Our Process


Listen: We meet with each client and listen attentively so we can understand the organization’s culture, the specific need, and parameters of the search.

Plan: Every search is unique. We conduct extensive research to create a custom engagement strategy to identify the talent pool that not only can perform the required responsibilities at the highest level but is an ideal culture fit as well.

Execute: We treat each engagement as a high-priority retained search. This includes extensive interviews of prospective candidates, providing the client with a comprehensive assessment report, creating a “short list” of the highest potential candidates, and offering benchmarking analysis to assist in offer negotiations.

Build: When the search is completed, the work is far from over. We build strong relationships with our candidates in order to have honest communication regarding the transition with the new organization and discussing any potential concerns they may face early in their tenure.
