WHAT SETS US APART
When clients retain Columbia Consulting Group, they receive the firm’s commitment to execute the search in a professional manner. They also receive our commitment to fulfill their expectations, no matter what it takes. Because our consultants are intimately involved with every aspect of the assignment, they do not delegate the search to junior associates.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM US
Organizations making strategic management changes often desire that the search be confidential. At the same time, executives being considered for the position must also be highly discreet as they negotiate with their potential future employer.
Our executive search practice is based on a national and international consulting network supported by in-depth research into the dynamics of the client’s business, markets, competition, and environment. We identify sectors, companies, and sources within the target industries or functions to fulfill the client’s needs. We also maintain contacts with attorneys, accountants, industry analysts and professional associations, and consultants connected with the target industries. These research activities are handled by our industry-experienced staff members who are committed to quality and confidentially.
Columbia Consulting Group will not recruit from a client for two years following the completion of the last search assignment, and will never recruit the candidate hired by our client.
Columbia Consulting Group will guarantee any individual hired through our assistance, for a period of one full year, so long as the position for which the candidate was hired does not materially change, at no cost to the client organization other than the candidate and consultant expenses. This guarantee will only be honored if all invoices submitted in connection with the original search have been paid in accordance with the terms stated thereon.
