Executive Search

Executive Search

Corporate-wide impact

Great leaders can catapult an organization to new heights.

Strong executive performance drives company returns.

While many firms like to present themselves as “all things to all people,” we believe in focus – both on the industries we cover and the clients with whom we work.  With this in mind, we have chosen to work with a select group of clients, focused in the following industries:

  • Oil & Gas/Oilfield Services/Pipeline
  • HVAC & Construction
  • Chemicals
  • Manufacturing
  • Not-for-Profit

No two clients are the same.  That’s why we always employ a proven process that supports full coverage of the marketplace to ensure the best match for our clients and placements.  Instead of using the “little black book” of search, we perform original research for companies and leaders that could fit your parameters to always have an eye to fresh perspectives on your industry and leadership.  Our process, shown below, comes from more than two decades of search experience and has been refined to serve companies from large, public entities to start-up, disruptive technology businesses.

At Grojean & Associates, our clients’ needs are important to all partners in our business, regardless of that principal’s functional area of responsibility.  We pride ourselves on taking an integrated approach to each project, leveraging all of our principals to create a truly bespoke project plan on each and every engagement.  In addition, we:

  • Limit industries and clients – we focus our services to certain industries and clients in order to best serve companies that engage us;
  • Principal-led projects – a principal won’t sell a project, only to pass it off to a junior member of the team.  The principal who initially engages with you will be with you through the entire lifecycle of the project and beyond;
  • Continued support – we maintain the relationship with both our clients and placements post projects.

With over two decades of experience in retained executive search, our principals have had the opportunity to work with some of the top companies in their industries.  From start-ups to turnarounds and publicly traded companies, Grojean & Associates is well positioned to help you find the executive leadership to drive your organization to achieve its strategic goals.
