Louisville Executive Recruiter

As an executive recruiter, Gilman Partners works with companies in Louisville and throughout Kentucky to attract top-level talent to their organization. Just south of Gilman Partners’ Cincinnati office, Louisville’s close-knit business community and strong manufacturing industry have led to successful partnerships with our firm. As an executive search firm, we’ve completed executive recruiting and professional searches for Louisville leaders at all levels—from Presidents and other C-Suite executives to high-performing individual contributors. We’ve made successful placements in nearby Lexington, Kentucky, too.

With the technology and tools that rival big national firms combined with our smaller-market focus, we understand the unique needs of privately-held, family-owned and non-profit organizations in the central Kentucky region. Some of our Louisville clients include Arrow Electric, Zoeller Pump Company, and Farm Credit MidAmerica.

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 Louisville executive recruiters 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.

Executive Talent Search Made Easy.

Working with an Louisville executive recruiter doesn’t need to be difficult. When we partner with clients, we become an extension of their leadership team.  Every executive talent search or professional recruiting is conducted according to what’s right—not necessarily what’s easy. We work hard to understand your culture, so each talent search results in a fit that’s right for your particular organization.

Gilman Partners works with Louisville and Lexington clients across many different industries and functions to recruit top talent for executive-level and professional positions. Our talent acquisition process is complete only when a contract is signed, as we source candidates throughout the entire executive recruiting process.
