Global executive search and leadership consulting

We focus on the chemical value chain, life sciences and food & drink sectors. We have the global reach to find and attract executives to your organisation through a deep understanding of your industry.

We provide sound advice founded on candid, trust-based relationships that are focused on your success. Our seasoned consultants understand the realities of executive life and what it takes to lead.

A personal approach to attracting talent

1,200. That’s how many executives placed by Borderless are contributing to the success of our clients. And while we are proud of these executives and the positions they have attained in their industries, we always ask ourselves what more can we do to boost the lives of the several thousands of people touched by our conversations each year?

We believe that answers will be found when you permit us to take the time to get to know each other, your business and personal aspirations. Diverse perspectives and experiences in our earlier lives as international executives in your sector will certainly ease the exchange, open doors and speed success.
