ESP History

ESP Global was founded in 1982 as Executive’s Silent Partner by Edward A. Lemire, CPC.

In the beginning, our recruiting efforts were mostly with Northeast based clients, then as the industry changed, our expansion went Coast to Coast.

When the industry went “global” ESP was ready. Countries we have done business with include Thailand, Peru, Korea, England, Canada, Japan, China, India and Zimbabwe.

ESP Global has a well earned reputation for discretion and thus has become known as “the confidantes to call”. Referrals continue to flow to us from our many long-established contacts worldwide.
