Identifying and engaging with high calibre leaders and senior professionals

Gerard Daniels provides clients valuable market intelligence and insights covering the leadership talent landscape. Leveraging our extensive network of industry contacts we are adept at identifying and engaging credible industry sources for bespoke projects.

Our research speaks directly to a specific target population and gather data on levels of interest and Market perception of the company. We manage these engagements with a high level of discretion and in some cases without divulging the identity of the client.

Our clients tell us they value the rigour, structure and planning we bring to executive search.
