Executive Search

Executive Search is all about leaders finding leaders.

You already know that finding GREAT C-level executives don’t come from a job posting, and all-stars certainly don’t apply. It’s a search. But did you know that the most effective searches happen when leaders reach out to leaders? Well, that’s Patrice & Associates Executive Search, a company with hundreds of pros who spent years in the top ranks of corporations in the US, Canada, and worldwide.

Top talent and only top talent. That’s what you can expect.

Whether your search is for a CEO, COO, CFO, CMO, or any other C-level position, when you put your Patrice Pro on the task, you can count on meeting the top talent that not only has the qualifications but also is a fit for your organization. You may find it hard to choose from the two or three candidates you meet. That’s part of the job: screening the very best from the best. You’ll only meet the ones who pass our rigorous vetting process.

The candidates you’ll meet are pre-sold on your company. Time saver!

Too often, with other staffing companies, recruiters don’t take the time to sell their top candidates on the opportunity. Not the case with Patrice. Every one you meet would love to land the position. Otherwise, why waste your time with a face-to-face meeting? Yes, we pre-qualify based on the opportunity and their interest level, in addition to their qualifications and fit with your company.

The search starts with our network and extends as far as necessary to get you exactly the talent you seek.

Our Patrice Pros have networks that span the globe. That perfect candidate might be right in your city or town. Or not. Not a problem! Patrice Pros are in hundreds of cities across North America and collaborate often to find the best person for the job. In our network, everyone knows someone or two or three or more influencers who can steer our search. It’s a very relationship-based process.

Curious whether your next C-suite executive is already on our radar? That would be “sweet!”

Pardon the pun, but how fantastic would it be to have that perfect exec within our sights? It would get you to GREAT faster than planned, and that could mean the difference between so-so quarterly performance and exceptional. The right leader can make an impact quickly. Contact us today, and let’s talk about your current executive search. Give us a shot at finding that needle in a haystack. You’ll be not only glad you did, but thrilled you’ve found a new partner in your company’s growth.
