Consulting & Executive Recruiting? Yes!

Yes, of course!  We’ve found that often companies need both new people, and a fresh pair of eyes. This is especially true when it comes to startups. As consultants, we are involved with and must use the latest technologies. With 50 years in senior technology roles, our three consultant’s experience is constantly used both in consulting and headhunting.

Consultants make the best headhunters.

We’ve found that working in the field with companies keep our skills sharp, which makes us better headhunters.  Having the skills that the executives we place must know, makes us better executive recruiters than those that once knew the latest techniques ten or twenty years ago, or learned them in a B-school class.
