OUR EXPERIENCE MAKES US DIFFERENT

Our team is experienced. And our experience extends well beyond recruiting. Affiliate team members have been senior executives in large corporations, founded companies, been successful CEOs, grown businesses, worked internationally, been integral in high-growth startups, and been accountable to investors and boards of directors.

Why does this matter to you? Because we have been in your shoes. We know what finding the “right hire” really means. We know how important it is for candidates to fit your corporate culture. We understand how much having a key role open for a period of time costs your company. All because we’ve been there. That is what makes us different from well-known search firms. We treat every open position with the urgency it deserves. And we do our very best to pre-screen the candidates for skills and fit so you will only see qualified applicants for your openings. And that makes us different from internet job sites. Experience matters, and we have it and apply it to your critical hires.

ABOUT STRINGER EXECUTIVE SEARCH

Executive search has not changed for decades. High retainers and slow processes continue to be the norm for well-known search firms. Internet services flood you with unscreened candidates. You need better recruiting results and Stringer Search is ready to provide them for you. We are a team made up of elite recruiters. Together we're changing the rules of recruiting so you can count on hiring better talent, faster, and for less. How can we do that for you? We call it the Five "Rs" of Recruiting.

Responsive

When we meet with hiring managers and execs like you, we always hear the same thing. Your position needs to be filled yesterday. We understand that. That’s why we meet with you a.s.a.p. to get a full briefing on the job requirements and ideal candidate. That ensures that you start seeing the right kind of candidates sooner. Some of our clients can tell you that we were able to present them with good candidates on the same day we met. That’s rapid response!

Relevance

 Stringer Search is different. We’re made up of a community of  elite expert recruiting affiliates. Why does that matter to you? Each of our affiliates has experience in your industry. As such you can rest assured we understand what it takes to succeed in your business. Because we know your industry, we also know people from your industry and that can help us find the ideal candidate, faster.

Relationships

Relationships in recruiting matter. With you and with the candidates we find for you. Filling your open position is important to us.  The sourcing process will start immediately by tapping into our networks and using technology to match the right talent to your need. Part of our process is to actively screen the candidates before you see them to make sure you see the best. You’ll hear from us continuously throughout the process so you’ll always know the status. We value our relationship with the candidates too. Even if you don’t hire them they may be a perfect candidate for another company in the future so we want to make sure their experience is good too.

Reasonable

Because we are a community of affiliated executive search professionals we don’t need fancy offices. We work virtually. We share back office and recruiting technology. That allows all of us to use the latest technology to help with sourcing and screening. Our process is efficient and our overhead is low. You’ll get better, faster results, for less than any of the “big name” executive search firms can offer.

Results

None of this matters if you don’t hire the best talent for your open position. Our track record speaks for itself. Time and time again for companies just like yours, filling the same kinds of positions, our process has produced great candidates quickly. And you can see this for yourself by looking at the testimonials here.

DELIGHTED CLIENTS

Placing executives in companies from STARTUPS to FORTUNE 500

  • I couldn’t have been happier with our search for a V.P. Sales. Stringer generated three very hire-able finalists for the job and we were able to close on our number one choice. All of the finalists were spot on in terms of the desired spec.

    Bill Wood, Managing Director, Silverton Partners
  • Stringer Executive Search identified and help retain experienced high performing executive talent for several key positions. The quality of the resources identified within our specific industry knowledge base and skill set exceed all of my expectations. Working with SES enabled us to achieve our aggressive payment industry growth objectives.

    Jack Jania, SVP Global Strategic Partnerships, Gemalto Inc.
  • I engaged Stringer to help us fill a critical executive role shortly after launching our company and securing our first round of financing. They were up front about fees and expectations and the search process was very efficient. As a busy founder/CEO, using Stringer gave me the confidence we would find the best candidate while allowing me to focus on building the business.

    Brandon Stewart, CEO, Outbound Engine
  • It was a pleasure to work with Hank and the Stringer Executive Search team.  The process was professional and the candidate selection outstanding.  I would engage again and happy to refer this valuable resource. 

    Gary L. Nelson, Chairman, Akami Technology
  • Stringer was extremely creative, resourceful and tenacious in finding an outstanding VP Sales for us. They listen well, think big and keep following through until the person is in the seat!

    Duncan Van Dusen, Board Member, Tango Health
  • Stringer has been a tremendous asset to Main Street Hub. Their experience building teams and deep knowledge of the technology community in Austin were of great value to us in identifying and connecting with an individual who is now a key member of our team. I look forward to working with Stringer in the future, and I would recommend them without hesitation.

    Andrew Allison, CEO, Main Street Hub
  • What can I say about Hank??!! Besides the fact that Hank is a guru in the world of leading edge recruitment, he also stays true to his craft and takes on searches for companies. Hank helped us out at Apollo Group with a number of VP level positions that we were looking to fill. Hank’s networks run deep and not only did we fill positions with Hank’s candidates, he brought us other talent that we didn’t know we needed but ended up hiring! Hank is a true business partner and I would work with him again in a heartbeat!

    Shelley Zajic, VP of Human Resources, Apollo Group
  • Hank is the consummate search professional. I have used his services to locate technology leadership positions and people over the past 20 years and can highly recommend his firm.

    Marty Sayer, Chief Strategy Officer, AMD
