Executive Search, Reimagined

The Good Search is not a traditional retained executive search firm, by design. Specializing in technology, we search smarter and give you more. Candidates you never dreamed existed. Pricing you can trust. We even hand over all the candidate research. In doing so, The Good Search recruits board and senior executive talent for some of the most powerful and successful companies in the world.

Dream Candidates

We give you candidates you never dreamed existed by searching smarter. Our investigative recruiters reach beyond traditional recruiting resources. We tap highly-placed sources and little-known databases. In doing so, we harness the power of data to uncover top-performers others miss.

Pricing You Can Trust

We give you pricing you can trust. In fact, our simple flat fee banishes conflicts-of-interest of traditional percentage-based pricing. Percentage fees reward search firms that inflate the salaries of executives they place. That’s simply not right. You shouldn’t have to wonder about a search firm’s loyalty.

All the Research

We hand over all the candidate research — something traditional search firms never do. However, we are proud to show you our work. You should never have to wonder what a search firm is doing for all that money. Better yet, you can use it to make additional hires at no additional cost. Why settle for less?

Our Secret Sauce

Founded by an award-winning investigative TV journalist with a specialty in computer-assisted research and data analytics and staffed by investigative associates, we search differently.

We leverage highly-placed sources. We reach far beyond typical recruiting resources. We develop Money Ball-like data to help identify top performers. We capture market intelligence that speeds time-to-hire. We leverage org charts and talent maps built by our research division Intellerati. That is how we deliver A-players others miss.
