Executive & Professional Search
WE KNOW LEADERSHIP.
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.
Whether you’re looking for a President/CEO, a member of your leadership or management team, or a professional-level individual contributor, we’ll craft a specialized search strategy unique to your needs. Our in-depth listening tours help us understand your organization and culture, and our deep networks, combined with our dedicated research team and the latest technology, allow us to identify and attract the top passive candidates in the market. In the end, your organization will be able to make a confident hiring decision.
But our process isn’t all that sets us apart from other search firms. Our clients say they continue to choose Gilman Partners because they know we’ll work in their best interest and do what’s right — not just what’s easy. And they trust us to represent their organization and brand in the market.
Experience the Gilman Partners Difference.
Here are just some of the things our long-time clients say differentiate us from other search firms.
We Act in Your Best Interest
When we partner with clients, we become an extension of their leadership team and act accordingly. We succeed by doing what’s right — not what’s easy.
We Work Hard to Understand your Culture
We invest heavily to understand our clients’ organizational culture so we can assess candidate fit — one of the critical elements of employee engagement, success, and retention.
We'll be Candid and Transparent
We do our best work when we join forces with our clients, communicate frequently, and are free to speak the truth — even when that’s hard to do.
We Build Long-Term Relationships
We are authentic and genuine with our clients and candidates and keep the long game in mind. More than 75% of our searches each year come from repeat clients.
Gilman Partners specializes in retained search because we believe it results in a better process and, ultimately, in a stronger hire. Here’s why:
- We focus on passive candidates, those not actively looking for a new role. Our networks, the expertise of our research team, and our state-of-the-art technology enable us to do this, so our clients are able to consider the widest range of possible candidates.
- We invest in understanding the position and your culture at the start of a search – not just quickly generating resumes of those who may have potential. We also frequently develop a Predictive Index Job Model that is useful when assessing possible candidates.
- We work with clients to ensure the job description has the right tone and presents their organization and the position in the best possible light.
- We thoroughly assess candidates through phone screens, in-depth interviews, and the use of Predictive Index. We only present candidates who match the qualifications and those we believe are a fit.
- We’re committed to working with you to find the right candidate –regardless of how long it takes.
