about riverstone

Riverstone’s purpose is to deliver leadership that gets results.

Riverstone was founded after identifying a gap in the Australian and New Zealand market for high-quality, non-conflicted, tailored search and leadership advisory assignments.

We have over 25 years of experience in Australia and the United Kingdom with both global and boutique firms conducting executive search and leadership consulting across a range of sectors.
