Why We’re Different

Bigger is not better

Bigger simply is not better when it comes to the executive search industry. Because of our boutique size, repeat clients and industry focus within Technology and Professional Services, we are able to approach our networks at almost every sized competitor to surface the best possible talent. Since our beginning, we have had a greater than 98% success rate in completing each assignment we were retained to fill, while the industry average remains 65%.

Partner ownership of identifying candidates

Searches are won or lost during research and recruitment. Far too many companies delegate candidate sourcing to an inexperienced staff. These junior staffers come across as uninformed novices when calling prospects, and are quickly dismissed by potentially serious candidates. They have little concept of the nuances of the target position to be filled, and lack the skills for converting a disinterested source into a potentially viable candidate.

Unlimited Slate of Talent

Having a select client base allows us to approach high-caliber executives from a wider universe of direct and indirect employers. This diverse slate allows our clients a full spectrum of talent to assess, greater confidence in finalizing the search and results in a much quicker time to complete the assignment.

Non-solicitation policy

We offer a company-wide non-solicitation policy vs. one that is only practice-wide. We view anything less as an unethical tactic commonly used by larger search firms to recruit away talent from its existing clients and keep a steady stream of incoming business.

Client-centric approach

Our client-centric approach focuses on personalized, detailed attention. Each Partner handles no more than 12-15 searches per year. This minimizes the inability to reach candidates due to conflicts with another client and maximizes effectiveness – resulting in the highest search completion ratio among the industry leaders.
