"Our only product is the performance of the candidates whom we place,
they tell our story" – Mark Magruder
As a boutique retained executive search firm, Magruder Executive Search is committed to the life-cycle of the search process. Understanding a client's business and introducing complementary candidates for critical leadership roles is the essence of retained executive search.
Search is not a transaction, but a deliberate process.
Integrity throughout the process including how a client is represented in the marketplace is a key differentiator for an executive search firm.
We've supported innovators, and clients which seek innovative approaches to complex operating environments.
Magruder Executive Search focuses on partnering with clients to identify candidates who are not in the market, but might consider a new opportunity. Successful retained executive search is more than simply identifying qualified candidates. The challenge is introducing candidates that fit the culture and make-up of the leadership team. Client's businesses which thrive on innovation requiring different leadership, or a fresh approach make-up a majority of our search practice.
By actively listening to understand our client’s businesses, as well as understand what will fit them given the make-up of the teams involved, we’re able to uniquely represent our clients in the marketplace.
The performance of our candidates reflects the commitment to our process. Our firm’s principals understand the type of leaders that thrive in growth oriented publicly traded and privately held companies.
We value long term relationships which we have developed with our private equity clients who appreciate our service and commitment to introducing complementary candidates who are motivated for the right reasons.
