Where We Started, Where We’re Going

We’ve learned a lot the past 40 years. Industries change, technology evolves, roles expand, but one truth remains the same–people matter. Long-standing client relationships are the foundation of The Alexander Group and that will never change.

Thinking Differently, Making a Difference

40 Years of Excellence

From its inception, The Alexander Group has been about doing things differently. The firm was founded in 1983 by three women with executive search firm experience at Korn Ferry and Russell Reynolds, who decided to shake up the status quo and set a new course within the executive search industry. Different, they found, was good, if not always easy.

The steady success of The Alexander Group was built upon the belief that relationships matter and excellence is achieved through hard work, a sense of humor and innovation.

The Alexander Group continued to think differently and established sister firm Alex & Red in 2011, which conducted middle and senior management searches for clients who not only required exceptional talent, but also desired a strong bench to succeed C-suite leadership. That willingness to go beyond and approach a challenge with a different solution led to Alex & Red developing and maintaining long-term relationships, achieving success for its clients.

In 2024, The Alexander Group once again took a different view of how to best serve clients, merging with Alex & Red, giving clients a wholistic and comprehensive search experience from C-suite executives and board of directors to high impact managers and all points in between.

The Alexander Group’s extensive relationship network, robust research capabilities and relentless commitment to personalized executive search makes the firm different from others in the search industry, and with forty years of experience, six locations across the United States and thousands of happy clients who continue to rely upon The Alexander Group, it’s evident thinking differently makes a difference.
