Roundpeg Executive Search

Roundpeg Executive Search supports its clients in identifying and acquiring the best leadership to deliver strategic outcomes and growth.

We have serviced clients across a range of sectors from corporate to family businesses to social impact ventures. Our approach is research-driven and underpinned by our commitment to deliver a leader that drives the creation of value in delivering strategy.

A thorough scan of your environmental landscape is essential to a successful search. The information gleaned is key to being able to assess why one individual would be better than another when on paper they may appear equally meritorious.

Research typically incorporates insights into relevant sectors, top performers, and peer reputations.

The learnings guide us to key individuals and shape the head-hunting approach.
