Havik is the "boutique" of Executive Search that stands out, at first, for the way to face our own business: we strive to “see” the processes and projects through the eyes of those who seek our services.

We understand that the ability to bear fruits is the greatest attribute that professionals can lend to organizations, and the greatest differential in the consolidation of their careers.

From these concepts came the inspiration to turn a word into our brand. Havik comes from the animal that lends us the name: The Goshawk, noble bird, of the order of the falcons. Unique, fast and accurate - just some of the qualities we seek to share with our customers. In the medieval era, they were one of the man´s companions, and legend has it that he who hunts with a goshawk can see through their eyes.


A world where people and organizations can fly higher and higher!


Share the same vision of our clients and candidates, incorporating it into the way we think, plan and act, delivering real, tangible and sustainable results for all parties.

We understand that each individual is unique, as is every organization;

We strive to "see" the processes and projects through the eyes of those how seek us;

We believe that the right attitude of genuine interest in people and the business can make a real difference;

Our goal is to promote the connection between people and organizations.

Executive Search

Through our unique methodology that brings together a specialized view by market segment to the main dimensions of influence - Governance, Strategy, Leadership and Culture - we contribute effectively to the organizations in our Executive Search processes.


Recommended in Executive Search processes, Succession Plans and Market Mapping, it is a process that aims to measure the technical, behavioral and cultural adherence of a professional to a specific function in an organization.

Board & CEO Services

In an increasingly complex and competitive environment, where the speed of change puts current models in check, it is critical that organizations compose a highly-skilled board. Our role is to evaluate, hire and mentor board members and CEO's.


Through an exclusive methodology, we apply the Onboarding program to the leadership projects we conduct, whose main objective is to assist in the insertion, adaptation and generation of results of the newly hired professional.
