After all, the work we do has a powerful impact and we believe we have a responsibility to be nothing less than excellent. We also believe helping people and organizations through change is important business. It affects profitability, and the capacity to adapt quickly to new conditions. And it affects the very lives of those employees who will drive the vision forward, as well as of those who are in transition.

Providing career transition services for separating employees is a sound business practice for responsible employers.

Hunt Executive Search works with line managers and human resource professionals in early-stage enterprises, established businesses, and multinational entities — of all sizes, across all sectors and industries — to plan and implement business initiatives that entail reductions-in-force. All our programs and services are delivered in an appropriate tone and style, promoting constructive reactions from employees and broader business and social communities.

We help corporate clients:

  • configure effective and efficient programs/services for separating employees
  • coordinate notification-event and separation logistics

We work with you as you plan your actions from scratch, and will continue to help you fine-tune your actions before implementation. HES brings a history of experience and success … as well as the most contemporary career transition services and offerings to effectively address current market conditions and career transition trends. Even organizations and managers well experienced in conducting reductions-in-force say that HES provides them with unique, value-added assistance.Our most significant differentiators are that unlike any other outplacement service we are aware of, we have market mastery; we have the contacts and relationships; and we contribute proactively to getting the executives we serve connected with their target audience. We do much more than just counsel. We connect and engage.

You retain us to provide services to your former employees, and we are accountable to both you and them for delivery of high-value and high-quality service and results. Our approach is proactive and very hands on. Talk with one of our consultants and you will know the difference in what we can provide versus the traditional outplacement services.


Now that much of the hard work is completed and all of the candidates have been interviewed, it’s decision time. At the end of the day, the primary responsibility of any executive is to make a decision. With the client we benchmark the candidates and make a hiring decision. This decision is arrived at through countless steps in the process, some of which are outlined in this search process presentation.

Once a decision is made, an offer is negotiated and formulated between us and the client. The offer is extended and accepted both verbally and in writing. We professionally release the remaining candidates. A start date is established and the deal is almost complete.

We further discuss the resignation process with the candidate, assist in the drafting of a resignation letter and discuss the realities of counter offers and everything else they will experience during the resignation process. We coach the candidate through the resignation, keeping the client apprised of each step along the way. The candidate begins work and we ask the client where else in the organization can we be of service.

  • Recruiting Senior Management for Portfolio Companies

A significant proportion of our work involves recruiting senior management to portfolio companies — from Chairman and CEOs to finance heads and other functional vertical enterprise leaders. Through our successful Executive Search Practice we have unrivalled access to board directors across all industries. Our consultants bring extensive knowledge, relevant search experience and operational expertise to every assignment. They understand the importance of flexibility and speed and adapt well to the changing needs of clients. They understand the skills that executives need to operate effectively in a private equity-backed environment.

Succession Management

A recent survey found that over 1/3 of independent business owners plan to exit their business within the next 5 years. Within the next 10 years, 2/3 of owners plan to exit. The survey also found that most small and medium-sized enterprises are not adequately prepared for their business succession: only 10% of owners have a formal, written succession plan; 38% have an informal, unwritten plan; and the remaining 52% do not have any succession plan at all. Over that time period, an estimated $1.2 trillion in business assets are poised to change hands.

Research indicates many succession-planning initiatives fall short of their intent. “Bench strength,” as it is commonly called, remains a stubborn problem in many if not most companies. Studies indicate that companies that report the greatest gains from succession planning feature high ownership by the CEO and high degrees of engagement among the larger leadership team.

Clear objectives are critical to establishing effective succession planning. Our professionals can help your company establish a succession plan that:

  • Identifies those with the potential to assume greater responsibility in the organization
  • Provides critical development experiences to those that can move into key roles
  • Engages the leadership in supporting the development of high-potential leaders
  • Builds a data base that can be used to make better talent decisions for key jobs
  • Improves employee commitment and retention
  • Meets the career development expectations of existing employees
