N2growth's executive search practice focuses on Board and C-Level searches, with a particular emphasis on CEO search engagements for Global 1000 companies. Few things impact an organization like the leadership tone from the top, and few companies understand leadership like N2growth. The world's leading brands seek our advice and counsel on Board and CEO recruiting, development
, and succession
- we invite you to join them.
While there are clearly many choices when selecting a search firm, size is just one measure. Many executive search firms claim to be big, we claim to be better, and our track record backs it up. In every meaningful category of industry measurement, we rank at or near the top of our profession. We believe you can always tell a lot about a company by their leadership - our executive search practice is led by Patricia Lenkov, one of the industry's most respected professionals in the area of board and C-level searches globally.
N2growth's executive search practice has many competitive advantages over larger search firms, not the least of which is our ability to recruit where you want us to and wherever we determine is strategically best for your company and situation. We are not encumbered by broad “off-limits”, thereby restricting the scope of the search. Additionally, we do not keep extensive and restrictive candidate reservation lists that might bar potentially perfect candidates from inclusion in your search.
While we maintain the highest ethics and rigor in our search process, our purposeful limited size means we can offer our clients the utmost in responsiveness, flexibility and, of course, agility! Our commitment to you is the very best of our knowledge, expertise and hard work, always with your interest put first and results delivered with integrity and distinction.
Because we are a leadership development firm with an executive search practice, we have a much different approach to the business than typical executive search firms who dabble in leadership. Fact: Most search firms want C-level assignments - they pay more. Reality: Most firms are ill-equipped to take on C-level assignments, and their lack of performance ends-up costing you more. We specialize in C-Level and Board Member executive search engagements for one reason - we understand C-level executives and we have unparalleled access to them. The simple truth is this: nobody understands C-level talent better than N2growth.
