Find a Recruiter

While executives at a well-regarded outplacement consulting firm
during the summer of 1996, John Salveson and Sally Stetson spotted
an industry weakness. They noticed that while many executive
search firms did a fine job of recruiting candidates, few took more
than a passing glance at corporate culture – the very personalities,
procedures and idiosyncrasies that make each organization unique.

With a firm belief that it takes more than just a good resume to succeed
as an executive, the two outplaced themselves, and founded Salveson
Stetson Group, Inc. (SSG).

SSG brings an entirely new approach to retained executive search,
focusing on corporate culture and assimilation as well as candidates’
qualifications. Each assignment has a clear goal: to strengthen the
client’s company for the long term by helping it attract, select, develop
and retain high-quality members of senior management.
