Keys to “Connection Sourcing” – Our Specialty:

Our recruiters have all had successful careers in the financial services or management consulting industries and bring an invaluable depth and breadth of experience and insight into their work. We find specific industry experience is a competitive advantage for both screening and sourcing candidates. At Right Executive Search, we use our experience, connections, network, and the trust we have earned throughout our careers to provide access to talented professionals you would not have had the opportunity to meet.

Candidate referrals from our personal and professional network are an important source for Tier 1 candidates. All of our team members nurture and continually expand their professional networks stemming from their own corporate careers that include tenures at Bear Stearns, Credit Suisse, Deloitte, Deutsche Bank, Morgan Stanley, Precision Capital Advisors, Quellos (Blackrock) and Salomon Brothers. Our college and university alumni networks include Cornell University, Duke University, Franklin & Marshall, College of the Holly Cross, New York University, Rutgers University and University of Maryland and more. “Connection Sourcing”, utilizing our network to benefit our clients is an integral part of everything we do.

The value we place on relationships
Our success has been predicated on professionalism, honesty and integrity.
Placing the right person in the right position is important to us. More than that, it is personal to us! The reputation we have built comes from our results, our long-term relationships with clients and candidates, and an unwavering ethical standard.

Our commitment to understanding your organization
We devote time and effort to understanding our client’s corporate culture, departmental “personality” and the technical and experience requirements for each position. We are great listeners and understand the needs of each position as part of our client’s employee retention strategy. With each candidate submission, we include a summary of the candidate’s skills and experience specifically related to the job requirements. We understand how valuable our client’s time is and want to make the process as efficient as possible.

6-Month replacement guarantee
We feel extremely confident in our process, people, and the selectivity with which we present candidates. On average, most recruitment firms guarantee their hires for 2-3 months. We offer a 6-month replacement guarantee, double the industry standard, as a testament to our mission in placing “the right candidate in the right position…right from the start.”
