Our Commitment to a Long-Term Partnership
The trusted relationships we build with your senior executive team give us an understanding of your unique business, and the internal dynamics of your organizational culture and corporate philosophy. This knowledge provides the sensitivity we need to identify and evaluate executives with exactly the right mix of personal and professional skills that you require.
Every client and each assignment is unique so will not use an existing database of people to identify candidates for you. Instead, our consultants will create a custom-designed search strategy and database that addresses your specific requirements and expectations.
We guarantee to provide your first slate of candidates within 30 days. Most firms will not.
Why should you hire us instead of a firm that "specializes" in your industry?
We carefully limit our client base in each industry we serve. This enables us to recruit from your direct competitors while honoring our relationships with current clients and conducting a thorough search for the best candidates.
Our consultants has extensive experience with specific industries, functions and geographic markets. They collaborate on every assignment, working as a team to develop the most effective solutions to our clients' needs. This multi-industry collaboration is a hallmark of our firm and distinguishes us among other firms.
Do we keep a database?
Since every search is unique, we don't rely on a pool of existing candidates or a generic database of current candidates. Instead, we employ our seven-step Strategic Search Process to identify and locate the best candidates for each assignment. For each search, we create a real-time database that's uniquely customized to your needs and specifications. This database includes only the most up-to-date, current information on potential candidates who match your detailed and specific search requirements.
Why don't we list our clients on our website?
A great deal of our work is highly sensitive or confidential. Therefore, we do not publish the names of the companies we represent. Our clients value our discretion.
