Celebrating 10 years of Waterford Global Inc.A salute to our founding partners.

Our Founding Partners built Waterford Global in response to the needs of clients who were looking for a unique capability in their search provider.  Our clients were attracted to a firm whose service platform offered a rarefied combination of a high-touch/high-tech approach to search, and a culture of client and candidate care.  In addition, our clients wanted to experience the benefit of considering local candidates as well as talent beyond our borders.  Our Founding Partners had built this type of search expertise prior to the creation of our firm, and have since grown Waterford Global with this same philosophy.  Ten years later, our first client is still with us.

With more than 45 years of combined experience, the Founding Partners of our firm have remained committed to providing clients with the level and quality of service that consistently delivers success through strategic talent acquisition.  Our greatest enjoyment is in contributing to the mutual success which arises from connecting great talent with meaningful organizations.

“I have worked with Waterford Global for six years. They understand my business, ask the right questions, and develop a thorough search plan that works. They provide us candidates that we simply would not find on our own. They have become a counsel to me on senior executive recruitment and I value their opinion.”
