About Us - test
Why in the world did we start an executive search firm? Simple. We saw a need. We had worked in law firms and saw repeatedly how hard of a time law firms had in filling their positions. We saw how job boards didn’t cut it. And we saw many recruitment firms that treated the search as a transaction to get through – not a relationship to build upon. May sound trite but it’s true.
We thrive on getting to know our clients. Their cultures and their strategies. The more jobs we place in one firm, the better we get. So we are truly in it for the long haul.
We've seen the industry through it's evolution, lived it and are totally vested in this industry.
