Our Success is Directly Linked to Yours.

Thorough but Timely

Let’s face it, there is an inherent trade-off between the speed with which an assignment is executed and the degree to which your search firm has explored and developed all candidate options available to you. In other words, there’s a trade-off between being thorough and being timely.

You want both, of course, but the quality of the outcome is what everyone remembers…and rightly so. Quality takes time.

We are committed to executing your search in the least possible time. But never at the expense of being as thorough as is necessary to achieve the best result for you.

Our Specialty is Search

The question we're asked more often than any other is "What's your specialty?" Put simply, our specialty is search. It's what we do. More specifically, search work involving those critical positions that really matter to you. Positions where the right individual can make a real difference to your organization’s success.

The people who fill these positions are as important to the success of smaller teams as they are to the success of larger organizations. In fact, it's usually true that the smaller the team, the more quickly the right or wrong team member can contribute to or subtract from your success.

At McCracken Search, we are as experienced and effective working with smaller and medium-sized companies as we are larger organizations. We regularly act for a wide variety of industries and companies, ranging in size from entrepreneurial “start-ups”, through privately held mid-sized companies to industry-leading, global organizations. We value and treat all clients equally. Just as importantly, we work equally well with everyone.

Large or small, our clients are most commonly found in competitive, high-change environments where the need to identify and recruit the very best is crucial to building and sustaining competitive advantage.

Our Clients = Our Partners

We're proud of our clients and the trust-based relationships we develop with them. We look at the big picture—your big picture—not just the “specs” for a given position. And we try to stay abreast of developments in your company and your industry…both during and between assignments.

Our goal is to build long-term, "trusted partner" relationships with our clients. In the process, we often become a virtual extension of your management team and an addition to your network of personal and business advisors.

In this and many other respects, our clients are our partners too.
