Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky
Cincinnati Executive Search
Gilman Partners is headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, and serves the region as an executive talent search and professional recruiting firm. We’ve successfully placed thousands of leaders in and around the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky region.
Because our team members and their families live in the Greater Cincinnati area, we understand how to attract talent to and within this market. We’re committed to strengthening leadership teams of the organizations that call Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky home, and our employees are active in many local organizations and causes that help elevate the talent in our community.
Gilman Partners’ Cincinnati executive search team has placed leaders in some of the most iconic Cincinnati institutions like United Dairy Farmers, Skyline Chili, Castellini Company, FC Cincinnati, TQL, Greater Cincinnati Foundation, and Gorilla Glue—but we also work with many lesser-known companies that play a significant role in their industries and to the success of our region.
Our Cincinnati Services
Executive & Professional Search
Gilman Partners specializes in searches for leaders in the top third of the organizational chart across a variety of industries. That specialty – and the fact that we successfully place more than 100 leaders across the nation each year – means our executive search consultants deeply understand the nuances of attracting, assessing, and recruiting executives and other high-caliber professionals.
Outsourced Professional Recruiting
Whether you need to hire ten or 50 professionals each year, our experienced search consultants will take the most time-consuming parts of the recruiting function off your plate so you can focus on running your business.
Executive Leadership Development
More than just a management course, GP Elevate is a highly collaborative, six-month program with a curriculum that blends core business competencies and critical soft skills all while introducing participants to a high-caliber peer group.
Outsource your executive recruiting.
With a focus on building long-term relationships, Gilman Partners are authentic and genuine with each of our clients and candidates. And it works. More than 75% of our searches each year come from repeat clients. Although we recruit nationwide, Cincinnati still serves as our headquarters, and we have deep relationships throughout the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky region.
Gilman specializes in retained search because we believe it results in a better process and, ultimately, in a stronger hire. Working in retained search allows us to:
- Focus on passive candidates and utilize our networks to consider the widest range of possible candidates.
- Invest in understanding the position and your culture at the start of the search so we can find the best possible fit.
- Work with you to ensure the job description has the right tone.
- Assess candidates through phone screens, in-depth interviews and Predictive Index.
- Work with you to find the right candidate—no matter how long it takes.
