Who We Are

National Executive Search Is All We Do

Our goal is to do executive search better than anyone else in the field. With more than 35 years of experience, we’ve learned how people and companies fit together. We’ve also learned that no two companies, candidates or industries are the same.

We Deliver

Knowing that every search is unique, we’ve perfected our process to make your next executive hire a long-term win for both you and the candidate. In fact, over the past decade, 96% of our recommended hires are still in their executive chairs a full year later.

We Succeed Only When You Succeed

Unlike many other search firms, we work on a performance-pay model, with your final payment due only after you’ve made your desired hire. We won’t lose interest if your search takes longer than expected. We’re so confident in our process that we back every hire with a full one-year guarantee – four times the national average! If at any time during their first year, you or they decide you’re not a match, we’ll conduct a whole new search with a whole new guarantee.

How We Do What We Do

We Are Internally Structured for Your Success

­When you hire us, you’ll work with the same dedicated senior team member from start to finish. No junior people on your account – ever! We don’t bog our people down with endless internal meetings, bureaucracy and office politics. Instead, everyone is free to serve you in a manner that works for both of you. This freedom enables us to easily respond to the twists and turns that stymy larger more bureaucratic search firms.
