What We Do

CBK Partners is an innovative strategic talent advisory firm. We focus on blue chip clients and provide them bespoke advisory, as well as deep competitive intelligence on the relevant talent market and business landscape.

Our practice focuses on high profile searches in the corporate finance ecosystem with strategic relevance to the market. We are considered generalists and provide our advisory and search expertise across all industries. We leverage deep relationships with business leaders, independent board members, innovators, decision makers, and sector experts.

We operate on referral and repeat business. We earn clients through deep partnership and trust built over decades. We maintain one of the highest retention rates in the industry. Our results are evidenced by the direct impact we have on clients’ extraordinary growth and shareholder value.

What We Believe

We believe in taking the long view. We engage with business leaders and high performing talent to provide them insights and tactics to lead inspirationally, rather than traditionally.

We are driven by excellence.

We don’t consider ourselves a classic search firm and don’t benchmark our success within the industry. We know great talent advisory means partnering with our clients to drive their businesses’ growth and achieve their goals.
