Our investigative approach to Technology Executive Search makes us one of the top technology headhunters in the industry. We’ve banished percentage-based fees and their inherent conflicts of interest.

We’ve also eliminated the lack of transparency that leaves clients wondering what a search firm is doing for all that money.

In return, you get dream candidates, flat fees, and all the research. You can use it to make additional hires at no additional cost and to audit our work. Why settle for less?

3 Points of Difference

Our flat fees eliminate conflicts of interest found in percentage-based executive search pricing. Though charging a percentage of first-year compensation is common in the search business, it bakes in a conflict of interest. Percentage-based fees reward consultants that inflate the salaries of the candidates that are hired. You shouldn’t have to wonder where a search firm’s loyalties lie.

The Good Search searches smarter and gives you more. We hand over all our candidate research — something traditional retained search firms rarely, if ever, do. (Perhaps that’s because it’s the only way to audit their work.) We’re proud to show you what we’ve done on your behalf. You can use that research to make additional hires at no additional cost. Why settle for less?
