The demand for top leadership talent has never been greater.

Finding exceptional leadership candidates that fit with your company and vision is a challenge. And when you need the person yesterday, time is critical. As a retained executive search firm, we work with companies to fill senior level executive roles (C-level, VP, and Director level positions) and highly specialized professional positions. We operate under a retainer agreement and work with our clients on an exclusive basis.

Why Handler for Retained Executive Search?

Precise targeting

Concentrating efforts only on those sources that generate the most qualified candidates and provide maximum access to currently employed talent.

Third-party professional assessment

Exacting evaluation of potential candidates including in-depth personal interviews, verification of experience and credentials, cultural compatibility and behavioral assessments yield only the most qualified candidates.

Insulation from unqualified candidates

Because candidates work primarily with an intermediary until the latter stages of the process, clients avoid the tedium of assessing unscreened candidates provided through conventional social and professional referrals.

Reduced management time

Since all aspects of the search are professionally managed, our client’s time is effectively utilized. Status reports are provided to track progress and clients are only involved with the selection process of the finalists.


In the event there is an unannounced management change, entrance into new markets or an incumbent still holds the position, we work anonymously and offer complete confidentiality.

There is no risk. Guaranteed.

If you’re not satisfied with our services at any time, we will refund all fees.
