When clients want to hire the right leaders or high-impact talent they rely on our firm’s
expertise as well as our access to talented individuals who may not be actively seeking a new position. We help “hidden candidates” see the potential advantages of making a move for an exciting opportunity. We leverage our industry expertise and proven search process to identify and attract outstanding people who can see beyond today’s challenges and who fit the client’s organization. Our approach is client-focused and can be customized and adapted to individual requirements. Assessments and onboarding are included in our search process, reducing the risk of failure by offering deeper insight into candidates, and by supporting their integration into the organization.
Our experience has been in a variety of industries and functional disciplines. Clients include Fortune 500, mid-cap, start-up and emerging organizations plus privately or family owned businesses. Long-term client relationships have been built on trust, confidence and performance. Our focus is on leadership and high-impact positions.
A proven approach to recruiting
We believe a candidate’s fit and compatibility is paramount to a successful search. Using state-of-the-art tools, our search process focuses on how well the candidate’s style, motivations and brainpower fit the organization and the team. We incorporate this with the candidate’s competency — knowledge, skills, experience, track record and personal attributes. Our clients receive an evaluation of each candidate’s traits, abilities, special talents, and potential, enabling them to make the best possible hiring decision.
Our business is built on relationships. Our clients trust us to understand their organization — its strengths as well as issues. We work with them as partners as we help them identify, attract and develop their leadership team. More than 90% of our revenues are generated from repeat clients.
