Why Savannah?

Access The Best Without Restriction

As a business, we run around 200 searches a year, in comparison to the major global search firms who handle more than 10,000 a year. Our positioning bridges the gap between smaller boutiques who don’t have the same level of experience, expertise and resources, and the big global search firms who are unable to approach certain organisations and individuals due to their extensive off-limits restrictions. We are practiced at identifying and approaching the top 10% of global transformational leadership.

The service they provide is second to none. They have taken time to understand our brand, mission, values and our requirements and they have always worked at pace to deliver.

Carol Muldoon, VP of Partner Resources, EMEA

We have worked together on a number of executive level roles. They focused on a global search in all of these cases and significantly improved the bench strength of these leadership teams by finding us world-class leaders to join our organisation.”

Ollie Roberts, VP People

Lisa always delivers and has a fantastic grasp of the marketplace. Thoughtful and considered in her approach, a unique way of building relationships, and always thinking outside of the box with any placement. I understand why Lisa has such a wide global network of contacts and is respected by those that meet her.

Why Savannah?

Proven Transformational Leadership

Today’s volatile and ambiguous working environment requires more than a CV and a round of interviews to truly understand how an individual is likely to respond to the demands of leadership positions in transformation contexts.

Our experience from working with over a thousand businesses on short-term and long-term transformation projects has enabled us to create a six part assessment model that allows us to assess leadership in a transformation context. This model helps you understand a candidate’s preferred approach to work and how this may align with the demands of leadership roles in a transformation environment.
