Our PeopleWhat it means to be a part of the Waterford Global Inc. team.

Waterford Global Inc. was built specifically to help clients assemble incredible teams. At all levels of an organization, we seek to find both the best people – and the best in people. We perform these services for clients knowing that great talent, assembled in the right way, and given appropriate opportunities can dramatically improve an organization. It is this philosophy that we bring to our own team. Our team members have daily opportunities to make real, measurable impact on service delivery at Waterford Global Inc. and, through that, contribute to the meaningful work done by our clients.

Executive recruitment at this level is both fast-paced and demanding. It is for this reason that we foster a close-knit, team-based environment that feels as close to family as you can get. Our goal is to build a deep understanding of our clients’ organizations – and to also build a deep understanding of our staff. We do this to ensure that our team members have a tailored experience full of professional challenges and personal growth; an experience that holds quality of work and dedication as paramount, alongside personal well-being and career satisfaction.

Our Founding Partners built Waterford Global Inc. to achieve this vision and to continue to build teams that perform at a high level and in a sustainable manner. Waterford Global Inc. was built in response to clients who were looking for this unique capability in their search provider.  Building on this particular search expertise, Waterford Global Inc. has continued to grow with this same philosophy. Over 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 team’s greatest enjoyment comes from 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.”
