What do you think differentiates The Alexander Group from other executive search firms?

Every search we conduct is tailored to the specific needs and culture of our clients. We don't rely on our extensive database of candidates we have built over 40 years of relationship building. Instead, we want to capture the market as it exists on the day our clients give us the green light to start a search. Our team of researchers are active partners throughout the search process, constantly adapting their strategies to fit the latest feedback from our clients.

What’s the highest compliment a client can give you?

"You get it." That means I've done my job to understand their company culture and elevate a pool of candidates that we are confident will make in immediate positive impact in their organization.

What do you love about your work?

I love being a link in the chain of events that leads a candidate to land their dream job, or our clients hiring the executive that will move their organization forward. We serve as the catalyst for those new relationships.
