We founded Broome Yasar Partnership in 2013 because we felt something critical was missing from the executive search industry.
In our 25+ years of each working in corporate affairs and investor relations, either as practitioners or executive recruiters, market feedback consistently highlighted the lack of any personal service amongst the large generalist search firms with the smaller boutique firms lacking full global reach and focus on the whole market for senior talent.
We wanted to change that and so founded Broome Yasar Partnership, a unique executive search firm centred not just on curating close relationships with all the highest quality professionals in corporate affairs, investor relations and ESG/sustainability, but on working with them continuously over years to improve their capabilities through assessment, skills training, coaching and careers advice.
It has resulted in helping to appoint more than 500 senior level appointments, guaranteeing our clients a constantly high level of quality because the development work we do with the best people in the field gives us insight into their true, underlying capabilities. Meanwhile, our research work, gives us a direct line into the strategic and commercial ebb and flow of the profession as a whole.
And it’s why, from our foundation, we have committed to driving up the standards of the profession through our own daily work – by conducting ground-breaking primary research, publishing leadership papers for industry journals, speaking at events, running bespoke benchmarking projects for multinationals, and being lead members of our core industries’ professional associations.
By building an international partnership of interconnected, boutique, executive search consultancies in key markets – particularly major financial centres in London, Hong Kong and the US – we could keep things at the right scale, with each of us curating personal relationships with the best local senior talent, and still having time to do the day job: getting the best people into the best roles. The reputation for high quality we have built since then speaks for itself.
It also validates our passionate belief that this is, above all else, a relationship business. ‘Partnership’ isn’t just the name on our door – it’s our promise to work as a dedicated and long-term partner with you, either as a client looking for the right senior candidate or as a candidate looking for unrivalled advice, career coaching and, ultimately, your next role. That’s why both founders are still personally involved every day with all of our clients.
It is why our name has become our brand and why it’s the kitemark of quality in the ever evolving corporate affairs, investor relations and sustainability professions.
