WHY WE’RE DIFFERENT
We’re not just order takers. We work collaboratively with you to understand your business objectives and develop candidate strategies that will enhance your organization. We’re high-touch, responsive, tenacious, and transparent. And because our fees are capped for every project, there is never a conflict of interest when we negotiate on your behalf.
We are a boutique executive search firm with a strategic mindset, national reach, and firm belief that there is no substitute for the human touch when it comes to finding top-tier leaders. With over 20 years in business, we have closed thousands of positions across multiple industries. Our clients include early stage start-ups to the Fortune 100.
Since 2000, The Pacific Firm has been ranked in the top 10 of Bay Area retained executive search firms and consistently ranked in the Top 100 women-owned businesses by the San Francisco Business Times.
We are generalists in the executive search industry with expertise in high tech, retail, consumer products, financial services recruiting. We specialize in proactively finding passive candidates using targeted research and sourcing skills, and tapping into our proprietary database of over 3 million contacts.
Our expertise also includes organizational consulting, helping companies define their long-term talent needs, and assessing and optimizing organizational performance.
Our research-driven approach exceeds that of most other firms. We don’t just rely on our network or names in our database. We make an exhaustive effort to get to know your business, where you sit in the market, and whom you compete with, and then we target those companies. This kind of deep dive provides enormous insight into your competition, benefiting the entire team, and revealing the most promising talent.
In addition, we go beyond the norm by delivering detailed transparent reporting on a weekly basis. This ensures we’re all pulling in the right direction and efficiently course correcting when necessary.
We loved working with The Pacific Firm! They were fast and fabulous in finding many qualified candidates and we often hired multiple candidates within one search. Stacie is incredibly responsive and very open to collaboration. Their research team moves very quickly to identify excellent people and gets them into to see you for interviews equally quickly so your search is always moving forward.
Their candidate write ups are always filled with the interesting tidbits that help you feel like you are getting the “inside scoop” on a candidate and give you confidence that the fit will work!
