Headquartered in Sydney with an office in Melbourne, the firm has a distinguished track record of successfully completing global and regional search mandates at the C-suite level.

He plays a pivotal role in the firm, utilising his extensive global networks, instinctive people skills and passion for the business to generate and execute search mandates - as well as providing invaluable input and support to all work undertaken by the firm.

Since 2002, de JAGER Executive Search has been the Australian affiliate of IIC Partners, the 8th largest executive search group in the world - with offices in over 60 countries.
