At PSD our mission is to attract and secure exceptional talent that impacts positively upon our clients’ business. Over several decades we have built an outstanding reputation for delivering impressive results at senior management and board level.

PSD’s Board Practice is led by highly experienced search consultants. Many of the practice members have served on PLC boards and/or held senior management positions in the UK and internationally. Their combined experience supports and enhances our advice to clients on leadership hiring strategies. Our Board Practice consultants are subject matter experts in their chosen fields and have extensive contact networks and well-developed relationships across their specialist markets.

PSD’s approach to executive search combines the agility and individuality of a specialist boutique with the process, expertise and international reach of a global search firm. Our approach is open and collaborative and recommendations are made only after careful consideration and in-depth analysis of the fast changing and complex needs or our clients. Sector and functional experts work collaboratively to ensure that the search process extends beyond the obvious sectors and into related and complementary areas where exceptional talent may also be found. Our recommendations and advice for each search project are underpinned by the latest market intelligence, highly effective research and rigorous project management.

First class … At all stages I felt fully up to speed with all activity, which is vitally important in this type of relationship. Genuine, honest and helpful feedback was given at every request and I could find no fault with the experience and would have no hesitation recommending in future.
