Gorman Group is an executive search firm recruiting the next generation of C-level leadership.

We offer unparalleled access to those Brazilians who not only speak English but who also thrive in the pragmatic style of a multinational work culture.

We are particularly known for our long-standing relationships within the High Technology, Venture Capital and Private Equity communities.


We are a multilingual and multicultural team with a unique ability to understand the cultural nuances of the candidates we evaluate.
