About Us

Founded in 1994, 20/20 Foresight began as a real estate-focused executive search firm. We have built a reputation for having unsurpassed expertise in this sector, and today we are the largest real estate executive search firm in the country. Over the years, we replicated our successful process and expanded our search practice to include financial services and professional services. We are honored to be ranked #11 on Forbes 2023 list of “America’s Best Executive Recruiting firms,” marking the seventh consecutive year we have been named to this prestigious list.

As our clients’ needs expanded, we continued to evolve. We built an Organizational Consulting practice to help our clients cultivate and manage their leadership teams. Services include compensation consulting, succession planning, leadership assessments, executive coaching, and board advisory services. But we didn’t stop there. We saw an opportunity to use our expertise to help executive-level professionals throughout their job search process. And 20/20 Foresight Executive Marketing & Job Finding was born. Our unique job finding program has helped hundreds of executives find positions with leading companies and organizations around the country and the world.

Today, 20/20 Foresight Executive Talent Solutions is proud to be a full-service, vertically integrated talent advisory firm. We help organizations retain exceptional leaders, advise them how to manage their human capital through every stage of the employee lifecycle, and work with individual executives to navigate and advance their careers.
