Find your difference maker
Executive search requests don't always come from the need to fill a position. They also come with a request for consulting on the replacement of an existing role or integration of a new one. Whether the request is to fill, replace, or integrate, typical executive search hires include: CEO, President, General Manager, COO, CFO, CTO, CIO, VP Sales and Marketing, General Counsel, VP Talent / Human Resources, EOS implementor, Controller, and other key positions within the firm. Executive search can also be used to find board members and trusted advisors to guide the executive leadership and team.
