About Us

Daubenspeck and Associates, Ltd. is an international retained executive search firm. Based in Chicago and founded in 1982, Daubenspeck and Associates, Ltd. is a privately held corporation. As a result of our work over the past three decades, we have become known for combining a global reach with a personal touch.

We are experts in executive search, cross-border appointments and culture match, diversity and culture sensitive selection and assessment, succession planning, and organizational development. Culture is the vital lens through which we view each search assignment. Our cultural expertise and unique search process has benefited our clients in all practice areas, and we have been successfully serving the needs of world-class clientele for over 3 decades.

Our consistent performance has led us to be recognized by Executive Search Review as one of the “Top-40 Search Firms in the Americas” and our corporate leadership was identified by Business Week as being among the “150 Most Influential Headhunters in the World.”

Our consulting experience is comprehensive and our clients consist of the foremost market leaders in a variety of industries. While we are proud of each and every client relationship that we have cultivated, we also pride ourselves on discretion and confidentiality. We do not openly market our past clients as we believe our work speaks for itself.

Daubenspeck and Associates is a member of the Association of Executive Search Consultants (AESC) and the IMD International Search Group, a Top-20 global search partnership.

We do more than simply fill a position; we build organizational capability.
