What we do

Swann supercharges your senior leadership team’s performance. We work with organisations to identify, retain, develop and mentor C-Suite executives and board-level directors.


Our experienced consultants work with you to understand your desired business outcomes and then build a service that meets your needs.  

We take the time to appreciate the challenges your organisation faces, as the solutions to these challenges are rarely as simple as replacing a key executive or hiring additional talent.

We recognise that the challenges your business is facing may be multi-faceted.

With support from our sister companies within the Swann Group, we can provide truly tailored solutions that can make an impact across your organisation.

Whether you need proven talent to complete your executive board, a troubleshooting team to address a specific issue, or experienced interim cover, we can help.

Swann’s success is built on establishing sustained, trusting relationships with our clients.

We’re unafraid to challenge assumptions or suggest alternative ideas, working with you to define a role that will address the business outcome you want to achieve.

Our global network of in-house researchers is capable of coordinating and managing large scale multi-search projects, where synergy between various roles is paramount.

We support you and our candidates before, during and after a placement to ensure success. Our mentoring and coaching services, for example, help individuals, teams and companies achieve their objectives.

And if we believe coaching – rather than firing and replacing – an existing leader is a more effective approach, we will tell you.

Swann provides one-to-one mentoring and coaching to new members of your team, helping them settle in and start in the right way, and to existing senior leaders wishing to raise their game.

Our team dynamics assessment pinpoints why leadership teams do not work well together and why normally capable people appear to be unable to deliver the results you expect. We then coach your leadership team individually and collectively to raise their performance to another level.

This is a strategic approach focussed on and reporting against deliverable results that our coaches will agree with you at the start of the programme.

Clients experience significant, measurable results within three to six months, which compares favourably with the time required for a senior hire.

​And if, at the end of the programme, we simply confirm your original concerns about one individual, the insights generated will put you in a powerful position to ensure a better fit next time, avoiding the enormous damage and costs of a poor hiring decision.
