At Perry-Martel, executive search is science and art; proven approach and infinitely flexible process.

In the abstract, we apply a uniform approach, we construct a talent map for recruiting, following a set of proven steps that lays a sure foundation for identifying, evaluating and attracting your executive.

On the ground, every map is modified and shaped into a plan that fits the particular requirements of the opportunity — every road is built to fit the demands of the landscape. While every search project is different, our experience has shown that two general environments shape our approach from the outset:

The drive to create value in an intensely competitive marketplace; a fluid, mobile workforce and unpredictable global environment; the demands of investors and stakeholders; the economic fallout when strategy fails. This is the context of the commercial enterprise.

The commercial enterprise environment comes with many challenges and risks. It also comes with immense opportunities to improve performance through leadership.  Centralized hierarchies of authority and accountability allow leaders to communicate dramatic new visions with clarity. Potential rewards for managers, employees, and other stakeholders help align goals and build commitment to new structures. The ability to quickly harness new technology and capitalize on global markets creates the foundation for startling value creation.

At Perry-Martel we understand how and why commercial enterprises work. The results of our executive search projects help them work better.
