Our Executive Search program offers a unique approach to identifying and matching professionals with their ideal position and culture. Focused on placing professionals with 8+ years of experience, earning $125k+ in total compensation, our process combines in-depth research, proactive marketing, direct recruiting and a 4-step vetting process that culminates in comprehensive in-person screening. This extensive recruiting strategy produces a well-rounded slate of 4-5 top tier candidates for each search and as a result, 85% of our placements are made from this first batch of prospects.


Complementing our Executive Search program, our TalentAccess™ program is a highly specialized solution, perfect for positions between $65k and $80k. Launched in 2014, this flat-fee, innovative service allows companies to develop a pipeline of pre-screened, relevant and highly skilled talent while lowering their overall recruiting expenses and accelerating their hiring process.

OnBoarding Coaching

Studies show that creating a solid bond with new hires in the first 30-90 days has a direct effect on the longevity of employees. This is especially true with sales and marketing professionals, who focus on the fit with the organizational culture almost immediately. We work with our clients post-placement to provide one on one coaching to the hiring manager and our placement to enhance and strengthen their relationship and trust.
