Our mission is to create significant value for our clients by recruiting exceptional leaders who build organizational structures, strategies and teams to drive profitable and sustainable growth. We work in close partnership with a limited group of clients and operate as an extension of their teams. Our search process is agile, rigorous and collaborative. Both our search completion rate and the tenures of our successful candidates far exceed those of the industry’s larger firms.

Our focus is recruiting P&L leaders and marketing executives who have the analytic skills, digital savvy, building mindset and financial acumen to lead in a high-growth environment. We also recruit corporate marketing and communications executives to leading alternative investment firms and high profile private companies.

We work primarily for private equity-backed consumer services and products companies, including lifestyle businesses, education and healthcare services, home services and other multi-unit businesses as well as niche consumer products brands.
