Principal Connections is committed to supporting Executive Search Corktechnology-driven innovation for clients across industries, and is well-established in cultivating the world class expertise about functional technology that has remained central to this commitment.

Through our decades-long work and relationships, it has become increasingly clear that our clients desire a more ‘connected’ level of support as they think through the board, executive talent and organizational implications of once separate domains now brought together by technology. To best advise our clients as they address challenges like aligning existing systems with direct customer platforms and applications, or as they begin leveraging next generation technologies - from AI to Block Chain - we formally integrated our digital transformation and data analytics practices into our Technology Officers Practice.
