Winning leadership teams require innovative thinking to drive the kind of strategies and initiatives that enable market dominance. Do you have the people to make it happen?

Our way is to get to the “why” before worrying about “who” the search will turn up. We work with our clients to find the answers to questions like:

  1. Do current talent strategies and plans support long-term growth in this changing environment?
  2. As the business evolves, what leadership capabilities and skills will it need to execute the strategy?
  3. Which roles drive the most value now and in the future?

Hawthorne  collaborates with our clients to answer questions such as these in order to achieve the greatest impact. We source and assess the best candidates in terms of leadership capability, technical expertise, motivation and, perhaps most critically, cultural fit. Our highly interactive and consultative approach leads to optimal results.

We’re also able to get access to candidate’s others might not. Our approach nearly eliminates “off limits” restrictions. You get unparalleled access to the world’s most exceptional talent.
