Why Keynote Search for your C-Suite executive search and recruitment?


Our executive search process is tailored to your organization’s unique needs. We take the time to understand your company’s culture, vision, and goals, as well as the specific requirements of the role you need to fill. Our team uses this information to create a comprehensive position profile, which we use to identify and compel potential C-suite candidates.

Once we have identified top quartile potential C-suite candidates, we use a rigorous screening process to ensure that they meet your organization’s needs. Our team conducts exhaustive in-depth interviews, evaluates their skills and experience, as well as reference checks. We also assess their fit with your company culture and leadership style, ensuring that they will be a seamless addition to your team with optional Hogan Assessments. To support their integration, our executive search process doesn’t end once we have found a successful candidate. Each C-suite placement includes our 90- day post-placement integration program with regular, collaborative meetings with their team and our coach. The goal is for the C-suite executive to achieve quicker productivity, a deeper understanding of the organization, and achieve clear alignment and communication in their new role.

It is so easy to get lost in the business, to the point where working on the business is sacrificed. Our experience with Keynote allowed us to achieve our goals without sacrifice. Their professionalism, knowledge and understanding of the market combined with the time taken to understand our objectives, made our expansion seamless. Their process took all of the guess work out of our hands which gave us the ability to move forward efficiently and effortlessly.”

I was lucky enough to work with the Keynote team on several occasions. I appreciate the work they do and do very well. They find hundreds of potential candidates that can do the job, present the top candidates that they have thoroughly evaluated to fit within our company, and help to onboard and ensure their long-term success. I would strongly recommend using them to find the best person that will succeed.

Keynote took a keen interest in all facets of our organization to ensure they had a grasp on how a potential candidate could provide executive leadership, value and fit within our culture. They went above and beyond to market the opportunity to a targeted group of individuals that they had screened in-depth to ensure that an extremely impressive short-list of candidates was presented for review by the Board’s Executive Search Committee.
