Searches are not a one-size-fits-all approach. Different positions require different talent, and it’s the level of talent you need that will dictate your recruiting options. Here is some information about our services that can help you determine the option that’s right for you.

Our Services

Retained Search

A search for top-level executives is best suited for a retained search agreement. As your exclusive retained executive search firm, we serve as a trusted strategic partner, helping you build a superior leadership team through identifying core leadership competencies, needs prioritization, continuity planning, and more.

Engaged Search

This type of search is most typical with manager and director-level positions. In engaged recruiting, a percentage of the fee is paid when the search starts, but the rest is only paid if our candidate is placed. If you want the middle ground between retained and contingency, an engaged search is the route to go.

Contingent Search

A contingent search is most commonly used for mid to senior-level to individual contributor roles. When working with an employer on a contingency basis, we are paid only after the recruiter finds a candidate that the client hires. The fee is typically paid on the first day of employment. The fees are based on the candidates' first-year target compensation.

“Matt did a great job. As you are quite aware, as a business leader I have a lot of options with regards to my recruiting needs. Over my 32 years of leading business, I probably have used a dozen or more recruiting firms for different roles. Most of them were out of state groups that specialized in what I was looking for at the time or are specialized in our industry. I like that you guys are local and seem to have a well balanced portfolio, and a personal yet down to earth staff which is much appreciated. Matt was a pleasure to work with. He was appropriately aggressive with our search and presented outstanding candidates that fit our needs. I will definitely use Matt again for our next search.”
