Staying first, fast, and foremost in the hearts and minds of customers is no easy feat. This is especially the case in an industry as competitive as retained executive search.
That’s why we were delighted for our friends at The Alexander Group when they shared the news that for the third time in a row, Forbes included them among the Top 50 Executive Search Firms in America. This year they rank #31.
So what has led to this repeated honor? We believe an essential component of creating value for any company is going above and beyond the transaction. This is an approach that is not based upon company size; it’s based upon trust. When you build relationships that serve all parties well, it goes a long way toward winning the game not only in the short term but in the long term as well.
Jane Howze, Founder and Managing Director of The Alexander Group, exemplifies this approach. In 2018, she joined us for an episode of Growth Igniters® Radio to pull back the curtain on her award-winning search firm. Here is a link to our conversation.
