We know clients want to identify experienced, “world class” CIOs and CTOs to redefine and modernize the technology strategy and help drive the business strategy.  Our team conducts more than 200 searches annually for senior information and technology officers, and while our Practice’s strength is working at the top of an organization, we also build exceptional technology leadership teams. 

Operating as an integrated global practice, we adopt a best-team approach that leverages the right mix of expertise for our client’s information and technology needs, as well as the local and international business requirements.
