Consequently, we finely target our audience when recruiting. A real advantage for our executive level searches as your position is instantly exposed to this vast audience.

Our clients requested executive search services. They wanted a higher-level search option for mid-tier, senior and difficult to fill positions, as there was no affordable solution in the market. We can offer these multi-level search and pricing options because of our strong candidate database, advertising, and dedicated team of researchers.

By design, we developed our searches to source candidates in the most challenging and difficult to fill areas. Our methodologies are our strength. With our processes, we build an accurate candidate profile; reach consensus among the search committee and leadership; conduct in-depth candidate research, recruit candidates, and conduct candidate interviews and assessments on both the soft and hard skills required for success. When we deliver candidates, you’re assured they are the right fit for the institution, leadership and committee members.

Our database and researchers give us immediate access to more candidates than any other search firm.
