With over 21 years of experience in executive search, Bill Haggerty specialises in recruiting Senior Executives across the Manufacturing, Engineering, Transport & Infrastructure and Energy sectors. Typical roles include CEOs, CFOs, Logistic & Supply Chain Directors, Project Directors and General Managers. He is an active member of Engineers Australia and is committed to promoting the engineering profession and gender diversity within engineering.

He has a very broad commercial background with extensive management, business development and project management experience gained in Australia, the Middle East and Asia.

Throughout Bill’s professional life one of his key strengths is his ability to work and communicate with people at all levels in an organisation. As a result of a diverse career, he has developed extensive high level business relationships, which demands trust, integrity and credibility in the eyes of internal and external stakeholders. An essential element of a successful executive search practice is personal network and Bill’s has grown and prospered – from his earlier employment with the Australian Wheat Board through to the present time, and this is especially relevant to his senior level executive contacts in the private and public sectors.


“From the initial connection, Bill Haggerty and the TRANSEARCH team were clear, professional and role alignment was spot on. Communication was frequent and the framework around next steps and recruitment timeline, seamless. Certainly a point of difference which was both refreshing and professional. Post placement Bill has checked in on myself to ensure the entry into the organisation is as described and all is well, another amazing attribute from a first class recruitment partner. Based on my experience and journey thus far I would absolutely recommend Bill and the TRANSEARCH team for any executive role or organisation seeking C-suite and executive-level talent. Well done and thank you team.”
