Based in Sofia, we serve both Bulgarian companies and companies around the world. Our team includes seasoned executive search consultants and our own in-house researchers, all of whom are experienced and knowledgeable about the work that contributes to a successful executive search assignment.

Our mission is to be recognized as an excellent quality service provider to our business partners, ensuring deep understanding of their strategic needs and supporting them in achieving their goals.

How We Work

CEO Search abides by strict confidentiality and transparency policies.  We conduct executive searches on a retainer basis in order to guarantee the quality of our results.

We are diligent about the executive search process, considering organizational dynamics, cultural fit, technical requirements, skills and experiences to ensure the right candidates are identified for our clients.

In addition to executive search, we also offer career management and executive coaching as a separate service in order to build longer-term results among the leaders whom we place. 

We are part of CEO Club Bulgaria, the largest business networking group for active business leaders in Bulgaria, as well as IIC Partners, one of the top global networks of executive search firms.
