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

As a firm, we’re relationship-driven as a core value, and that certainly extends to how we interact with our clients. We have many client relationships that extend back 10, 15, or even 20 years, but even for new clients, we get to know them as well as they know themselves, and their firm cultures, business strategies, and potential for the future. That enables us to find the perfect leadership match, for their specific needs.

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

The highest compliment that clients can give, is to put their trust in us to find them exceptional leadership talent – and to continue doing so as we build out their executive teams, and partner with them over the long-term.

What do you think is the most difficult part of executive search, and how do you respond to it?

Every client is different, and every search has its own nuances, and differentiating factors. Getting to know our clients, their respective businesses, cultures, and what makes them unique, is an intensive and integral part of what we do. We put the time in up front in the search process, to ensure we always deliver the best outcome.

What do you love about your work?

The way we approach search is to serve as a seamless partner to our clients – their successes are our successes, and nothing is more rewarding than seeing the positive impact the right leadership can bring to a client over the long-term.
