About Us

Exclusive focus in HR

It’s all we do

As former consultants and leaders in HR, we get it

We know how to understand your culture and business strategy and how to find the best candidates with the right experiences and we know the differences across industries, size of firm, stage of growth and culture


Helping you find the right CHRO and working together to build their high performing team

Your success is our success

We function as an extension of your team


We take our role seriously in representing your company to everyone we speak with and providing high-touch candidate experiences

True partnership

For candidates, we are your career advisor, helping you to make the best decision. For clients, we put real skin in the game, even our terms are geared towards performance and balanced risk



Helping our clients – ranging from Fortune 50 to consultancies to startup across all industries – attract the right people into their Human Capital functions to further business goals and positive work cultures.


Helping our candidates find more fulfilling and impactful opportunities – from the C Suite to early management roles – through customized and authentic career advice and true partnership in making transition decisions.


Helping promote the Human Capital function to future talent – students, new workforce or career changers – to bring greater diversity and innovation because we believe the best minds should be focused on people and organizations.


Helping our own team develop and excel by operating in a collegial, fun, mission–driven environment that values and respects each individual's strengths and talents as well as the power of the team. We are former consultants, executives and practitioners and career advisors. We are a different kind of executive search firm.


Helping our communities through volunteering our talents and resources for people and causes that matter to us.


Do you need the right
talent for a key role?

Full Time Professionals

Our core.  We connect with and search for, place and coach game-changing leaders in Human Capital, HR, OD and Talent Management. Our partnership and consultative model has helped bring business-first HR professionals into organizations of all shapes, sizes and stages with an agenda of growth, transformation or restructuring.

Do you need key skills but
flexible contracting?


We understand the needs of the modern HR function.  The number of projects often out number the resource capacity and capability. But rather than engage with a larger consulting firm to fill those gaps, we help you find high-performing independent consultants.  Our independent consultants provide the right capability at the right time with the right flexibility.

Do you need an interim or
turnaround executive?


Whether a leader is out for an extended time, you’re preparing for a milestone like an IPO or sale, or an internal successor isn’t quite ready, we can help you fill that gap with an interim leader. Where desired, this also enables a thorough permanent search to be conducted while allowing for the function to continue to operate.  This model limits disruption and enables the organization to progress.

Do you need an
executive coach?


We know that finding the right coach can be tough. Through the years we have curated a group of talented professionals across roles and industries who have success in coaching for various phases of career, during transitions to new lateral roles or elevated positions and even making a career change. Our coaches can make all the difference.

If you think we could help your organization or you could be a candidate for one of these types of roles, we’d love to get to know you. Contact us.
