Community-driven executive search, delivering tomorrow's leaders, today

Our Mission

Atara Partners was born out of the desire to move away from the deficiencies surrounding the outdated way executive search is carried out.  Away from the limited database, away from the concept that you can’t be a good headhunter until you’ve been around for 45 years.  Away from promising clients one thing and giving them something else entirely.


How about networking on a global scale with high-level industry executives?  What about building actively engaged C-Level communities and then actually engaging with them?  What about enriching our clients and their leadership teams by helping them gain knowledge, contacts and interacting with other leaders, as well as providing them world-leading talent?


Our community approach is on a mission to transform the executive search industry for the future.  We’re partnering with our clients to build lasting relationships, aid in the development of their leadership teams and deliver truly game-changing executive search.  We are the future of executive search, today.
