On Executive Search

We use executive search because we need much more than a passive public posting of our positions, especially at the senior management level.  We need to be able to tap into circles of highly qualified individuals with specialized skills, including those who may not be actively seeking a new position at the moment.  In addition, the search firm is extremely helpful in vetting these prospective candidates based on our job needs as well as organizational culture and then only forwarding the candidates who are a strong fit.

On Lochlin Partners

Lochlin has conducted numerous executive searches for us.  They take the time up front to get to know the senior leadership team which is critical in order to identify candidates who are not only technical experts but who will also be a strong fit for the organization and a team player.  They clearly have access to wide networks of highly qualified professionals and their management of the entire process ensures a smooth recruitment experience for us.

We have worked with Lochlin Partners five times for executive recruitment in the last 3 years. Lochlin not only presents high quality candidates, but knows who we are and uses that information to make sure candidates will be a good fit for the organization and within the leadership team.  There’s a reason we keep going back to them!
