Ms Saraswathi Venkateswaran
President and CEO

Ms Saraswathi Venkateswaran is one of the pioneers in introducing the concept of ‘Head Hunting’ in India. In 1989, she was instrumental in forming a new company called The Head Hunters India Pvt Ltd, one of the best known companies in carrying out executive search in India and abroad.

Ms Saraswathi stepped down from the board of The Head Hunters India Pvt Ltd in 2004 to start her new venture with a major focus on providing senior executives for top positions like CEO and board level appointments.

After completing her M.A. in English, and a working stint at Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, she joined Sterling Holidays and worked as General Manager Marketing Services for three years before starting The Head Hunters India Pvt Ltd.

Ms Saraswathi has placed over 900 CEOs across sectors, throughout the world. Her passion is to be matchmaker between individual and corporation and finding the perfect fit gives her the greatest joy. She builds a personal rapport with corporates who retain her for their executive search assignments.

Ms Saraswathi holds Board positions in:

  • PDS Multinational (Independent Director)
  • Aventus Partners
  • CEO Search India Pvt. Ltd.
