Diversity is Our Heritage… It is Our Focus
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) is intrinsic to our business and because of that, our commitment is a reality—not simply a well-intentioned endeavor. It is the foundation of our client service model and candidate relationship acumen. BroadView Talent Partners is a minority-owned business with a founder who is nationally recognized for his expertise in DEI-related talent acquisition, retention, and leadership development. DEI drives our innovative and winning strategies and creative problem-solving for our clients and candidates.
We Care About Relationships, Not Transactions
After placing executives in key positions, our clients frequently entrust BroadView Talent Partners with onboarding and coaching to ensure those leaders have the requisite tools to perform optimally. In addition, those individuals often become recurring executive search or ongoing career management clients. As a result, we enjoy long-term, trusted professional relationships with the deep satisfaction of helping all participants achieve their Highest Career Goals and Aspirations (HCGA)®.
Clients and candidates always have an experienced partner leading their engagement. We are selective in the assignments we accept to make sure that each participant receives personalized attention and expert insights directly from our partners.
BroadView Talent Partners is small by design, and we “punch above our weight” in acquiring and retaining executive talent for DEI- aligned affordable housing, nonprofit, and middle market organizations as demonstrated by our deep experience, diligence, and extraordinary standard of care.
Retained Executive Search
Our goal is to exceed client expectations. BroadView Talent Partners delivers a diverse pool of top-level executive candidates utilizing our time-tested 10-Step Engagement Process® which has proven to successfully fill senior leadership positions faster and more effectively than the industry standard. We consistently provide verbal and written communications throughout the process that clients have said are a cut above the rest.
On-Boarding & Retention
The onboarding process helps you to develop a happy contributor. Onboarding conveys your organizational brand and values, explains your people and professional culture, aligns institutional expectations and performance and provides the tools for the employee to successfully assimilate into his or her position with a quicker ramp-up to productivity.
Seamlessly transitioning the candidate through the new hire and onboarding experience, then into the performance management process matriculates the new employee and ensures success. BroadView Talent Partners has a track record of integrating both On-Boarding and Retention Solutions via our “Protect Your STARS®” template for both current and prospective clients.
Leadership Succession & Strategic Planning

These solutions further enhance our ability to “get a client and keep a client…”
