About This Author

I have been on the front lines as an executive recruiter for over 25 years having placed many hundreds of candidates worldwide. So believe me when I say there is no magical formula for recruiting. All recruiting firms are more or less the same.

What separates us is the extra effort we put into each and every search for you leaving no stone unturned to meet your needs.

Additionally, we have developed a time-proven, 3-step recruiting process. Please go to for more details.

Furthermore, we specialize in six niche recruiting areas at the staff, managerial, director and vice president levels, as well as for Chief Technology and Chief Information Officers:

•Scientific
•Engineering
•IT
•Technical
•Manufacturing
•R&D

Retained vs. Contingency Search? Here are some very good reasons to do a retained search with our firm:

1.Rest assured, when you hire us you will feel extremely confident that we will quickly, efficiently and thoroughly meet your needs. Our COMPLETION RATE IS 87.5% on ALL retained searches!

2.We include FULL BACKGROUND INVESTIGATIONS, including drug screening, on EVERY candidate you interview from our retained searches. Please go to for details.

3.ALL reference checks are PERSONALLY conducted by EACH AND EVERY consultant and NOT outsourced. Our experience has shown when we take the extra time to ask, re-ask and then re-state key questions, we uncover a lot more useful candidate information! This is very important because it leads to a lot of hidden candidate information that would not normally surface.

4.We offer a 6-MONTH REPLACEMENT GUARANTEE on all retained searches. This means if anything goes wrong, we will replace the hired candidate with no additional investment.
