About Us

Headquartered in the Washington metro area, Lochlin Partners is a world-class retained executive search firm that helps leading organizations find the best C-Level and other senior level talent.

Our clients receive the experience, resources and results of large, global search firms in a setting that allows ongoing and intimate involvement to drive every stage of the search process. Our model was designed to deliver quality results by a process that is more detailed, collaborative, transparent and timely than the large firm model allows. We do this because we understand that each executive level position is unique and that a personal, custom approach is the most effective means of finding the best placement for our clients’ needs.

Lochlin Partners is driven by leaders who have each made the same choice our clients have made in choosing a search firm: Small Firm vs. Big Firm.

We believe many of the same attributes that attracted us to Lochlin are also meaningful benefits to our clients: Focus, depth of relationships and quality — to name just a few.
