About US

At The Lancer Group we guide Private Equity Partners, Boards, and Portfolio executives on critical CEO and C-Level hiring decisions when they can have the most impact – whether after an acquisition, in preparation of a liquidity event, or during a period of significant change. Our clients tell us that we help them “punch above their weight” and place executives they never thought they could attract.

We focus on three very broad and highly transformative industries: Technology, Consumer, and Healthcare. We see an increasing convergence in the three sectors we play in – something we know will be an escalating trend. Today, a multi-site healthcare services business is just as likely to recruit a best-in-class digital marketing expert as is one of our eCommerce clients. While deep sector expertise from a search consultant remains crucial, sometimes you need a search team that brings a cross-industry perspective to a unique, challenging search assignment. Lancer’s distinctive One-Firm P&L model ensures that every search across the firm matters to every partner.
