Stand behind our work with more than words. Be the only retained search firm that backs up its work with a 100% guarantee. None of the world’s top ten firms do this.


Constantly challenge the norm for our clients and ourselves. Give each situation the unique thought and creativity it requires. One size fits one, not all. 


Identify and deliver only the very best tools to help manage talent. Recommend only the most relevant approach. Invent it if it doesn't exist.

Serve, not Sell

Help clients everywhere — and only where — they need help. Go beyond leadership recruitment, to coaching, strategy, on-boarding, retention and more.

obsess over fit

A wrong candidate does more harm than a right one does good. Prevent costly mis-hires: use a number of tools to rigorously determine fit.

be truly unrestricted

Partner with only the highest-integrity, like-minded individuals and organizations. Be genuinely unlimited and unrestricted in search parameters.


Build in social return into how we operate by partnering with the Loran Scholars Foundation to coach and develop the next generation of re-inventors.
