The Importance of “Discovery” in Executive Search: Measure twice, cut once The point I always come back to is that to manage a successful search, to find the best executives for positions, real heavy lifting must be done before candidates are interviewed. This part of the search is called “discovery,” and without it, the search can go astray and drag on. Read More

CEOs Still Leading
Of all CEO searches BSG has done within the last 5 years, 3 out of 4 CEOs continue to lead their organizations to new growth milestones
We are driven by a passion to improve the entire search process for PE-backed middle market companies.

“Other firms rush in, don’t do the deep dive to understand needs that BSG does.  PE firms value their time and BSG understands that.  They do not waste time on people that are not a fit.  BSG’s systematic interview process far exceeds what we have experienced with other search firms."

Don Charlton, Operating Partner, Argosy Capital


”We chose BSG because we felt that their approach would be more systematic and more transparent than other Executive Search Firms that we have used. Indeed, the weekly reviews which were always conducted on time and efficiently, the access to their candidate development list, and our ability to preview recorded candidate interviews before meeting with candidates all supported a very effective process.

Beyond that, BSG's ability to listen to our requirements and their ability to design a search around our specific requirements was the ultimate key to the success of our CEO search. We never felt as if we were receiving a recycled list of "the usual suspects" and we were impressed that they continued to carry out candidate development to the very end even as we began to focus on our finalist. We highly recommend them.”

David P. Bernstein, President & CEO, Trexel
