Make Headlines: Hire a Rockstar*

(*We find it ironic our CEO actually married a real one.)


Our Latest News


The Good Search is a headline-making retained executive search firm.  We deliver marquis name senior executive and technology talent that generates valuable buzz and publicity for our clients. For Silicon Alley startups backed by top-tier venture capital firms, legendary hires inspire the confidence of investors.  Rockstar executives attract the next round venture capital funding. For the portfolio companies of private equity firms, a top performing executive is master of the turnaround.

Life is too short not to be legendary. We are a search firm led by a former national television journalist whose work was watched by millions of viewers. She is regularly interviewed and quoted in publications ranging from IEEE’s Spectrum Magazine to the Wall Street Journal. We operate with that same deadline sensibility to this day. While we live to help our executive recruiting clients make their own headlines, here are a few of our own.
