Leadership Teams

Being an organization promoted and guided by alumni of premier institutes and organizations, Synergy has always led through knowledge, technology and management.  It keeps abreast with the latest trends in talent deployment and leadership styles across different sectors of business and industry and is able to add tremendous value to its clients through its collaborative consulting approach.

Synergy believes in discreetness in Executive Search and information about current assignments and clients is kept confidential. We feel that even the talk of hiring, moving or changing leadership of an organization is a strategic information of interest to it’s competitors.

It’s Practice Teams are led by highly experienced Industry professionals who are industry veterans with close contacts at the top. Once the initial dialogue begins, a senior Practice Head / Consultant from Synergy talks to a Client to understand the organization, leadership context, concerns, roles, expectations, deliverables, target groups etc. and to ensure success of the Search assignment.

Further, the Leadership insights are developed through close interaction with Top Teams of IRC Global Search Partners in 40+ countries that constantly exchange ideas, assignments and approaches to  Talent Search.
