About Us

Kingsley Gate Partners is transforming executive search with the introduction of  Synchronous Fit™, Athena™ and Running Start™. By infusing science and technology with human insight, we are solving known executive search industry issues like inherent interview biases and inconsistency in candidate assessment feedback.

We are a global retained executive search firm with one objective in mind – to ensure a lasting fit between our clients and our placed candidates.

In order to achieve this objective, we first apply the science to our client before we apply it on our candidates. We ensure a lasting fit by arming our experienced search consultants around the world with state-of-the-art, cloud based mobile tools. Our frameworks and technology are designed by renowned credible experts in their fields and are regularly updated to maintain cadence with technology developments. Our proprietary Search Management System – Galaxy™ – is a mobile first system with data residing in the cloud.

What is Synchronous Fitä

Synchronous Fit™ is a proprietary Kingsley Gate Partners® framework that results in a perfect fit between client and candidate. It complements the objectivity of an exclusive scientific profiling and assessment process with the deep human insight of expert search consultants. We believe that it is unwise to measure the hand (the candidate) before measuring the glove (the client). The first step of Synchronous Fit™ is the development of the Synchronous Fit Profile™ Agreement.

A Synchronous Fit Profile™ is created prior to the commencement of the search using simple-to-use scientific tools that result in a template that details desired skills, attributes and values in the ideal candidate. A predetermined rating system is established through an iterative discovery process between the search consultant and the client. The Synchronous Fit Profile™ is used to scientifically measure the candidate’s likelihood to succeed in the role.

Using the predetermined rating system, the search consultant fuses expert human insight and scientific assessment with quantitative referencing to arrive at a score for each candidate called the Fit Quotient (FQ). This helps the client in stack ranking the candidates from a holistic point of view as opposed to being swayed by either a strong resume or a dynamic personality. A high FQ results in a lasting successful fit.

Our Firm

Each Kingsley Gate Partners® consultant is an equity stakeholder in the firm, and our clients are serviced by individuals who are owners of the firm who bring an owner-driven mentality and approach to the process. Kingsley Gate Partners® is not a firm that merely searches for your candidate. We are a firm that finds the one that will have a lasting fit with your organization.
