We are a purpose and mission-driven executive search firm

Our firm is grounded in honesty, transparency and integrity and we partner with companies that share those same values. We represent our clients as if we are part of their team, bringing a high level of accountability and a commitment to excellence. We recognize that the placements we deliver impact the success of our clients and the lives of the people we place, so we persevere to find the best fit for the position and the culture.

We draw our energy, creativity, and inspiration from working with exceptional people who challenge themselves and those around them, whether it’s a client, a candidate or one another.


We Are Proud To Be A Certified B Corporation

For almost 15 years, we have helped find exceptional leaders for companies who promote active, healthy, and sustainable lifestyles.

We donate 1% of revenue annually to education and conservation causes. We also volunteer individually and as a team to support our community. Here are some non-profits that we support:

Nature Bridge, Open School, Meals on Wheels, Northwest Harvest, Big City Mountaineers, Oregon Food Bank, The Conservation Alliance, Period, Outdoor Foundations and Camber Outdoors.

We work with incredible organizations and individuals who are passionate about being their best self, doing good in the world and encouraging others to do the same.

Don’t just take it from us

Sara Spirko and the Noto Group team exhibit exceptional professionalism while remaining down-to-earth, flexible, and approachable. Having previously engaged with other search firms and left with disappointment, my high expectations were met with thorough and values-aligned answers to every question I raised (and I came in hot). Their extensive network, prompt responsiveness, and clear understanding of our needs played a pivotal role in securing our top candidate and hitting our desired timeline. We are more than satisfied with our experience and eagerly await future collaborations.
