And we have provided services to numerous larger public and private companies in need of corporate finance talent in treasury, strategy & corporate development and financial planning & analysis.

As a Houston-based executive search firm, our primary market is Texas, but our relationships stretch across the country. We've run into a lot of people while providing search services for over 30 years. In that period, we have completed assignments in Houston, Dallas, Austin, New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, St. Louis, Denver, Washington D.C., Atlanta, New Orleans, Tulsa, Oklahoma City and Minneapolis. And we’ve completed a number of assignments in parts of the country few have ever traveled. Search execution is all about process and after 30+ years of refinement our process works in any locale.

Execution Finance Roles

 

In these same markets and in the hedge fund, investment management and institutional investor communities, we have completed a multitude of Vice President, Associate and Analyst searches.

 

Corporate Leadership Roles
