About Us

August Leadership was born from a belief that executive search could be better. Putting clients and candidates first. Focusing on relationships not transactions.

Some of us have spent a lifetime in search. Others joined after holding leading roles in start-ups or large corporations. Several of us are named as the most influential search executives in the world.

We share ambition with our clients, candidates and partners. Our clients range from global multinationals to mid-size fast-growth organizations to pioneering start-ups. Whatever the company, whatever the challenge, we work in partnership to help them succeed. Many of our client relationships span decades.

Diversity is at our core. We come from many countries, backgrounds, and life journeys. We understand how to bring diversity to an organization. We’ve done it for our own firm and we know how to do it for yours. We always present a diverse slate.
