Our heritige goes back to our founding in 2002, a group of senior Executive Search and Human Capital consultants began a dialogue over the state of the industry and how they could join forces to offer high value, highly differentiated search and consulting services – locally, internationally and globally. 

Considering all of the other models in the industry, our founders decided on an incremental approach to building a global business and founded Taplow Group. They set out a number of standards and procedures by which we all adhere and abide by – that remains true today as it did on the 1st day of our being.
