EXECUTIVE SEARCH CHARTER

Retained executive search is a specialized form of management consulting conducted through an exclusive engagement with a client organization. Its prime goal is to assist the client in identifying, recruiting and retaining senior executive talent. Executive search is a critical management tool that, when used correctly, can add significant value to organizations by assisting management teams in achieving their business objectives.

Retained executive search is a sophisticated process which can significantly impact the lives of organizations and individual senior executives. It relies upon mutual trust, confidence, cooperation and professional business practices among the search firm, the client and candidates. To achieve an optimum result, the search process must be understood by all parties.

AESC member firms demonstrate the highest professional standards in retained executive search consulting by strict adherence to the AESC Code of Ethics and Professional Practice Guidelines, and by respecting the AESC Client's Bill of Rights.
