Some journeys are more impactful than others. Executive search and recruiting is one of them. Indeed, there are few initiatives as strategically challenging, as demanding on management, and as fundamentally disruptive to normal operations as a leadership search — which is precisely why it’s Perry-Martel’s singular focus.
A successful executive search is the only initiative that can completely move a group of people to the next level, to a place where they can realize their potential. A leadership search is much more than renewal or reorganization. When done right, it isn’t just valuable — it’s critical.
At Perry-Martel we’re experts in executive search and recruiting. We know what’s required of leaders and how to support them, what work structures must be updated and how to do it, and how corporate culture must be refreshed to enable change. Most importantly, we know these elements must be balanced within a talent strategy that grounds the entire process. Every search is a journey. Without a map, it’s very easy to get lost on the way.
The following sections describe our expertise and approach.
Executive Search as a Catalyst for Success and Growth
Whether we are working with start-ups or mature organizations, Perry-Martel enters as a catalyst for success. Since 1988, we have worked with hundreds of companies and just as importantly, peeked behind the scenes at hundreds of thousands of others.
The focus of our engagements for the last 10 years have been at the top level: chief executive officers, chief operating officers, vice presidents and directors of: sales, finance, engineering, product management, IT, and marketing.
We formed Perry-Martel in October 1988 as a management consulting firm that would specialize in executive search. This means, specifically, that while the principle focus of the firm is executive search and executive selection, we can counsel and advise you on succession planning, organizational design, and strategy – before, after or during the executive search process.
