The Good Search
The Good Search is not a traditional executive search firm by design. So we built a better retained search experience. We make search smarter and give you more. Dream candidates. Pricing you can trust. And all the research. We just happen to deliver great leadership hires.
Founded by Emmy Award-winning investigative journalist Krista Bradford, our investigative approach powered by generative AI is light-years beyond that of traditional retained executive firms.
We focus on execution to give you the most accomplished executives the market has to offer for game-changing hires.
Executive Recruiting Newbie?
If you are a new executive recruiting buyer, we bring you up to speed. We give you information about the executive recruitment process and about what a retained recruiting engagement might cost in The Definitive Guide to Executive Recruiting Firms and Pricing.
Contingency or Retained?
If you have an important senior leadership opening to fill, one of the most important decisions you face is whether to do the recruiting in-house or engage a recruitment partner. To engage an executive recruitment firm, you first must decide what kind of firm is right for you.
List of Top Search Firms?
If you’re seeking a shortlist of top executive headhunters, you may want to check out our investigation into the leading lists on the Internet. We detail the reasons why you should be wary of most top executive search firm lists. In fact, it is often best to build your own shortlist.
Fortune 100 technology companies, private equity portfolio companies, and top-tier venture capital startups come to The Good Search for competitive advantage. Our investigative approach to headhunting uncovers transformative leaders others miss.
We build executive teams for growth-stage and venture-backed companies as well as for private equity turnarounds. When game-changing leaders are hard to find and even harder to recruit, our investigative approach outperforms traditional headhunting firms. Like the clients we serve, we leverage generative AI in the work that we do to maximize results.
Technology Industry Expertise
Moreover, our technology industry expertise enables us to recruit executives across multiple industry sectors including Financial Services, Travel & Hospitality, and Healthcare & Life Sciences. Consequently, we recruit executives for Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Companies developing live-saving devices, diagnostics, therapeutics, and vaccines.
Diversity Recruiting Expertise
Our investigative approach to headhunting is ideally suited for diversity recruiting and succession bench recruiting. We help Fortune 500 and employers of choice boost diversity at the senior executive level.
