Finding and empowering the difference makers—again and again
Anyone can use a search tool to find a resume, but only Durakis
Executive Search has decades of experience and a network of
executives to identify the exceptional.
Discovering and evaluating the best fit for an executive role is as much an art as a science. However, understanding a client’s needs and pairing them with a candidate’s capabilities is only a fraction of the process.
Durakis has proven itself time and time again by spending personal attention on every match, building deep trust with every client, backing everything with years of expertise, and achieving success with our clients and for our clients.

Firm Foundations for Partnership
Four principles guide our work as we partner with clients to find them the best candidates:
The right outcome.
Regardless of your measure, your success is our success — growing revenue from millions to billions of dollars, exponentially increasing market cap, and saving millions—these are just some of the successes our placed executives have had in their new companies.
We pride ourselves in not just finding the best candidates for our clients, but in their successes once hired. Our goal is to not just fill a job opening but provide long-lasting benefit to our clients through the executives we place.
Hear from the clients and candidates that work with us.
The right history.
Our search process has been consistent for almost 50 years, though it is always evolving. Over half of our candidates come from our own cultivated network of professionals.
Starting with Charlie Durakis and continuing with son Chuck, Durakis Executive Search has a family pedigree in finding the perfect candidate. Each search is unique, intricate, and treated as our most important search.
The right focus.
Before they are presented to our clients, every candidate is personally interviewed by Chuck Durakis, the president of Durakis Executive Search. This extra level of attention ensures our clients are only presented with the best candidates and those who fully understand the position and hunger for the challenge.
The right choice.
We create an unprecedented amount of trust with our candidates and clients. Trust breaks down barriers and often reveals what is most important to the candidate and client. Trust is essential to find the perfect fit.
We’re not “most firms”
We’re access to a network. Once most firms place a candidate, they
consider their work done. We never have. We maintain communication with
both the client who hired us and their new executive.
Several executives we’ve helped place have come full circle, hiring Durakis
Executive Search to help build their own new team.
And this network has been invaluable in connecting people together for
business benefits outside of just candidate searching.
Together, we have truly become partners in success.
