After a successful career with the leading names in recruitment, Richard Draper founded Rees Draper Wright in 2002.

The company began life as a boutique executive search specialist dedicated to the professional services market.

Over the last decade, we’ve grown into one of the most reputable names in the sector, with a large portfolio of high-profile clients and a truly international remit.

We were admitted to the Association of Executive Recruiters in 2007 and by 2011 had established ourselves in the Executive Grapevine’s official top ten search consultants – a feat we repeated in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

Through the acquisition of a number of specialists, we have expanded our range of services to include research mapping, competitor intelligence, benchmarking and organisational design and assessment.
