MEG WHITMAN | CEO & AMBASSADOR
Our practice is focused on delivering results. As a boutique firm, we simply cannot disappoint our clients, and we don’t. We are in the business of delighting our clients and developing long term relationships where we become a truly trusted partner and advisor who delivers time and time again.
Because we take on a limited number of searches each year, we can apply more focus, time, effort, and attention on recruiting the very best market leaders for our clients who hire us for critical search after critical search all over the world. The firm is not hampered by the large search firm “off-limits” lists which constrain many firms, and we believe our completion rate, well in excess of 98% is among the industry’s highest.
During the candidate development process, Goodwin Executive Search will prepare status reports; resume summaries and assessment comments to confirm that the process is tracking as we each desire. Subsequent to our interviews, we will generate and forward to you a written candidate report including details on compensation, background, assessment, and relevance to the required specifications. As individuals move through the process, we will work closely with your office to aid in candidate scheduling, we will also coordinate timely candidate feedback, conduct thorough reference checks and assist with negotiations for the finalist candidates.
Our goal is to successfully complete each of our searches within 100 days. Below is a timeline provided as a quick overview of the joint deliverables we will need to accomplish in order to meet our mutual goal. This timeline was created as a general guide to distinguish the steps required to complete this project within 100 days. Of course, there can be unforeseen obstacles that cause us to lose time. However, we are committed to work within this timeframe and appreciate our clients’ commitment to do the same.
