About Us

CarterBaldwin Executive Search is a leading international retained executive search firm. Focused on being the best vs. the biggest, they out-research, out-recruit and out-hustle our large competitors.

Although its clients are a diverse set of some of the largest and most admired businesses, universities and non-profit institutions around the globe, they are united by a common characteristic … they have moved away from large, encumbered, old school search firms … opting instead for CarterBaldwin’s more reliable and performance driven search model.

Large enough to bring significant resources, muscle and international reach but small enough to build intimate, long term client partnerships, CarterBaldwin is a bright, fresh, high energy alternative in an industry cluttered with dated, impersonal search models. The world is changing … shouldn’t executive search change with it?

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.
