Our Differentiation

TMG Search is a top-tier search firm in Korea by global standards.


  • The Founder & CEO of TMG Search carries with him 20+ years of professional career evenly split between top-notch management consulting firms (e.g. Accenture, Bain) and a global executive search firm (Korn Ferry) having serviced Fortune 500 companies as his clients.  He has successfully conducted and completed over 150 searches in the last decade.


  • TMG has been established on the basis of his experience in adherence to global standard processes, procedures and systems.


TMG Search places highest priority on customers and our value to them.


  • TMG Search will work on a search we can deliver. Before undertaking a search lead, we will deploy discretion in light of feasibility. We will also advise our clients as to how to increase feasibility as needed.

  • TMG Search will not work like transactional headhunters. TMG Search will evaluate the right fit of our candidates for each vacated positions based on professional qualities rather than superficial attributes or shallow observations.


TMG Search aims to remain as a prestigious boutique search firm with a singular focus on the executive search offering whose service quality will not fluctuate with arrivals and departures of search consultants.  TMG Search is not after volume but after quality.

TMG Search is connected to a global search platform consisted of premier search partners worldwide.

  • TMG Search is a member of Tiger Search Network (, a professional alliance of retained executive search firms in the world united to provide its multinational clients the highest possible yet consistent quality of recruitment services throughout the regions and countries represented by its partner firms.

  • Tiger Search Network is to compete with the world's leading retained search firms such as Egon Zehnder, Korn Ferry and Russell Reynolds in terms of quality and speed with its utmost commitment to individual client's satisfaction.

  • This was made possible because all the lead consultants of its member firms have previously worked for the world’s largest and premier executive search firms (namely, Korn Ferry and Russell Reynolds) having held the highest ranks (e.g. Senior Client Partner, Managing Director, Office Manager) in the executive search industry with proven track-records and strong reputation in their local markets.  In fact, they are former colleagues from the same companies where they shared the same work protocols and standards, not to mention great teamwork.

  • They have an average work experience of 28+ years out of which 15+ years come from the executive search industry.
