Savannah, formerly the UK office of a global search firm, has launched to combine the “personal, bespoke experience of a boutique agency with the global reach of a larger search firm”.
With the view that the executive search sector needs to adapt and capitalise on the digital age, Savannah will focus on empowering business leadership teams and offering a better client and candidate experience.
John Ellis, Managing Partner, commented: “We asked our clients the simple question, is there a better way of doing things? And resoundingly they said yes. Client expectations have matured, and we’re in a position where we can respond and adapt to this changing working dynamic between businesses and executive search and interim firms. We’re offering a bespoke service, not trying to force a one size fits all solution on businesses that increasingly value a more modern, flexible way of working.”
The firm has found that in the last couple of years, there has been a fundamental shift in how businesses want to engage executive and interim search firms; increasingly companies want these firms to support and enhance their in-house capabilities by involving them with specific parts of the search process.
Savannah believes it is well placed to deliver the tailored experience organisations are seeking, without clients having to compromise on quality or global reach.
Ellis continued: “Digitisation is forcing businesses in all industries and sectors to re-think their products and services and prioritise the customer experience. The executive search and interim industry has the opportunity to harness the power and potential of this to deliver an exceptional end-to-end experience. Our understanding of our clients and their markets combined with our team’s expertise and investment in technology is enabling us to deliver a unique, premium proposition at a time when companies are looking to work differently with their executive search and interim partners.”
