WORK WITH US

OVERVIEW OF EXECUTIVE SEARCH

Our executive search team includes former CEOs, search firm entrepreneurs, and past industry executives–each with decades of experience working with, working for, or leading the impeccable executives you seek. We understand the impact of every role because we’ve been there.

When you work with us on an executive search, we schedule an on-site visit at your office in order to gain a thorough understanding of your organization and your culture. Finding a good culture fit is an essential piece of the puzzle when bringing on a new executive. From the first phone call to the final behavioral assessment, we don’t farm anything out. Instead, our executive search specialists are with you from start to finish.

PERFORMANCE-BASED BILLING

Most search firms break billing up into thirds. Ours is done in fourths. Based on performance, our fees are not expected, they’re earned. We bill our clients when we’ve hit big milestones, so you know that our priorities are aligned with yours.

SUPPLEMENTAL
QUESTIONNAIRE

Our proprietary process includes having all of our candidates in retained engagements complete a Supplemental Questionnaire. Everything that’s not in a candidate’s resume that you want to know:

  • Compensation History
  • Non-Compete
  • Education
  • Direct and Indirect Reports
  • Functional Areas of Responsibility
  • Relocation Requirements
  • Reasons for Leaving Past Employers
  • References

Most importantly, we have every candidate prepare a writing sample that highlights why they think they’re a fit for the opportunity. It allows our candidates to explain, in their own words, why they think they’re a fit. It allows our clients to get a snapshot into how they communicate and generates countless topics to explore during an interview. Our current clients tell us that the Supplemental Questionnaire and writing sample is as important as the resume in evaluating early stage candidates.
