Mastering the Art and Science of Executive Recruitment

About Hunt Executive Search

A global provider of senior-executive search and leadership consulting services, we advise our clients on recruiting and developing effective leaders who can significantly impact success of our clients.

We are the leading retained executive search firm focused exclusively on consumer products, life sciences, retail and diversified industrial space. We also work with Private Equity Firms that invest in these businesses.

Our Passion

It’s a wonderful thing to make a significant contribution to the betterment of our clients and positively impact the quality of the candidates’ lives we serve. We are passionate about making a difference in the lives of our hiring managers, candidates and the countless stakeholders our services impact each and every day. That’s what motivates us to do what we do better than any rival organization.


The business community we serve is facing unprecedented challenges in attracting, retaining and developing senior management.

Our client’s success is our success

On average our publicly traded clients delivered compound annual returns to shareholders that exceed the S&P 500 by more than 15 percent and our private equity clients even higher. While we don’t take credit for our clients success, were proud to make significant contributions through the leadership we install.

Our consultants are expert with a wealth of experience conducting the most critical search assignments for demanding, sophisticated clients throughout the globe.

The singular pursuit of creating exceptional long-term value for clients defines the culture of Hunt Executive Search. We tend to form deep, long-lasting and meaningful client relationships; while we’re capable of doing high volume, we don’t treat search as a transaction.

Select & Limited Number of Clients

Our partners are experts in our clients’ industries.  They remain completely engaged in all critical elements of the search, and devote significant time and attention to each client relationship, and assignment.

Members of the Hunt team do not “sell” searches and then leave inexperienced, junior staff to set strategy, assess candidates and counsel clients. They do the heavy lifting alongside of our consultants and associates. Partners remain connected and engaged throughout the process until the search is successfully completed.

Our executive search agreements are performance based. This truly separates us from our competitors. Key performance milestones drive our process and the search agreements that govern the way we get compensated.
