We’re an agile executive search boutique with more than 100 years of combined industry and search experience, made up of seasoned consultants and industry insiders. Together, we find C-level leaders throughout Europe for SMEs, major corporates, not-for-profits and the investment community across various health and education sectors.


Carter Schwartz is a truly unique executive search boutique, bringing together the most experienced recruiters and executive-level operators to form a potent and talented advisory team. With Pan-European coverage or country-specific insight, they source inspirational leadership for health businesses and their investors.


Carter Schwartz has a long-standing relationship with the health and social care ecosystem. From a macro perspective, their attention is drawn to the niches of Medical Devices, Medical Products, Life-Sciences, Pharma and MedTech, where companies are less restricted by country boundaries with products/solutions that impact across the entirety of Pan-Europe and the globe. Conversely, their micro view brings into focus country-specific health systems and care services encompassing primary and secondary provision, alongside independently driven care activities in support of the health and wellbeing of the nation’s population.


Carter Schwartz’s core focus is sourcing to MBI/MBO opportunities that require entrepreneurial management teams to deliver country-specific or cross-border buy & builds. They support pre and post-deal and have worked with the vast majority of investors, transacting in the UK and European markets over the past two decades. They are aligned with their business needs, with a pedigree defined by the successful exits of their candidates and investors.


The Carter Schwartz team is comprised of market leading executive search specialists and consultants that have operated at board-level in the health and education sectors. Supported by an experienced research team to provide a robust and thorough process, no other search firm has a comparable understanding of the market, network or track record.


Carter Schwartz provided a quick, effective, professional and successful service. Their level of commerciality and confidentiality was excellent and I wouldn’t think twice regarding using them again.
