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
Nick Workman, Justine Gallen and Tim Connolly have over 50 years’ advisory, consulting and executive search experience. They 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. Their collaborative culture ensures they work seamlessly as one.
Clients are retained executive search and leadership consulting firms across the US, Europe and Asia. Candidates are retained executive search and leadership assessment and development professionals in client-facing, fee-generating positions. ALC continues to build entrenched long-term partner relationships with clients and candidates based on deep content knowledge and exceptional delivery.
“Our combined experience of operating in these sectors makes us the most experienced consultancy globally dedicated to them. We love what we do, we are good at it, and we always give our very best.”Nick Workman, Managing Partner
“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
We target world-class talent by producing in-depth competitor intelligence reports (CIRs) for our clients, followed by a confidential executive search, with all our assignments being led by our Partners. This ensures there is no dilution in intellectual property, and, coupled with the in-depth CIRs we produce – which analyse our clients’ competition and their key performers, organisational structure and compensation models – means we are able to continually advise clients to enable them to make critical decisions during the executive search. Our rigorous processes and deep roots in our sector are instrumental in helping clients attract and integrate individuals from competitor firms in new and diverse markets, or merge with or acquire other companies that we identify for them. Our executive search service has been the foundation of our success to date.
As the quality of your people has a dramatic impact on company performance, it is very important when you hire someone that you know all you can about them. Our assessment tool, based on valuemetric science, examines why, not how, people behave in a certain way, providing unique information about someone’s subconscious automatic thinking and decision-making preferences, at a level not subject to change with emotion, therefore bringing value beyond most psychometric tests in the market. We offer assessment on all our candidates, and our Chartered Psychologist (Level A and B qualified in psychometric assessments and certified in valuemetric assessments) delivers feedback directly to our clients, providing additional insights specific to the role and the candidate’s capability to do the job they are hired for.
“As a client of ALC’s the standards are very high. They have tremendous insights and their follow through is incredible. They know when to intervene, when to add value and when to let the client and candidate build their relationship. They set a very high bar for search consultants.”CEO & President, Gatti & Associates
“ALC stand out as real professionals in a highly competitive sector. They are quick and efficient, they understand their markets and are unfailingly enthusiastic and diligent in their approach.”Client Partner, Euromedica
