About Us

Search Done Better™

CarterBaldwin is a retained executive search firm that partners with our clients to build exceptional leadership teams. For more than two decades, we have played a pivotal role in transforming the leadership and landscape for clients, impacting the future of their organizations for years to come.

Since our inception in 2001 as a corporate firm, we have expanded our client portfolio to include nonprofit and academic sectors, serving both domestic and international clients from our headquarters in Atlanta, GA and our Washington, D.C. office. Despite our growth, we remain intentional about our “small” size, choosing to focus on delivering great search outcomes with the right balance of partner involvement, recruitment, and research support.

With more than 125 years of combined executive search experience, our partners lead a highly engineered search process that is collaborative, efficient, and effective with consistent success. Our in-depth approach enables us to deeply understand each client’s needs and creates a seamless partnership for every search project.

We pride ourselves on our highly experienced staff, an unrivaled process, and an exceptional client and candidate experience. As a result, many of our engagements are with repeat clients, referrals, or candidates significantly impacted by our work.

To see why many of the best and most admired organizations continue to trust CarterBaldwin with their most critical leadership needs, connect with us.

At CarterBaldwin, its team is comprised of experienced, focused search professionals who share a passion for being better. They give them a better environment, better support and a better opportunity.

Search done right is hard work, requiring hustle, inquisitiveness and a “never rest” mentality. People content with “good” don’t like it here.

They expect a lot from their team because clients expect a lot from them. In return, the firm works hard to make CarterBaldwin a better place to work. They have a fun, collaborative, team-oriented yet heavily performance-driven culture. This yields better outcomes for clients and candidates.
