The art within the process of executive search

Finding and evaluating the best fit for an executive role is as much an art as a science. Researching candidates and matching capabilities to client needs is only a small part of the process. There are many tools to help with this, but it’s not about the tools, it’s about how those tools are used by expert, seasoned search professionals. Uncovering the best fit requires building trust, and this only happens by investing an exceptional level of personal attention, with both client and candidate, to maintain meaningful dialogue and develop detailed and accurate insight into the needs of both.
