Our Approach

Highly Collaborative.  Fully Transparent.  Focused.

Garrett Search Partners’ success is based on leveraging our network and industry expertise, the collection and application of timely data, and speed.  We bring together fresh research, precise cold calling into company targets, and methodical candidate selection to quickly deliver ideal talent to your organization.

Design Search Strategy

We utilize our collective past search experience, but we also deliver fresh research, derived from cold calling into company targets.  During our initial client consultation, we will work together to identify and prioritize your hiring objectives.  Based on these discussions, we write a position description and identify target companies.


Research – Collecting Fresh Data

We utilize best in class methodology by bringing together exceptional candidates and data, tailored to each client’s needs. We draw on our collective past search experience, but we also deliver fresh research for every search because it’s absolutely critical to the success of the search.

We then begin candidate identification, through cold calling into our target companies, social media and networking sites and cull our pool of potential candidates.  We start by qualifying and evaluating candidates through extensive phone interviews, and once we have arrived at the short list, we then begin in-depth, personal interviews and extensive reference checks.

21 Day Assessment

By Day 21, we check in with you to make sure we are on the right path and the team is aligned. We want to make sure our calibration candidates hit the target and we’re all working in lockstep together.

Presentation of Candidate Short List

Our commitment is to not only deliver a slate of candidates all of which constitute an excellent match for the assignment, but also provide relevant market intelligence and insight.   Research tells us behavioral interviews ….  we tailor specific questions to interview against competency gaps

Onboarding & Retention

Garrett Search Partners archives all data for every search, so as your organization grows, we are able to launch additional search assignments with accelerated momentum. As a client, you will receive real time status reports on our progress along with market intelligence.

We partner with our clients through every step in the search life cycle and our process is meticulous.

We get the job done right the first time, which is why every search is guaranteed for one year. If a candidate we have placed does not, for any reason, remain with your firm for a one year period we will conduct the assignment again, billing only for expenses. Because we’re always looking for ways to improve performance, we value the input we receive through our Client survey at the conclusion of the search.

Our repeat and referral business is a testament to our work.

Our Clients are truly business partners and through those close relationships, we consistently demonstrate our unwavering commitment to integrity and trust, keeping our premier goal in mind, our Clients’ long term success.

We aspire to be the most professional search consultants in our industry and we adhere to our industry’s Candidate’s and Client’s Guidelines and Code of Ethics as established by the Association of Executive Search Consultants (AESC).

We also have relationships with a network of established search firms around the globe.  These are trusted firms, known and respected in their specialized areas for their integrity and outstanding performance. Please let us know if we can provide referrals or recommendations for your search needs outside of our practice groups and/or outside of North America.
