Hiring an employee requires a significant investment both in time and money.  Ensuring a potential employee aligns with your company’s culture and business is often limited to traditional recruiting tools.  In order to improve hiring decisions and to maximize your company’s financial performance better methods are required. Business success is highly dependent on having the right people, in the right position; at the right time.

Prevent Startup Excitement from Translating to Frustration

Startup excitement may translate to frustration.  A startup has so many balls in the air; often they get enamored with the offer from over eager recruiters telling them they how they can help. The startup needs and wants to move fast so the answer is generally yes, resulting in lots of resumes and interviews.  Too often unqualified talent is delivered and the startup incurs lose of precious cycles that should be devoted to growing the business.

What is the main reason you use executive search services?



Business success is highly dependent on having the right people, in the right position, at the right time.  An open position can cause many detrimental situations; from impaired customer relations, operational inefficiencies, to revenue losses.  Staffing an open position requires significant thought and effort to ensure the right match for your company’s culture and business. 

A profitable business stems from employees and a well built management team.

We believe top candidates:

  • Ensure customer satisfaction as a top priority
  • Put aside personal agendas to ensure the interests of the company
  • Know how to motivate and achieve the best work from company resources
  • Continually learn and improve their leadership and specialized skill sets
  • Adhere to high levels of trust and integrity
  • Respect others at all levels of the organization
  • Understand quality and efficiency of action


World Class Talent


Candidates are plentiful due to adverse economic condition and talent seems available.  However, finding a future employee or officer for your company has become more difficult.  Electronic search engines and resumes referred by friends and colleagues provide endless choices.  Finding a candidate suited for your business based on your exact needs and requirements cannot be ferreted easily.  Having top candidates that are qualified, pre-screened, and chosen without bias will expedite business decisions.   

Our candidates are selected from multiple sources and evaluated using specialized tools.  We understand how to deliver talent that exhibit proven performance, preferred leadership traits and execute natural workplace behavior.
