About Us

Artico delivers the people to build, scale and protect your business. Founded in 2021, Artico’s team matches the world’s best talent with venture capital, private equity-backed and publicly-traded companies.

With decades of experience and a serious network of elite candidates, our relationships help us calibrate quickly, enabling perspectives on potential candidates that other firms often overlook.

Our position in the market as a boutique firm means every search outcome matters to us, to our brand and to our clients. We anticipate your needs, communicate transparently, and deliver what we promise, on time and exceeding expectations.

Our expertise and commitment to providing a diverse set of candidates — one that spans ethnicity, gender and background — helps our clients build a more inclusive and innovative leadership team. We publish our diversity numbers transparently and they are best in the industry. Our past two years have proven this out with 53% of our placements being under represented talent.

We have almost unlimited access to the broadest and best talent without the conflicts of multiple “off-limits” agreements that restrict the larger firms’ access to the best talent.

Every Artico consultant has deep domain knowledge, relevant search experience and significant operational expertise. We know the market, and anticipate where it’s going. Our methods have been decades in the making and provide for crisp execution.

Our methods combine art and science. We scientifically analyze leader profiles and competency trade-offs while artfully engaging people who add to the culture, lift the brand and fulfill both company and personal goals in their role.
