ADAPT is a privately owned independent executive search and human capital advisory firm based in Melbourne. We were founded in 2015 with a sole purpose to connect our clients with the key executive talent that creates positive change for their organisations.

 

Our approach is simple; we are trusted by our client partners to provide the insight and the executive talent that organisations need to meet their business requirements.

 

We believe the best long-term relationships are built on transparency, trust, time and a genuine care for people we encounter across the Australian business community. ADAPT has developed deep relationships with some of Australia’s leading firms, ranging across Private Equity, Venture Capital, Portfolio Companies, Private Family Office, SME Corporations through to Listed Organisations. We are trusted to represent our client partners for appointments in the C-Suite, MD, EGM and Independent Board positions throughout the Australasian market.

– Adam Gregory, Light Warrior Group; Co-Founder

I have found Adapt to be really refreshing in the executive search arena with their personalised and communicative approach to all projects. They manage the process from start to finish with ease and efficiency and allow the client to continue focusing on the broader business needs whilst in the background facilitating the search process with all stakeholders. Of course the end result has been fantastic with 100% success rate to date in finding the very best candidates for the brief they are provided.

 

– Troy McDonough, MAdE Establishment; Group CEO

Agile executive search firms who’ve maintained a vested interest in the long term career paths of their candidates are strongly placed to respond to clients leadership needs. These core values set up ADAPT for success. Any executive search firm can align candidates to the clients in the right Sector/Category. Few can align their candidates to the right ‘culture’ too…ADAPT demonstrate this time and again.
