Greater Cincinnati's largest search firm announces leadership changes

Greater Cincinnati's largest executive search is restructuring its leadership team, with a pair of new managing partners.

Fairfax-based Gilman Partners, which tops the Courier's list of executive search firms, announced Monday principal owner Tom Gilman will relinquish his title as the company's managing partner to Angel Beets and Marci Pfeifer, who will serve as co-managing partners and oversee the firm's daily operations. Gilman will remain the company's CEO, according to a release.

The change took effect Jan. 1.

Beets joined Gilman Partners in spring 2018 as director of communication & education after working with the firm for nearly three years as a contractor. She will continue to lead both marketing and eduction initiatives, as well the company's leadership development program, GP Elevate, as part of her expanded role.

Pfeifer's tenure with the firm, meanwhile, dates to when Gilman purchased then-Baldwin & Associates in 2004. She has served as an executive recruiter and Gilman's chief operating officer, roles she will continue to serve in.

From its inception, Gilman Partners has specialized in executive and professional retained search and has worked with clients including Castellini Companies, Gorilla Glue, Jedson Engineering, Corporex, ArtsWave, Skyline Chili, and Cincinnati Nature Center. The firm has 16 full-time employees.

Gilman ranks as the region's largest executive search firm, with 46 local C-level executive placements in 2019, according to Courier research.
