Underwood Executive was founded by Nicole Underwood in August 2011. A burning desire to do things differently and better, Underwood Executive was born out of the vision of working with like-minded people who are driven to succeed through finding and developing the highest performing executive talent in the market.
As our brand has evolved and developed over the past 10 years, we are clear and consistent in being authentic, relationship focused, bold and progressive. We care about who we work with, the type of clients we attract, the decisions we make and the behaviours that we demonstrate.
Underwood Executive is now an award-wining executive search and talent management consultancy. The firm has established an enviable reputation for building long standing and highly trustworthy relationships, with strong expertise to identify, entice, place, and develop executive talent. We have an extensive understanding of both the South Australian and national market, business community and sectors, covering the state government, local government and private sectors.
In 2019, Underwood Executive became the first and only South Australian owned executive search firm to be accredited with AESC membership. AESC is a global organisation that has set the quality standard for the executive search and leadership consulting profession. The organisation and its members share a deep commitment to the highest quality standards for the benefit of clients and the profession. This membership is exclusive, with only a small percentage of firms that apply to the AESC meeting the rigorous requirements of AESC membership. AESC members are expert advisors at the top of their profession, adhering to the AESC Code of Professional Practice.
Our vision remains consistent as we take pride in our ability to build professional, ongoing and effective relationships with our highly valued clients. We value this business partnership approach where we have an absolute commitment to taking talent further.
