"ESTABLISHED IN 2001 AS AN EXECUTIVE SEARCH FIRM, WE BECAME A PARTNERSHIP IN 2010 WHEN WE REBRANDED AS ALC TO ALSO OFFER ADVISORY, LEADERSHIP AND CONSULTING SERVICES"

ADVISORY

icon_advisory
We provide unbiased, practical and confidential advice to Boards, CEOs and key global decision-makers, with all our assignments being led by our Partners. This ensures there is no dilution in intellectual property, and, coupled with the in-depth competitive intelligence reports we produce—which analyse our client’s competition and their key performers, organisational structure and compensation models—means we are able to advise clients to enable them to make critical decisions before we undertake an executive search on their behalf.

LEADERSHIP

The quality of a leadership team has a dramatic impact on company performance. We partner with clients to define the capabilities required for critical leadership roles in their company and provide accurate competitor analysis through our competitive intelligence reports, enabling our clients to make informed decisions on how to attract and integrate the right leaders for their business, before we undertake an executive search on their behalf.

CONSULTING

Our clients continually rely on a broad mix of ALC’s consulting services as they seek to outwit the unpredictable and volatile economic environment. We offer consulting to our clients in order to help them understand their company’s culture and, importantly, their reputation in the market and how we can help them attract and integrate individuals from competitor firms in new and diverse markets, and merge with or acquire other companies that we identify for them.

“ALC are very responsive and their research is very comprehensive. They made us feel satisfied that we were systematically considering all relevant candidates. ALC partnered with us throughout every phase to ensure a successful closure.” Global Practice Head, Egon Zehnder

“WE OFFER A RIGOROUS, TRANSPARENT AND ROBUST SERVICE ALONGSIDE UNWAVERING FOCUS AND RELENTLESS EFFORT"

Nick Workman, Justine Gallen, Emily Hammond and Tim Connolly have nearly 50 years’ Advisory, Consulting and Executive Search experience. We founded ALC to deliver high-level competitor intelligence to clients to enable them to better understand, identify, merge with, and acquire industry leaders and competitor companies.
Clients are Retained Executive Search and Leadership Consulting firms. Candidates are Retained Executive Search or Leadership Assessment and Development professionals in client facing, fee generating roles.
