Testimonials from India - Clients & Candidates
Our clients in India
Satish Godase, International Business Board Director
We contacted the international executive recruitment firm CEO Worldwide as we were looking to recruit our new CEO to accelerate our next phase of growth in India. In terms of experience I have found CEO Worldwide has:
- high professionalism, effectiveness, transparency and flexibility in their process,
- understanding of the required skills for the position,
- data base of quality candidates, they ultimately presented required resume in a very short time (less than 10 days!)
From the initial briefing call to the placement of our CEO, CEO Worldwide spent the necessary time to our satisfaction!
Highly impressed with all aspects of the recruitment process, I strongly recommend CEO Worldwide for any executive recruitment needs in India.
Basant Sandooja, Managing Director
After considering a local firm to help us recruit our plant operations head, we decided to revert to CEO Worldwide and its wide international coverage. We have been impressed with the quality of the Indian candidates’ short list they have been able to quickly provide that meet our specifications. Within some weeks of interviewing process, we were able to find the ideal candidate from that list. With strong experience, network, reactivity and flexibility, CEO Worldwide managed the process until we closed the candidate of our choice. We highly recommend CEO Worldwide as a partner you can entrust to exceed expectations.
Shivraj Patel, Director & Board Member
From the first conference with the CEO Worldwide team, the transparency and enthusiasm shown by them to help us find a CEO was enough for us to conclude that they were the right partners for us. We are a niche small scale industry due to which our requirements were very specific. The tremendous detail to specification that the CEO Worldwide team got into led them to giving us 4 top candidates which made it very difficult for us to single out a candidate, which is always a good thing. We again thank CEO Worldwide for the quick responses and their transparent approach.
Peter Branston, Managing Director
When we contacted CEO Worldwide, we needed to find urgently the new MD for our India operation (600 staff and 2 manufacturing plants), the former MD having taken retirement.
The searched for criteria were:
- Managing director with significant experience in India and abroad, in the industrial equipments sector serving the manufacturing, construction or transportation sectors with more than 600 employees and multiple plants to manage
- University degree, possibly MBA
- Strong turnaround experience (kick-starting sales growth, implementation of modern manufacturing methodologies and increasing collaboration with the rest of the group)
- Bilingual Hindi-English
We have been looking to recruit our new MD for some considerable time without success. Therefore when CEO Worldwide presented to us its short list of candidates in less than 7 days, we have been really impressed to find amongst the selection of 5 profiles, the very strong match.
We appreciated the quality of the professional follow up and coordination service done by CEO Worldwide during the interviews and negociation process. CEO Worldwide enabled us to gain a lot of time and close the recruitment in a very short time frame despite the fact that 5 countries, with their respective time zone and travelling limitation due to Visa issue, were involved in the recruitment process (India, Oman, UK, USA and France).
CEO Worldwide played also an important intermediary role during the negatiation of the candidate contract conditions, enabled us to finalize the contract signature in a short time frame.
We recommand strongly CEO Worldwide executive recruitment service for companies which are looking to hire an executive in a short time frame and within an international context.
Naresh Patel, Chairman
We hired CEO Worldwide to find our CEOs both for our corporate business and Trust. Over the course of a few weeks they managed to identify and present exceptional shortlist of candidates out of which we recruited the outstanding ones that fit perfectly what we were looking for. There is no way we could have done that on our own.
CEO Worldwide provides continuous follow up of the process, nice and friendly attention, all of that with serious commitment, flexibility, sense of urgency, efficiency and professionalism. It is a pleasure to partner with them and we highly recommend their services for any critical C-Level executives hires.
Ravi Nangia, Managing Director & Founder
Finding a CEO for our fast growing family business was a big challenge. We're the largest manufacturer of Phenyl Ethyl Alcohol (PEA) in India and the 2nd largest manufacturer in the world. So finding a candidate who possesses the combination of skills and experience necessary to lead an organization of this type and propel it to higher levels was no small challenge. Both the board and I were impressed with CEO Worldwide and how they helped us to find and recruit the right CEO. The highly experienced and accomplished pool of candidates they proposed to us in a short space of time was critical to our successful outcome.

Prashanth N Hegde, CEO of Shri Khodaldham Trust-Kagvad
CEO Worldwide contacted me with a unique and challenging CEO opportunity in India. The assignment was different from anything that I had done before, yet it fit my skill set and passion. The international consultant, at CEO Worldwide, with whom I interacted is knowledgeable and did a thoughtful and thorough gathering of information about the role and organization.
The consultant was available to talk through any concerns I had and was prompt in checking with the client on my inquiries. He exhibited lots of commitment and discipline in following up with me at every stage of the selection process and he proved a perfect facilitator balancing both candidate and client’s interests.
I believe, that CEO worldwide is unique, as they support and follow up even after reporting for duty. I have no hesitation in recommending CEO worldwide to employers and candidates seeking help in the recruitment of CXO level.
