Executive Advantage Group, Inc. - Experts in Mission Critical Search Solutions:

We fill positions with top A-Player talent - we don't throw stacks of resumes at our clients. If you, or any business colleagues, have similar search needs at -any- mission critical position level or functional discipline, we can help provide you with the same service as the recent clients below have commented on.

  • Andy Holroyd, Senior Vice President, Instruments Division, Ashtead Technology.
    We recently completed a retained executive search for our new VP of Sales & Marketing role using the services of Executive Advantage Group's Ron Bates and Michael Rothstein. One thing I'll say is Executive Advantage Group's networking reach and ability to cover the largest possible candidate population is impressive and quite effective. Out of the first 4 candidates submitted with the first month of the search, 2 of them became finalists with the second candidate submitted being the one we ultimately hired. Ultimately, the individual we hired is going to be invaluable.
  • Laura Larsen, Dir. HR & Administration, Zhone Technologies, Inc.
    Compared to my experiences with large firms like Spencer Stuart as well as other smaller firms, Executive Advantage Group is vastly different in a very positive way. Michael and Ron are much more thorough than anyone else. Executive Advantage Group completed our VP of Global Customer Service search in 42 days with the first candidate being submitted within the first 20 days after the spec was approved, and with all 3 candidates interviewed submitted 23 days into the search.
  • Sandra Swann, Director of Human Resources, ViewCast Corporation
    Thanks to the efforts of Executive Advantage Group's Ron Bates and Michael Rothstein, completed a Vice President of Sales retained search in 62 days with the hired candidate submitted 29 days after the spec was approved. Compared to the other both large and boutique search firms I've used, Executive Advantage Group's network is very large and they tuned into our industry specifically. There's no comparison. I knew we would be more likely to find candidates that fit our industry requirements going with Executive Advantage Group, Inc.
  • Frank Madren, President, GarrettCom, Inc.
    We recently had the need to conduct a confidential executive search to fill our Vice President of Engineering & Chief Technical Officer role at GarrettCom, Inc. Our new Vice President of Engineering & Chief Technical Officer was submitted 23 days after the search began and started work 99 days after we signed the retained search contract with Executive Advantage Group. The level of screening they took candidates through prior to formal candidate submission allowed us to go into interviews knowing more than we've ever known before on candidates prior to interview.
  • Steve Harris, VP, Research, Development and Engineering, Electro Scientific Industries, Inc.
    I recently retained Michael Rothstein and Ron Bates of Executive Advantage Group, Inc. to fill three high impact senior management positions that will be key parts of how we grow Electro Scientific Industries, Inc. We tried for 3 months to fill these positions prior to engaging Executive Advantage Group. I would strongly recommend Executive Advantage Group to others with mission critical recruiting needs for one simple reason - results - Michael and Ron got it done. One of the candidates we hired even said, "I wish I would have found those guys when I was looking to hire candidates.

Our firm's references and example full-page client reference letters can be viewed on our website under - Client References. You'll note from our references we are a truly unique retained search firm that consistently gets the job done for clients that retain our services. We have filled every search in the last 8 years within 45-90 days (or less) with the hired candidate being one of 2-4 bull's eye rifle shots submitted within the first 30 days of the search. I would happy to speak with you about your company's search needs when you feel the timing is right.

With each Principal having +20-year careers in sales, marketing & technology management and having worked for Hewlett Packard, MentorGraphics, TRW, Raytheon, ComputerVision and Spherion, we're former top performing Managing Directors, Vice Presidents, and Partners with Heidrick & Struggles and StratfordGroup - both retained executive search firms. You will -never- find retained executive recruiters with our experience and direct industry backgrounds. We work with client's that believe it's paramount they acquire the -best- possible talent for mission critical positions.  We excel at identifying, assessing, and assisting our clients in capturing differentiated talent.

I look forward to your response.
