In a Global Executive Search

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.

That’s why we say Speed Counts.

But it’s not just speed. Hiring someone who looks superbly qualified doesn’t always stay that way.

So Fit Counts as well, maybe even more.

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.

So, yes, Communication Counts.

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 »
