Technology is the driving force behind Executive Recruitment. Psychographic programs that compare human attributes like values, opinions, interests, lifestyles, and attitudes permeate human resource industry methodology.

Of course, without a lifetime of experience and bone-deep DNA of a seasoned human resource professional, the technology is nothing more than a gnarl of statistics. The Executive Search Consultants at Carn International have that DNA.


Collaboration and friendship of colleagues, knowledge, and collective wisdom of a lifetime spent evaluating humans in multiple different countries afford the Consultants at Carn the right to give their clients high expectations.
Candidly, humans are only somewhat predictable. The coupling of thorough vetting and psychographic data is 99% of the human placement equation. The rest, that rare one percent, can only be determined by a person who is uniquely qualified to make the call. Smart companies hire Carn International for real-world experience that brings candidates over the finish line.

“If you really look closely, most overnight successes took a long time.”

Carn International candidates are selected and recruited into position with precision and the weighty trust of our valued clients. Knowing that we are only as good as our last placement, and that our clients channel their hopes into our search, we are thoughtful and reverent about who we honor with the title of Executive.


Carn International consultants are known for offering bold actions. For example, initial dialogue often centers around replacing the last person that left. A better approach might require an intellectual reset. Instead of taking the logical “Pepsi challenge” company stakeholders may need to “teach the world to sing” like coke. Those generational transitions are rarely visible from within.

Earth-shaking tectonic shifts in a company are not always met with enthusiastic acceptance, but Carn International is not shy about speaking up when critical-path corrections are needed.

Our long-standing clients tell us that those sobering looks at their company structure are Carn International’s secret sauce for demystifying future growth. Often, we choose unvarnished truth over appeasement to stakeholders.

“I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure–It is: Try to please everybody.”
