Executive Search Process

Pursant has a proven process for executing our search engagements. Below summarizes key steps in the process:

Deep Dive
We work to develop a deep understanding of your business model, people, culture, values and desired outcomes and truly internalize this knowledge.

Team Assembly
Knowing more about your firm’s personality and management styles, we hand-pick the search team for your project, which among other key people, includes an executive that has first-hand experience managing people in these key roles.

Search Strategy
Using insight from our deep dive, we develop a profile of the ideal candidate and a roadmap to attain a slate of such talent, for your approval.

Extensive Networking
We leverage our firm’s broad network of executives, influencers and connectors, and conduct industry and functional research to identify a strong pool of prospective candidates that align with your leadership needs.

Candidate Screening
We take a number of steps to whittle down the field of prospects to the very best choices for your business: screening, multiple interviews, benchmarking, assessments and, if requested, performing thorough background checks and/or reviews by industrial psychologists.

Candidate Presentation
We assemble detailed executive profiles and interview guides for your review. We coordinate the interviews themselves and solicit your feedback. We check references and arrange for any follow-up interviews, meetings or site visits. We make sure all your questions about the candidates have been answered.

Offer Preparation and Presentation
We provide guidance should you be uncertain about the best choice. We help you assemble an offer and negotiate as needed. We provide counsel on relocation matters and on-boarding assistance.
