A firm that works for the sheer love of finding talent,and nothing else.

We are an independent executive search firm based in Mumbai, founded in August 2002.


Driven deeply by best practices of retained search, our services are best suited for positions requiring 10 years of experience and above. We focus only on areas (both industries and functions) which we think we understand well. And deliberately engage with fewer companies in a particular sector so that our clients have access to a wide range and quality of potential candidates. Quite a few of our clients have been using our services since our inception.


Our competency based assessment ensures only carefully evaluated, serious, interested candidates are presented to clients. Allied to that, our extensive experience in successfully positioning products and services amongst consumers’ minds helps us sharply pitch search assignments, is a rare capability only our clients are able to leverage.


If you want a firm that will partner with you with focus, creativity, personalised attention and a deep desire to help you meet your business goals, then you may want to engage with us. You will find our working style is collaborative, approach uncomplicated and philosophy one that ensures that our success is directly linked to your success.
