Global reach with local expertise
Your CEO Achieves More
Achieve More With Cornerstone
Cornerstone’s member offices are owner-managed, regional leaders and share best practices worldwide. As a retained executive search firm, this means not just sourcing the best person but getting him or her contributing to your success in the shortest time.
But it’s not just speed. Hiring someone who looks superbly qualified doesn’t always stay that way.
There’s one more thing that many recruiters overlook. We have to be able to communicate really well with you. If we don’t understand your needs, and if we both don’t understand what is important in candidates, the exercise is doomed.
There’s more – a lot more. But we wanted to start with the core values that we will bring to the task of finding the best candidate for your opening. Learn More »
