About Us

Carmichael Fisher has been delivering strategic search solutions to our clients across Europe and North America since 2008. Our approach has always been people centric dedicated to candidates and clients, our partners. We’ve delivered authentic retained search solutions that solve our client’s talent needs.

Our retained search model combines partnership with accountability, connecting cost with outcomes so that together we reach effective hiring solutions.

In 2019 we invested and transformed. We expanded our North American operation, lead from LA.  We have invested in new technology and a new commercial brand, CF Search, reflecting the modern and inclusive philosophy of our team. We have added further investment into our internal training and mentorship programs, our D&I Council, and our CSR strategy.

CF Search today is a global boutique with respect for our clients and candidates. We know that the long term impact of the searches we deliver change businesses and change lives.

Beyond Executive Search, we also provide Market Analysis Projects, Competitor Intelligence, Talent Benchmarking and Executive Assessment.
