Requirements & Strategy


Generate & Engage Talent


Qualify Pool & Select Finalists


Offer Acceptance & Start

We start with a highly-detailed requirement gathering process, which often includes visiting your headquarters and connecting with multiple stakeholders to get the best sense of the ethos of your organization. We help to define the key qualities and competencies of the people who will help you meet your business goals and clearly articulate these needs in a branded position overview that authentically represents the opportunity, your company and culture to potential candidates.

We often cultivate a deep network of contacts, creating a pool of interest in your role that allows us to be highly selective. We use a multi-faceted assessment process designed to analyze multiple data points to hone in on a candidate’s functional and cultural fit. Our screening process utilizes competency-based interviewing, realistic job previews/projects, leadership assessments and other tools to gain a well-rounded perspective of each candidate.

Leveraging our internal resources and team, our recruiters take your search from start to successful completion, getting to know each candidate personally to assess their fit for your organization.


We are a mission-driven search firm that successfully places candidates across Director, Senior Director, VP, President, and C-Level Roles
