MWM operates as a true partnership, with partners rewarded equally from a single profit pool rather than on the basis of the ‘commission-based’ model that characterises almost all other executive search firms. This drives effective collaboration and puts client service at the heart of what we do.

We follow a differentiated approach that seeks to deliver consistently better results for our clients:


Client Focus

We make a deliberate choice to work with only a small number of clients in any sector, enabling us to develop long-term trust-based advisory relationships and minimise off-limits


Who you see is who you get

All our partners are focused on the execution of the assignments that they secure; the people clients see are the people who do the work


100% of the Firm

We staff each assignment objectively with the people best placed to deliver a great result for the client; this team draws openly on the collective experience of the whole Firm


Broad global perspective

Our partners bring a deep personal knowledge of the top talent internationally and across sectors


Depth of insight

We have the appetite, intellect and skills to drive real insight on the business challenges and context, thereby sharpening the brief and informing our assessment of the optimal candidates


Creativity and judgement

We actively seek and have a track record of placing candidates who are not yet well known and of spotting and championing ‘rising stars’


Professionalism and integrity

We have a reputation for total discretion and delivering to agreed timings, quietly and efficiently
