Ascend Executive Search
Better Teams. Better Lives.
Our philosophy is simple. When you have a better team, you live a better life. To build this team, you must have the ability to identify and pursue top talent. Often times, the most talented candidates aren’t looking. They may even be working for your competitor. At Ascend, we deliver the talented passive candidates that aren’t active on the job market.
It’s the process that makes the difference. Ascend integrates old-school headhunting with leading-edge search tactics, data-mining technologies and advanced performance metrics. Our proprietary database and process allows us to deliver targeted passive talent efficiently and effectively.
Reputation, relationships and integrity are our top priority. Establishing a positive reputation within the Head Hunting industry, developing and nurturing professional relationships with both clients and candidates, and continuously following through with our commitment to excellence are the three critical pieces to our pie. We pride ourselves on delivering our services with the utmost professionalism, honesty, confidentiality and candor.
