Company Overview

Connecting Great Companies with Outstanding Talent
CDS offers both executive search and contingency recruiting solutions to predominantly foreign capital clients in Japan and across Asia. We are the bilingual, executive search arm of Recruit, Japan’s largest recruiting group.

CDS was founded in Japan in 1998 and is headquartered in Tokyo. Our operations include a branch office in Osaka and strong partnership network in the Asia Pacific region. In December 2007, CDS was acquired by Recruit, Japan's largest recruiting group. Through this new partnership, CDS and Recruit are positioned to better serve their respective clients and candidates across Asia.

CDS offers retained executive search for board level, country manager, and senior executives, contingency recruitment for middle to senior level management, and start-up consulting services. Our diversity in experience and professional achievement allows us to understand the hiring needs of our clients across industries and functions.

Setting New Standards in Executive Search and Recruiting Services
CDS adds value at every stage of the search process by listening to our clients' needs, working with them to achieve a balanced and effective search strategy, and then delivering this message with proper impact to the talent marketplace.

Each of CDS’s practice teams maintain a solid and sustained understanding of our clients’ businesses, the markets in which they compete, as well as the chemistry required to succeed within their organizations. This understanding and market knowledge helps us identify and attract the best talent capable of making immediate and lasting contributions.

Each new search project presents an opportunity for CDS to raise the bar even higher as we consistently aim for greater standards of client services.
