CIO Partners is 100% focused in technology leadership searches across all industries and corporate sizes, from startups to Fortune 100 organizations. Founded by a former CIO, we are uniquely positioned to provide access to exceptional, aligned technology leaders for our client partners.
It’s well known that hiring organizations experience the most difficulty in hiring for their technology roles. These positions require a different approach. While some other firms may excel in placing CEOs, CFOs, and COOs, we specialize in and understand the uniqueness of the top technology roles. As result, CIO Partners has established strong national brand recognition among senior technology leaders and has been recognized by Forbes as one of America’s Best Executive Recruiting Firms.
Since our founding in 2001, our cornerstone belief has been that building deeper relationships with clients and truly understanding their technology, vision, and culture results in a more effective recruiting process. This unique, value-based approach became the foundation of the company’s industry-leading CIO RightHireSM process, used to match the top 5% of technology professionals with the right organizations.
Through our CxO Professional NetworksSM, we have built and developed global networks of CIOs and CTOs. These active memberships are comprised of 2,000+ technology leaders in industry-based, domain-based and regional networking groups. It is because of these cultivated talent communities that we are typically able to present our candidate slate within 3 weeks of engagement and complete a search in 8-12 weeks (not months), with an average of 6-8 candidates submitted.
