About ADAPT Executive

About us

ADAPT is a privately held independent executive search and human capital advisory firm based in Melbourne.Founded in 2015, our sole aim is to apply our extensive business expertise and experience in connecting our clients with the key executive talent that is required to create positive change for their organisation(s).

Our Story

We haven’t re-invented the wheel! Our approach is simple, we get to know our clients intimately and develop a level of trust that is unwavering and stands the test of time. We play the long game and believe the best relationships are ones that are built on trust, delivery and sometimes brutal honesty.

Since inception, ADAPT has built a number of very strong working client partnerships across Private Equity, Venture Capital, Portfolio Companies, Family Office, SME as well as a number of leading ASX listed groups.

We are entrusted by our clients to act as an extension of their brand and pride ourselves in operating in a discreet, ethical manner while maintaining a high level of integrity.

We are business people that think like business people and happen just to be sitting on the other side of the fence; and we love what we do!

What our clients say

"The team at ADAPT have worked with us on placing a number of critical senior roles for our business. They have always been extremely thorough in their market search and placement activities and take the extra time needed to understand the role brief and our business in detail.

We’ve been impressed with their engagement and communication as well as their detailed understanding of the property industry and networks. We will continue to work with ADAPT on key roles and would recommend them highly to other companies looking to recruit the right fit for their teams."

- Executive General Manager
ASX Listed Diversified Property Group

"ADAPT has been consistently able to identify exceptional senior people for our portfolio companies, putting forward considered executive shortlists where there is a strong skill and cultural fit that may suit our needs."

– Co-founder & CEO
Leading Venture Capital and Private Equity Group

“The ADAPT team understood our challenging brief with both their heads and hearts. Armed with an exceptional understanding of the market and deep appreciation of cultural fit, the Directors presented a short list of candidates which demonstrated detailed research, consideration and personal conviction; no shortcuts were ever taken.

The level of communication throughout the entire recruitment process was superb, along with thoughtful supporting detail which made the placement process as seamless as possible. Working with ADAPT felt like a genuine partnership, as they offered business insights and intelligence which few recruitment firms can deliver. And we are of course delighted with the final placement!”

- Group Executive
ASX Listed Diversified Funds Management Company

"Agile executive search firms who’ve maintained a vested interest in the long term career paths of their candidates are strongly placed to respond to clients leadership needs. These core values set up ADAPT for success. Any executive search firm can align candidates to the clients in the right sector/category. Few can align their candidates to the right ‘culture’ too, ADAPT demonstrate this time and again".

- Executive General Manager
ASX Listed Industrial Group

"I have worked with many recruiting firms over the years, the ADAPT group set themselves apart from others with their partnership approach to selecting the right people for the right role. They listen to your needs, and challenge you to explore the key attributes you want in the candidate to ensure they put the right people in front of you.

The recruiting process was thorough, the written profiles of the candidates were accurate and made my life easier. The ongoing communication through the interview process was also very helpful.

The service and regular follow up post placement gave me the impression that success for the ADAPT team was more than just placing a candidate, they wanted to ensure both parties expectations were being met and offered advice if it was asked for."

- Executive General Manager
ASX Listed Development Group

"ADAPT had a genuine willingness to understand the broader needs of our business - not only did they have a process that enabled them to understand the respective role, but they went the extra effort to genuinely understand our culture and worked hard to find the type of person that would be a long-term fit".
