Why Us?

business leadership and teamworkCesab is an international recruiting firm that has been providing high quality search and selection services since 1985. In the US, Cesab specializes in engineering and management recruiting services for the technology industry. Our core competency is helping our clients identify and attract key talent for critical positions within their organizations. These are typically subject matter experts, talented innovators and developers, as well as positions with significant strategic influence and a high degree of impact on the business. We recognize that the most qualified person for a job is probably not actively looking for new opportunities. Thus our recruiting process takes a thorough and proactive approach. We don’t wait for the candidates to come to us. By utilizing our extensive professional network, deep industry knowledge, and strong emphasis on research, we are able to provide our clients with targeted quality candidates. This saves time and resources for the hiring manager as well as everyone involved in the interview and evaluation process.

When you engage Cesab in a search, you have a dedicated partner on your side that works with your organization’s best interests in mind.


Cesab was founded in 1985 by Christer Liljenstrand as a high quality executive search firm in Northern Sweden called Cesab Executive Search AB. The company’s large and diverse customer base, including companies and organizations in both the private and public sectors, allowed Cesab Executive Search AB to quickly grow into one of Sweden’s premier search and selection firms. In 2000, a US office was established as Cesab International, Inc. to focus on the information technology industry as well as leverage the strong synergies that exist between the hi-tech economies of North America and Scandinavia. Today we serve our clients from offices in Sweden and Southern California offering search, selection and leadership development services.
