CarterBaldwin Executive Search


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

Although our 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 our 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?
