NorthWind Partners is a global, strategic retained search advisory firm. The prime concentration of our work is with business & professional services, systems, solutions, and product companies spanning the aviation, aerospace and defense, healthcare, industrial, and technology sectors. We also have deep experience and relationships in the government contracting arena.
With over half a century of experience, we serve as trusted consultants evaluating, recruiting and coaching top tier executives. Our markets have realized and continue to undergo tremendous changes in the new global environment that has emerged in the 21st century and since 9/11, particularly in Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America. Our commitment is to build top leadership teams for select clients around the world.
The Partners at NorthWind are committed to directly conducting all searches while the majority of executive search firms rely predominantly on databases, less-experienced research/recruiting associates, or the Internet to perform the bulk of the project and deliver final candidates. Drastically outpacing the industry average, our success rate on engaged assignments is approximately 96% with 99% of executives placed maintaining a minimum tenure of 1 year.
Our team has successfully completed hundreds of assignments for clients and has had the opportunity to learn from the successes and failures of hundreds of companies. We gladly share the benefits of this experience with our clients and candidates.
