Who We Are

The ancient Arabs discovered and monitored stars in the night sky to guide them towards their destinations, a process called Rasd. Today, we use direct research to identify stellar executive talent that guide organizations in achieving their goals. We are the pioneers and leaders in executive search and leadership consulting in the Middle East and Arabian Gulf since 1989.

We connect innovative and entrepreneurial leadership with visionary companies while providing consultative and strategic support using a methodology that has proven to be successful for decades. As such, we ensure that organizations circumvent the common catastrophic outcomes caused by poorly matched talent and the resulting low retention rates in the market.

Since introducing the concept of retained executive search to the region in 1989, our offering has grown to include succession planning, market mapping, board appointments, and leadership consulting services.

Through our services, our purpose is to enable the prosperity that enriches companies and economies. As a result of our agility, local cultural understanding and expertise, Rasd has built a track record with world-class multinational and leading native companies.

Our work is driven by a commitment to excellence, professional integrity, and thoughtful consideration to the needs of our clients and candidates.
