Our Expertise

Learn more about our experience, areas of specialisation and philosophy

Alex Kaar specialises in assessing and recruiting business leaders with outstanding track records who create a competitive advantage and sustainable commercial value.

 

Our reputation has been built upon exceeding both client and candidate expectations with a specific emphasis on understanding and successfully matching to the cultural nuance of our clients and understanding their leadership requirements at the highest levels.

 

Underpinning our structure is our private ownership. We have chosen to operate our firm independent of any outside interests and are motivated solely by a desire to exceed our clients’ expectations.

The directors, principals and partners at Alex Kaar are mindful that the evolving business cycle means decisions made today will impact on choices and opportunities in the future. As a consequence, we endeavour to ensure that the appropriate decisions are made for sustainable growth and success, personal achievement and career satisfaction.

 

We acknowledge that there is a three dimensional relationship between client, candidate and search firm and as time evolves the candidate becomes the client and the client becomes the candidate.  Our philosophy suggests that there is no differentiation between the two, as a sustainable relationship with both is essential in order to facilitate a successful appointment. We believe that only an intimate and personal partnership is effective in a ‘people’ based industry.

Alex Kaar is a boutique executive search and talent development firm which sets the benchmark for excellence in both client and candidate service. Our value proposition is our ability to identify, engage and appoint world class business leaders who will create a competitive advantage and sustainable commercial value.

Alex Kaar’s Partners and Principals bring a wealth of experience to their work and their reputations have been built upon consistently exceeding client and candidate expectations. With a genuine passion for building long-term relationships and partnerships with exceptional individuals, our success is the result of investing in the ongoing success of the people we represent.

We have had the privilege of working with Australia’s most successful business leaders and enterprises, from ASX top 50 corporates and global brands, to government, high profile private organisations, SMEs and startups. This broad exposure has provided us with the ability to provide remarkable insights regarding the principles of success in differing environments.
