Because of our size and select clients, we have access to a much larger-than-average talent pool, placing Wesson & Associates among the highest-ranked executive search firms for placement in less than 100 days.

One Partner

Each aspect of the search is critical and requires experience and knowledge in order for a successful outcome.  Our guarantee is that every Partner who sells the work, delivers the work from start to finish.  Our proprietary 1:1 collaboration® model was built to maximize the Partners focus on execution of the assignment by dedicating 1 Research Associate to 1 Partner, for every search. Research and talent market mapping are of extreme importance and we invest countless hours on every assignment before attacking the market on candidate outreach.  This dedicated collaboration provides our clients with total transparency on the search status and allows the Partner to have complete attention on candidate identification and client accessibility. All RA’s are AIRS certified, which is the industry leader for training research and sourcing professionals and each RA is versed with cutting-edge candidate generation concepts and strategies. Throughout the course of the search, our data and competitive intelligence is shared with our clients.

Proprietary Database

Wesson & Associates utilizes a state-of-the-art custom proprietary database featuring Outlook integration, mobile access, candidate screening/assessment, virtually unlimited storage, automated resume import, full text and smart search ability, and VOIP integration. This system allows us to provide real-time search metrics and progress reports to our customers. Our centralized management system is where our professional network of contacts is organized within their respective company, by industry and vertical. We have created associations to include competitors of prospective clients and co-workers, peers, and confidants of candidates. This has been developed through years of hard work, enthusiastic outreach and diligent follow-up. Each contact is continuously updated with recent accomplishments, award recognition’s and bios/resumes. With this data, we are able to help candidates stay current and marketable with employers of choice.

Our Leadership

Todd Wesson

Todd Wesson, Managing Partner

Mr. Wesson has spent his entire career dedicated to the executive search profession, starting in 1998 with a leading global executive search firm. He advanced from Researcher to Consultant in under 18 months and quickly realized that one of the many flaws working within a large recruitment organization was also its most critical – access to an already limited pool of top level talent.  Wesson & Associates was founded in 1999 as a modern alternative to the bulge bracket search firms.  Our promise to each client is a personalized, tailored and creative approach to every assignment executed by a Partner with specific domain expertise.  We have the resources and advanced technology of larger search firms with the personal touch, energy and responsive of a boutique.

Mr. Wesson maintains a wealth of recruitment process knowledge from having executed hundreds of executive assignments within the Technology and Professional Services industries for Fortune 500, privately held, and equity-backed companies. He earned a bachelor of arts degree in communications from the University of Toledo.

Our Commitment

Through years spent forging deep relationships with our candidates and clients, we are viewed as credible, trusted advisors. We are executive search consultants by training and experience, and realize the importance of longstanding and strong relationships, upholding the highest ethical standards and constantly deepening our domain expertise for our clients.
