consultant’s fingertips, making our solutions richer and more responsive, and creating tangible and enduring business impact for our clients.

Kilpatrick  has been a recognized player in International Executive Search for almost 20 years.

Few are globally so well connected. We know where to find the executives you need and how to attract them to your organization. The way we deal with executive search sets us a-part.
