ABOUT

We work with companies that need an experienced, dedicated, and thoughtful talent partner.

We have a knack for rising to the occasion in a variety of complex recruiting situations.

We have built entire companies from the ground-up; we have staffed multiple cross-functional teams simultaneously; we have recruited the inaugural employees for new offices in new geographies; and we have replaced the unexpected loss of critical talent. 

Our clients choose us to solve these important challenges because they trust us with their most vital asset: their people.

GLOBAL REACH

Norgay Partners has partnered with Carpenter Farraday, a leading London-based boutique executive search firm that specializes in alternative investments, asset and wealth management, and investment banking.

In establishing this partnership, we unite our industry expertise and complementary approaches to recruiting, allowing us to work holistically across function, level, and now geography to positively impact our clients’ culture and bottom line. Norgay and Carpenter Farraday take a functional approach to recruiting. We help our clients recruit across multiple levels, from senior leadership and mid-level professionals to junior team members. We believe that this approach enables us to become experts in our clients’ cultures and to better identify candidates who will bring complementary skill sets and personalities to existing teams, which ultimately results in better long-term hires.

Both firms’ highly personalized and relationship-driven approach will bring significant benefits to our clients as they grow geographically. We can now ensure that our clients have access to the deepest and broadest search execution capability in both the North American and European markets, regardless of level or function.

OUR APPROACH

YOUR LONG-TERM SUCCESS IS OUR LONG-TERM GOAL.

FOR CLIENTS

Every client is valued at Norgay. Whether it is a small start-up portfolio company or a global investment firm, we take the time to fully understand our clients' unique needs, aspirations and growth plans. We believe every candidate hired will impact our client's bottom-line and culture, and we bring this sense of importance to every search. Unlike most search firms, we dedicate our entire team to every mandate we take on, and bring a relentless focus to engaging the candidates that our clients need to execute their vision. Long-term partnerships are what matter to us. Like Tenzing Norgay, we work with our partners not only to get them to the top of their "peak" as a company, but also to help them navigate their growth plans every step of the way.
