Our comprehensive approach and methodology offered to the market.
Cortez Executive Search has over 60 years of collective executive search experience across industries and our employees have experience working within various local and international search companies in South Africa. Cortez continues to map and deliver senior and strategic appointment solutions, based on our ability, experience and approach to the market by sourcing the best talent at the right time.
Cortez was rated as one of the top 10 executive search companies in the country recently by the PMR Award Association.
