Origins

We are noted among both clients and candidates for sound judgement and counsel, business insight and understanding, confidentiality, unrivalled specialist knowledge, and consistently excellent outcomes.

Founded in 1982 by Annita Bennett and Airdre Taylor, we have always striven to provide the highest quality of executive search in our specialist field. We remain committed to their vision of a company based on integrity, respect and partnership; one which adds value and makes a difference to our candidates and clients.

Over the last three decades the company has filled more than 1,400 roles in PR and communications. Dr Heather McGregor, the company’s majority shareholder and managing director, joined Taylor Bennett in 2000 and bought the company in 2004.

Heyman Associates was founded by William C. Heyman in New York in 1989. With more than two decades of disciplined work in communications search across industries and geographies, it has earned the trust of both clients and candidates. This trust, in turn, has given it the chance to become a thought leader in the industry, to build on its strong reputation and, most of all, to continue to do great work.
Based in Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia, the firm, a joint venture of Taylor Bennett and Heyman Associates, was launched in 2013 to work with international clients needing assistance with Asia Pacific and Australasia-based roles and candidates based in the region looking globally at their next career move.
