March 7, 2019 – The executive search industry is being disrupted by the entrance of a multitude of new players offering advanced business models and new technologies. The latest: Morant Executive Search has been launched in Zurich by veteran search consultant Sabine Morant.
Morant Executive Search offers customized search solutions with a focus on identifying individuals with transformational skills. The firm combines the expertise gained from many years of experience in the global executive search and leadership advisory business with various future-oriented concepts to assess the match between candidate and company.
“And because each top talent search is unique, even for the same position, our approach is thematic, cross-divisional and cross-industrial,” Ms. Morant said. “We look at where your company stands in the business cycle so we can determine together carefully and systematically the best approach to find exactly the right person for your needs.”
With a customized approach, Morant Executive Search finds the skilled individuals needed, whether board members, C-suite or other senior management – individuals who can operate across disciplines and are thus ready for the continuously evolving work and business environments.
Ms. Morant brings many years’ experience in banking and executive search across a range of industries. Until the end of 2018 she was a partner at SchulthessZimmermann Executive Search. Previously, she was a consultant at Russell Reynolds Associates for seven years, with responsibilities for national and international mandates. She began her professional career at Credit Suisse. Ms. Morant holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Berne. She also holds a certificate in diversity and inclusion from the Cornell University School of Industrial and Labor Relations.
