Although networking, data mining and highly advanced Internet search procedures are part of our process, these methods only supplement our pro-active, direct recruiting activities. The overwhelming majority of the candidates we’ve placed were “not looking” when we first contacted them.

We provide an entire “turnkey” service, including:

  • Needs analysis
  • Written position profile/job description
  • Identification of desired candidate attributes
  • Compensation parameters
  • Search strategy and execution
  • Reference/background checking

Our relationships are continuously strengthened through:

Communication.

From start to finish, we maintain close contact with you at all times. As partners, regular communication is critical as we execute each phase of the search process.

Objectivity.

Viewing your organization from an outside perspective allows us to objectively offer counsel that may not be readily apparent internally. Our knowledge of “best practices” across multiple industries allows us to advise clients about improving procedures, standards, culture and more.

Being objective, we are adept at recognizing problems with the search criteria early on in the process, and in most cases in our initial discussions about the assignment. Once we do identify that one or more of your criteria may be unrealistic and/or is not aligned with the market, we will work with you to determine where changes need to be made or specifications adjusted.

Resources.

Our management and research teams all have solid academic credentials in addition to decades of combined work experience in the industries we serve and in the science of executive search. Our years of experience have enabled us to build an extensive contact/referral network and database.

Creativity.

Our search strategies and execution are always unique and innovative. We don’t only rely on the most likely sources to surface candidates. Our approach often takes us into alternative industries/companies to find the ideal candidate.

Hiring the right person is a very critical decision. We care about the well-being of those we work with and all of our relationships are bred for the long-term.

We Know our Clients.

We get to know all of our clients intimately and visit with each new client at our own expense. We take the time to learn about all of the unique dynamics that go into making good hiring decisions to ensure the candidate’s overall fit with the organization. Our clients value our many years of search experience and industry-specific knowledge. They also appreciate that we sincerely care about their well-being, and function as an extension of their executive staff. This quality and commitment of our work goes hand in hand with our uncompromised integrity and discretion.
