Access to More Candidates

Executive search firms have an obligation not to recruit from clients. Firms with large client rosters also have significant off-limits constraints, limiting the candidate pool. Our stringent client selectivity allows us to access more candidates as we have fewer off-limits companies. In turn, you’ll get full access to the finest talent available anywhere.
