Our Principal areas of specialization...
Over the last few years ASG has broadened its focus to satisfy client's demands in their growth
Andersen Steinberg maintains relationships with thousands of candidates in the Management Consultancy arena. These include Partners, Directors,
Principals and Senior Managers with years of experience from the Big 4, the Strategy firms and other leading Consultancies/Service Providers. These look
to us as “trusted advisors” on their careers and the state of the Management Consultancy job market and use us to make discreet approaches to employers
of interest. Due to our discretion, we are able to successfully handle even very sensitive transitions, acting as a candidate’s advocate to ensure a
Functional areas in which we look after roles for our clients include: Business Risk, Strategy and Operations, IT Strategy, Transactions Advisory and others.
Industries include Financial Services, Public Sector (including Higher Education and Public Health), Healthcare/Life Sciences, Oil/Gas, Manufacturing and
others. Although we have a very good track record in filling Permanent roles, we have also been very successful in sourcing and placing contractors for
short/medium term project work. Recent examples include providing “hard to find” bid-winning candidates at very short notice for a Big 4 firm in the Middle
Resilience and Technology Risk
Over the last decade, Andersen Steinberg has established a strong capability around Business Continuity (BC) and the wider Risk and Resilience area.
We know the majority of Global Heads of BC in the industry and have helped several to build large Business Continuity teams from scratch.
We also have strong relationships in the related Information Security arena and have handled searches for roles from Chief Information Security Officer
(CISO) down to Consulting Security Architects and IT Auditors.
The turbulence of the last couple of years has spurred many of our clients to develop stronger Risk Management capabilities. We have been particularly
successful in helping Consultancy clients build practices around Enterprise Risk Management, Credit Risk and Operational Risk. We have strong
relationships with the Chief Risk Officers (CRO’s) and Heads of Operational Risk at many of the world’s leading corporations.
Corporate Executive Search
Carrying out a successful search for the right senior person can be a major challenge with a high risk for the client company. We bring to the table excellent
relationships with many of the leading Senior Executives at major corporations worldwide, particularly in the Financial Services industry. We also take time
to fully understand what our clients are looking for and advising them on trends in the marketplace. We are also able to leverage our considerable network
of trusted contacts to get an objective view of a candidate’s reputation. These advantages have allowed us to successfully and discreetly fulfill even very
We have a dedicated team of researchers who have been very successful in searches outside of our specialist areas. They specialize in searching for
“hard to find” candidates which may prove to be a challenge to a traditional search firm. If the search that you are contemplating is outside our core
capabilities, please contact us to discuss how our research team may be able to help you.
We also Provide Contractors...
At Andersen Steinberg we are committed to excellence in our Executive search
process, and we bring that same expertise to our contract search initiative by
providing quality contractors for niche engagements within a limited timeframe...
Since 2001, Andersen Steinberg has been supplying key contractors at a range of clients, including three of the global top ten
banks. Our team has also handled a number of successful short time-frame, high-intensity searches to provide “bid winning”
candidates for several leading consulting firms, including some of the “Big 4”, which has allowed them to win major consulting
deals at various Government departments and one of the world’s leading Universities, as well as other work in the Private
and Public Sector.

Delivering the right results...
Case Study - Strategy Firm Practice Building
A well known Strategy Consulting Firm was planning to aggressively grow its practice in Greater China and came to Andersen
Steinberg for our help in identifying possible ‘rainmaker’ candidates with strong experience in the region. Our team targeted some of
the most successful Partners and Principals in the region and discreetly set up a series of exploratory conversations with our client.
Our client was very happy with the calibre of candidates provided, eventually choosing to hire several of them. We assisted our client
throughout the recruitment and salary negotiation process, leading to both a successful onboarding and an excellent start to our
client’s strategic growth initiative.
Case Study - Global Head of Business Continuity
Andersen Steinberg was recommended to a leading multinational media corporation to help them fill their vacancy for a Global Head
of Business Continuity. Within hours a target list was drawn up and the selection process had started. After several discussions and
interviews with potential candidates to ensure the best fit possible, the client was presented with a shortlist of three of the industry’s
leading Heads of Business Continuity, leaving the client spoilt for choice. After extensive interviews, the client made an offer to one of
the candidates and Andersen Steinberg worked closely with both parties to bring the hire to a successful conclusion. .
Case Study - Against the clock: Finding a “Hard to find” Bid Winning contractor
One of our Big Consulting clients needed to prepare an IT Strategy consulting proposal for a leading multi $bn University in the Middle
East. The bid process was highly competitive bid and included several market leading consultancies. In our discussions with the
client, we identified a key factor that could differentiate their proposal: having a highly experienced University CIO join the team as a
subject matter expert. Finding the right person would be a challenge due to the very short time frame, the travel requirement and the
specific experience that the person would need to bring to the table. Our research team initiated a high intensity search and reached
out to numerous leaders in Higher Education IT globally. Within a couple of days, they had produced a very strong shortlist of
candidates that met all of our client’s requirements and came highly recommended by colleagues in Academia. The candidate proved
to be the key “bid winning” factor, opening up a multi $m consultancy contract for our client.
Case Study - Fast Turn Around
Andersen Steinberg were contacted by a company who knew that Andersen Steinberg were the market leading specialists in the risk
management arean. The Client required an experienced risk Project Leader who could deliver consultancy projects for its clients as
well as develop a consulting team and practice. While in conversation with the Client, an Andersen Steinberg Director mentioned a
Candidate who had recently relocated to the region the Client was based in. The Candidate had years of experience managing a
Business Continuity Practice for a leading Consultancy and was immediately available. The Client was extremely interested, and within
a week two interviews had taken place and the Candidate had been hired. Due to the location of the Client, highly experienced local
candidates were in the minority, but due to the advice given regarding the availability of candidates the Client was delighted to recruit
an excellent candidate within a very short time period from Andersen Steinberg.
A history of effectiveness...
Andersen Steinberg work with many of the world's leading corporations across all
industries. Our major markets are:
• Investment Banking and Financial Services
• Consultancy and Outsourcing
Our current clients include the majority of the Fortune 20 corporations in the US, including the top four financial organisations. In the
UK we work closely with the majority of the FTSE top 10. Many of the leading Financial Services groups and consultancies in Asia
Pacific and the Middle East also look to us when recruiting specialist area staff.
A message from our CEO...
Michael Broughton, Founder and CEO of the Andersen Steinberg Group
Andersen Steinberg was formed in 2001 with the aim of
providing a more tailored, personal service to specialist
areas than the typical established recruitment
consultancies. Our unique approach proved to be very
successful, especially in the niche market that we
initially focused on: Business Continuity and Resilience.
As word spread, we found that we were often the first
choice for Global Consultancies and Financial Service
groups looking to recruit at a senior level. At the same
time, demand for our services grew globally and we
were soon seeing remarkable growth in the US, Middle
Eastern and Asia Pacific markets.
Our clients now look to us to leverage our extensive
contacts and relationships to help them recruit the best
people in a wide variety of fields including: CIO
Advisory, Enterprise Risk Management, Information
Security, Identity Management and, of course, Business
Continuity, Disaster Recovery, Crisis and Emergency
Management. Our clients recognise that we are not a
standard recruitment consultancy, but instead view us
as trusted advisors and friends. We constantly strive to
live up to their expectations so that we can continue to
provide what many have told us is the best service in
the specialist areas we deal with.
