JM Search

OVERVIEW

Since 1980, JM Search has partnered with private equity firms, venture capital firms, and select corporate clients to recruit transformational leaders.

While we have grown from three college friends to a team of over 50 that recruits for leading companies and investors, our approach to search has remained the same. Our Partners and Principals actively lead each search, throughout every step of the process. We never present a candidate until we have a complete understanding of their capabilities, experience, and motivation, which we obtain through rigorous assessment and due diligence.

Our commitment to these principles, combined with our collective experience, distinct market expertise, and executive networks across industries, enables us to deliver the best possible outcome to every client, on each search.

We make sure that each client receives our complete focus and effort by limiting the number of searches any consultant conducts at a time. Our selectivity guarantees that each search is executed with quality, urgency, and unyielding focus, while assuring that we are free from the extensive “off-limits” restrictions that prevent large search firms from recruiting a substantial number of elite executives. Our ability to bring the best, most qualified candidates to the table for any search, regardless of position, industry or location, is unrivaled.
