The Executives team specialises in partnering our long-term clients within the private equity sector, delivering human capital solutions across a number of disciplines. Between ourselves and the broader Rice Search Partner’s search teams we have 18 years’ worth of relationships across investment banking, capital markets, private equity, asset management and corporate industries. This allows us to access and assess a broad range of senior executive from across multiple sectors and geographies. Ultimately this provides our clients with a richer and more diverse set of options.

We are active at both the executive and non-executive Board level; with most hires being C-suite, Operating Partner or Senior Advisor. We work across all industries, but are particularly known for our work within the financial services, healthcare, consumer and clean-tech sectors.


The Executives team also benefits from our relationship with Adjuvo. Adjuvo is an exclusive investment club for sophisticated financial investors, entrepreneurs and senior business leaders from the worlds of finance, industry and professional services. The club provides our team with this unique point of access to top decision makers in these fields; allowing us to interact with a wider and richer selection of candidates than a search firm without this edge.
