As a firm, Farber is driven to help people and organizations solve their business challenges and optimize their opportunities. As individuals and collectively as a firm, we endeavour to make a quantum difference in the lives of people and organizations that we encounter every day.

Our unique approach to executive search has enabled our business to grow quickly, and we have developed a reputation of providing a high-touch experience, particularly in our candidate community, where we have supported many executives through their transition journeys. Our ethos and values are built around being transparent, transformational, creative, professional and hardworking, delivering quality work on time, supporting and developing our team members, and working collaboratively to ensure we succeed as a team and as a firm. We have a deep sense of purpose behind everything that we do, and we pride ourselves on being a close-knit, diverse team with a unique human-centered approach and culture.
