Special Report on world's top executive recruiters


Sort by recruiting firm, companies headhunters recruit for, sector and job specialties, and other key data points

In selecting the 100 recruiters for our exclusive list of the World's Most Influential Headhunters, BusinessWeek considered a number of factors, including: their individual reputations; their years of headhunting experience; the global scope of their recruiting practices; their accessibility and responsiveness; their high visibility within the client markets they serve; the recognition they enjoy within their firms and/or global executive search communities.

Except where indicated, the information was provided in response to a BusinessWeek survey. There were a very few recruiters who declined to participate that we nevertheless included because of their prominence and importance in the field. The information for them was gleaned from various sources, including company Web sites and other public information. Those designated with an * are the ones who declined to participate.

Please note that this list of the 100 Most Influential Headhunters in the World is an expanded version of our original list, which included only 50 and was published in February, 2008.
