The Role
Our consultants lead search, succession planning, and assessment assignments on behalf of clients across all major functions and industries, including Fortune 500 companies, venture capital and private equity-backed businesses, and premier academic institutions and nonprofits. We leverage our industry knowledge and expertise to strategically advise on top-priority, executive-level Human Capital needs.

Specifically, our search strategy combines the significant information we glean from market intelligence and an internal needs assessment to identify client’s strategic goals and challenges. We analyze these findings in partnership with clients to extrapolate the key competencies and skills required for success in the role, and agree upon target candidate pools. We source the global market, assess potential prospects, and interview candidates, gauging relevant experience and qualitative factors. We guide clients through a search process to a successful offer negotiation. Throughout this process, we consistently deliver insightful, impactful, and nuanced counsel to the client.

In addition to executing assignments, as their careers evolve, consultants build and deepen long-term client relationships through the execution of the highest quality work and the pursuit of a range of business development activities. Our senior consultants develop market-validated reputations for their expertise, and are recognized by leading companies within their sector as trusted advisors.
