Executive Search

We find, evaluate and place candidates in critical leadership roles through a proven search process.

Finding leaders that are critically important for the success of your company demands a rigorous search process that uncovers the ‘off paper’ factors that will make or break the fit of the chosen candidate.

We believe that the initial phase of the search is just as important as every other phase – simply because the culture, key competencies and critical success factors are discussed and agreed upon by your company’s management and our search consultants.  Status reporting, written candidate evaluations and passive candidate identification are all cornerstones of our process that have been proven time and time again.

Our ProcessYour success is our goal. Our process helps our clients and candidates through each step of recruitment to find the best fit for each position.

When you work with the JK Exec team, the search process is custom-built to your company and for your particular position.  Through 20 years of executive search experience, we have found that the initial phase of the search, our Due Diligence phase, can be the most important part of the search process.  The Due Diligence phase identifies the proper skill-set, personality, and off-paper requirements of the position and can be the key to finding the proper leader for your organization.

Once the Due Diligence phase is completed and documented, a timeline for the search is set into motion followed by core-competency identification and other desired pre-employment assessments.

Our search consultants work closely with you to deliver to the timeline, including candidate identification, screening, presentation, interviewing, reference checking and negotiations.

Throughout our experience in the search industry, we have been told that our status reporting is second to none and our clients are always apprised of our activities.   This status reporting is a cornerstone of our process and allows us to continually update and communicate our activities, challenges, suggestions and next steps as we get through the search process.

We pride ourselves on being conscientious and confidential throughout the engagement with all members of the search team.  A large amount of positions we are engaged to work on are confidential due to the level of the positions and the necessity for change management related to the search.
