More Than Just Headhunters

Of course we still do Executive Search – but we’ve grown. We offer a full range of services to help entrepreneurial organizations hire, retain and manage their people more effectively. Not only can we help you improve your team, we can often save you a considerable amount of your traditional resourcing costs.

Experts at Qualification & Assessment

We specialize in people. Our recruiters come from corporate backgrounds and each has strong knowledge of their industry sector – but our real strength is our understanding of “people.” Each of our recruiters interviews over 1,000 individuals per year. This gives us a unique perspective. We can tell you who’s good, who’s not, and why. And we’re savvy to the intangible soft-skills that aren’t always evident on a resume. Our clients find our objectivity and insight invaluable and we utilize formal assessment tools for additional perspective.

Smart People Make Great Companies

Hiring and nurturing smart people is one of the most effective things you can do to ensure the success of your company. We’ll help you do it better. And because we’re committed career counselors we’ll help you be smart about your career too. We have that genuine passion you find in people who like what they’re doing and who know they’re making a difference. And we’re totally committed to our clients’ success.
