Launched in 2002 and founded by a team of industry veterans who have a proven track record in retained executive search, the Laurel Group was established as an alternative to the way executive search has been done for the last 50 years.
With a focus on building executive teams for technology-enabled companies across multiple verticals, we understand it’s more about talent management than search. We spend every day meeting, understanding, and developing executive talent before there is even a need. We get to the root of who executive candidates are, what they excel in, and where they want to go in their career, with the simple result of delivering executive talent to our clients.
Our time to close metric shows our ability to quickly source, recruit, and manage the candidate process to completion. On average, we have been able to have a candidate accept an offer in 72 days of taking the search to market.
Since we are a boutique executive search firm and focus our engagements with specific partners, our number of ``off-limit`` clients is minimal so we can recruit candidates from almost anywhere.
We are a leading executive search firm in Seattle and Silicon Valley with a demonstrated track record of sourcing talent nationally and internationally for our clients.
Thank you, Laurel Group. We are thrilled that you have closed yet another critical hire for us. Your efforts have made a big impact on the organization. Thank you, again.
We have engaged the Laurel Group on two of our key leadership roles and they have been very thorough and understand the players in the market very well. Their guidance and ability to bring our unique story to the right candidates worldwide was exceptional. They are a strong partner and we look forward to working with them in the future.
When looking for a VP of Marketing, the Laurel Group was very knowledgeable & understand what the position required - competencies, skills, & experience as well as the type of person who would be effective immediately in the Indix culture & grow with the company through rapid growth.
I have worked with the Laurel Group recruiting directors for a large public company board I sit on, They helped define the skills, experience, and attributes for our searches and successfully closed two top-notch technology executives.
The Laurel Group team was incredibly thorough & efficient in finding us two outstanding candidates. Their extensive network & keen understanding of what's needed to build software businesses made them an ideal fit for us at IMS Health. We look forward to working with them again in the future.
The Laurel Group has been a great complement to our internal recruiting efforts. Chris and the team are well networked and well regarded amongst Seattle technology executives. They have been able to open up a number of strong recruiting conversations that neither we ourselves nor our investors had been able to facilitate.
