We began with the principle idea that to truly deliver the best service, an in depth knowledge of the marketplace must be key in everything we do.
After a successful career with the leading names in recruitment, Richard Draper founded Rees Draper Wright in 2002. During this time he has successfully delivered partner and director searches to a number of the Big Four, led the executive leadership recruitment programme for a consulting plc and – more recently – helped build Europe’s largest forensic technology practice.
Rees Draper Wright began life as an executive search firm dedicated to the professional services market. We began with the principle idea that to truly deliver the best service, an in depth knowledge of the marketplace must be key in everything we do. This approach has served us well and, 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 have repeated every year from 2012.
Our journey continued in 2014 when we established our office in New York, and more recently our continued success resulted in our opening our Frankfurt office in December 2017.
