  • PRACTICE OVERVIEW

    The novel nature of our clients’ technologies combined with a rapidly evolving marketplace requires targeted insight into and longitudinal tracking of organizations and their talent. Searches for these clients often present the dilemma that directly competitive markets consist predominantly of old-line industrial companies where entrepreneurial talent can be difficult to uncover. The recruiting challenge has made us expert in how to weigh the importance of domain knowledge against entrepreneurial accomplishment. Given these complexities, our research driven approach helps our clients find powerful, yet often uncommon, solutions to meet their organizational needs.

    We assist our clients with critical organizational issues related to executive management and structure, helping both early-stage and established companies shape their leadership teams and business strategies. For each assignment, we conduct thorough fundamental market talent mapping based on existing knowledge as well as through primary research.  We prepare balanced and insightful analysis on each qualified candidate and work with both the client and the candidates to ensure a successful placement. We stay connected to both the client and candidate after completing the search assignment to aid in ensuring a smooth on-boarding process and a long and fruitful tenure.
