Connecticut Headhunters

National Technology Search Practice

We are Connecticut headhunters who serve technology clients from coast-to-coast. As a national technology executive search firm, we deliver top executive and technology talent to companies with offices in the United States and Canada. However, many of our clients are large multinational corporations with worldwide corporate recruiting needs. As a result, many of our executive recruiting engagements are global endeavors.

As one of the leading national technology executive search firms in the industry, we are hard-wired into senior executive and technology leadership talent. We follow talent in the Greater New York City Area, in the Greater Boston Area in New England, in the Greater Chicago Area, in the Silicon Valley, in the San Francisco Area, in the Greater Seattle Area — and everywhere else in-between.

We are CT headhunters based in Westport, Connecticut in the Greater NYC Area, but we offer technology executive search services across the country. To learn more about who we serve, check out our areas of expertise and our client list.


Got Search?

I think what sets you aside is the data you provide both during the search and at the end. I feel this search was a success because the client understood that we had seen the market. The data we received was a surprise – a pleasant surprise.

Wherever innovation is happening, The Good Search is hard at work. From New York City to Chicago to the Silicon Valley and Seattle, we deliver high-achieving executives at venture capital-backed startups, private equity portfolio companies, and publicly traded corporations. 

Our clients have come to rely on our ability to uncover top talent you never dreamed existed for hard-to-fill leadership roles across North America and beyond. In fact, we are counted among the most connected technology search firms in the business. 

We are a national technology executive search firm with experience recruiting experienced technology leaders and innovators at technology hubs from coast-to-coast.   

As a technology hub, Austin is considered one of the hippest towns in Texas with a renowned music scene. The cost of living has made it an attractive alternative to the Silicon Valley, so much so that Oracle has announced it is moving its corporate headquarters there from Redwood City, California and Elon Musk has moved himself to Austin.

Boston has a rich history as a leading technology hub along the Route 128 corridor and is home to major names in technology like iRobot, Hubspot, and Akamai Technologies.

Chicago is home to successful startups like Orbitz, Redbox, Grubhub, Braintree, Groupon, and Simple Mills and is a leader in quantum technology innovation.

The ‘Silicon Mountain’ of Denver is the home of many startups and is the new headquarters for data analytics company Palantir.

The birthplace of IBM, New York City is now the home to successful brands like Square, E*Trade and Trello.

Originally home to silicon chip makers that include Intel, Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area host the world’s most powerful and successful companies that include Alphabet/Google, Apple, Facebook, Oracle, Salesforce, Tesla, Twitter, and Uber.

And Washington D.C. is no longer just a government center but also a place of technological innovation. So much so that Amazon is establishing its second Headquarters (HQ2) in Arlington, Virginia. 

All of this to say, we know the technology industry. After 20 years in executive search, we understand how to follow the talent and know where to look to find your ideal candidate. 

Financial Hubs

The Good Search has experience recruiting top executives in FinTech, banking, venture capital, and financial services.

Whether anchored by a global company or supported by rising startups, financial services hubs are growing across the country. Atlanta has been nicknamed “Transaction Alley” because of its large community of payment processing tech companies. Nearly 70% of U.S. transactions take place in the state. Charlotte is both the longtime home of banking giants, like Bank of America, and of startups, like LendingTree, that make it the second largest banking center in the United States. And Los Angeles FinTech benefits from access to young talent at UCLA and cheaper real estate than the Silicon Valley.  

As national technology executive recruitment firm, we are excited by the increasing role technology plays in financial services. We work hard to support innovation in this sector by finding and placing top executives at leading companies.

We are also experienced headhunters passionate about recruiting executive leadership in Biotechnology, Genomics, Pharmaceuticals, Therapeutics, and other fields in the life sciences. The Good Search is honored to be able to partner with those fighting against the COVID-19 pandemic and working to develop the future of medicine. 

As the life sciences and technology are closely related, many of the technology hubs we know and love are also the seats of scientific innovation. Boston, home to both renowned universities and major biotechnology companies such as Biogen, Genzyme and Novartis, has a deep pool of executive leaders. San Francisco Bay Area led the country in BioPharma Venture Capital Funding, over $10 billion, and patents in 2020. And Illinois’s $9 million Rebuild Illinois Wet Lab Capital Program makes Chicago a growing hotspot for life science leadership. 

As COVID-19 continues to change the life science landscape, The Good Search stays attuned to trends and insights that help us find you the best candidate possible.
