As a boutique executive search firm, our size and focus mean few off-limits restrictions.

We intentionally limit the number of clients in any one industry; our commitment to you is to identify and present highly qualified candidates, which only can be accomplished by having unimpeded access to the marketplace.

This allows us to search broadly for candidates, resulting in a diverse, robust, and qualified candidate pool for each assignment.
