Executive Search

Recruiting, Retaining, and Transforming Talent for Exponential Business Growth

Retained Executive Search for All Leadership Levels

Your business success is highly dependent on the quality of your leadership team, but unfortunately, highly talented leaders have never been more difficult to find.

At Strategic Talent Partners, our passion is helping our clients grow their businesses by hiring the very best leadership talent. For that reason, we work exclusively on a retainer basis. We take the time to truly understand your business, your core values/culture, and your goals to apply them to our recruitment efforts.

Whether it’s a CEO, a Vice President or a Manager/Director, our highly experienced team of search professionals will help you hire the very best leader for you – every time.

If you want to see highly qualified leadership candidates who fit your culture, values and goals, give us a call, we’d love to talk with you.

Our Proven Process

Leadership Roles for Your Company

As a private company, you have a personality and culture all your own; the right executive for your company is different than those in public companies, other private companies, or even your closest competitors.

At Strategic Talent Partners, we respect these differences in each and every client we serve. Our process incorporates your unique culture and business model to ensure you are getting the right leader for your future.

Since our founding, we have provided high-end executive search services to private companies–in fact, they are all we serve.
