Executive Search Atlanta

Locally Owned, Globally Connected

Cornerstone Atlanta is a new organization – but it really is not new at all!

Clients have known founders Larry Shoemaker and Tami Fitzpatrick for many years as the principals of Shoemaker & Associates, a respected, Atlanta based retained search firm that has been serving clients for more than two decades. The emergence of the globally-connected economy has led us to place additional emphasis on our global capabilities with Cornerstone Atlanta.

Larry brings years of experience in the Executive Search Industry, where he has served clients in the industrial, consumer, financial and utility markets. Tami, who has more than 17 years’ experience, is an integral part of delivering the results our clients have come to expect.

Approximately one-half of our clients are manufacturers/marketers/distributors of either consumer or industrial products. We have strong contacts and a track record in many other sectors as well, including financial services, mining, building products and energy.

Assignments have ranged from general management/leadership to high impact individual contributors. Borders are not limiting factors. Many of our clients operate globally; our membership in the 30-nation Cornerstone International Group is a great advantage for them.

We have recently added the capability to assist community colleges recruit senior leaders prepared to address the unique challenges and opportunities facing higher education in the 21st century.

Whether it is recruiting a key position, assessing leaders or coaching high potential individuals, our experience, commitment and expertise help our clients successfully navigate today’s rapidly changing Human Talent requirements.
