Founded in 1999 by Shawn Rutter, Excelsior Professional Search provides excellence in International Executive Search and Recruitment, with specialist focus and expertise in building high performing teams for service and solution providers to the global financial markets.
With a very specific niche expertise on financial technology companies, establishing a strong industry reputation as a trusted business partner that delivers on its promises has been a key objective over the past 10 years, and one that has been achieved.
Through the application of rigorous search processes in combination with expert business knowledge of the financial technology sector, Shawn has grown a team that demonstrates the value and benefits of truly niche focused, high quality and personalised service for both clients and candidates alike. Through the many key appointments made internationally, our team has pride in the knowledge that we’ve a key role in contributing to the success and profitability of market leading financial technology companies, whilst adding value to the individual careers of those we’ve placed.
We appreciate that the demanding nature of business for solution providers within the financial markets means that not only do their company executives require the strong functional skill set and competencies required of their role, but they tend to require a track record of operating in the same financial domain in order to maximise their companys’ market credibility and competitive edge.
In addition we recognise the fact that a large proportion of solution providers are small to medium enterprises operating in a very specific functional niche of the finance sector, but requiring international reach and presence to sell to and service clients in the main financial centres around the world.
Our appreciation of the nature of this niche market and proven ability to source the best available talent is why we excel in search compared to the more generalist search firms in this sector.
