Our New York City Executive Search Process

Our Services

Unlike many other recruitment agencies in New York City, Keller is an award-winning firm that understands how insufficient a one-fits-all approach to executive search is. Instead, Keller sets itself apart from other agencies and their generic recruitment services by tailoring its executive search solutions to fulfill the unique requirements of each client. Through our customized, hands-on approach, we provide clientele with an experience second to none.

Delegating the search process to Keller allows clients to focus their valuable time and resources elsewhere. Our executive search process yields exemplary results, and we achieve this through our in-depth industry knowledge, our up-to-date recruitment technologies, and our international candidate network.

Our Process

At Keller, it is our mission to provide ethical, effective executive search solutions. We value and respect the safety of our clients, ensuring that each search is conducted with the utmost confidentiality.

Our highly qualified team of executive recruiters and experts in their respective fields is dedicated to matching you with talented individuals who are perfect for your business. To ensure a successful search, Keller’s team begins by first gaining a deep understanding of the business and its culture. During this crucial first step, our recruiters and consultants also aim to identify role requirements and potential challenges faced in the organization.

Armed with these insights, we can launch into our next step – market mapping and targeted headhunting to find the ideal match for your needs. Candidates who are deemed suitable go through a rigorous screening and assessment process, during which background checks are performed by our team.

This process results in a shortlist of top-tier candidates, each with the skills and personality type to not only succeed in the available position, but also integrate well into the existing team.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is Executive Search and Recruitment?

Different from other fields of recruitment, executive search stands out by focusing exclusively on recruiting and placing executive, C-level, and upper management talent. This niche is Keller’s area of expertise, and we have gained international acclaim for the excellent results and comprehensive suite of executive search services we provide.

Why Does Keller Use a Tailored Approach?

At Keller, the personal and professional experiences of our team members have helped to shape the way we as a team, and a firm, approach executive search and recruitment.

In Keller’s early days, our team was still operating under a one-fits-all approach to executive search. Each of our team members still vividly recalls an early project where we placed a candidate with an important client in need of a senior executive. We made this placement in good faith and believed that our generalized method – which had worked for clients in the past – would suffice.

However, it became increasingly clear over the next few months that the selected candidate, their skills, and their experience did not align with the unique culture and needs of the client’s company. The placement ultimately failed, but this was a turning point for the Keller team.

We finally understood the limitations of a generic recruitment strategy, and the experience underscored the importance of providing our clientele with tailor-made, customized recruitment solutions. By shifting our strategy and seeking out candidates who meet the needs of each client, Keller has been able to achieve long-term success and foster lasting relationships with our clients.

Over the years, we have helped numerous clients to find exceptional leaders, managers, C-suite professionals, and executives who have what it takes to drive their businesses forward. As a result, Keller’s name has become synonymous with executive search and recruitment.

What Happens if Keller Cannot Fill a Role?

At Keller, we stand out among other New York recruitment agencies due to our thorough executive search approach and customized staffing solutions. We employ a detailed search process that greatly minimizes the chance of Keller being unable to provide a suitable candidate.

Our goal is to identify and attract exceptionally talented candidates capable of exceeding client expectations. We also aim to provide candidates who have what it takes to drive their businesses to success.

However, it may be the case that a candidate fails to meet client requirements. In cases like these, we provide our clients with the additional guarantee of replacing any candidates who fall short of expectations or fail to fulfill their job duties – provided this issue is brought to our attention within 90 days of hiring.
