Our Firm

For over 30 years, companies have called upon Handler & Associates to help grow their leadership base.

Handler & Associates is an Atlanta-based retained executive search firm that was founded in 1977 by Bill Handler. As a senior HR executive for an international high-growth manufacturing corporation, Bill worked with many executive search firms. Through these experiences he discovered a void in the industry. So he set out to build an executive search firm from a client’s perspective– a firm with a singular focus on delivering the very best leadership talent.

A pioneer in the executive search industry, Bill formalized and implemented procedures that are now considered best practices in the industry. In 2008 Bill stepped down from the firm, but today’s management team continues to run the business with the same commitment to innovation, client service and the pursuit of excellence.

We concentrate our search practice on executive and director level leadership talent and deliver exceptional results for our client partners. Our track record of success has enabled us to become one of Atlanta’s most respected executive search firms.

Our partners and staff are among the most knowledgeable professionals in the executive search industry. Our insight and personal corporate experience allow us to fully comprehend our client’s needs and challenges to deliver unparalleled service.

We’ve built our reputation on professionalism, integrity and an open communication style that allows us to partner with our clients at the highest levels of an organization.  We have built our practice on two important pillars:

  • We identify and assess the best leadership talent in order to deliver candidates that our clients would rarely be able to access through their existing channels.
  • We function as an extension of our client’s organizations and operate with a shared sense of urgency that delivers results quickly.

We are committed to building lasting relationships with our clients and serve many of the region’s most prominent corporations, including Fortune 500, mid sized and emerging companies. We find THE best leadership talent. You’ll notice the difference.
