Our Story

We are a specialised executive search firm, focused exclusively on hiring Transformational Leadership talent for our clients. To succeed in this endeavour, our clients need a specific type of executive - someone who is a change leader. Typically, such a person is entrepreneurial & passionate, thinks out-of-the box, has a vision for where the company needs to go, and , knows how to motivate their team to achieve that goal. Oftentimes, these are people who have lived and worked in different continents and countries. They are people who have worked in start-ups and large companies. They have taken risks and succeeded, and have scars to show for it! We call them ‘Transformational Leaders’.

AnuPartha has worked over 30 years to build a community of people, across geographies, industries, and the gamut of functional roles. Time and again, we have seen magic happen when we find the right transformational executive for our clients. And this is what drives us, and keeps us motivated.
