Top executive search firm

M&A Executive Search is proud to be named one of America’s Best Executive Search Firms by Forbes Magazine. One of just two Minnesota-based firms to crack the top 100 on the list, M&A Executive Search is also one of just three Minnesota firms to be recognized in consecutive years. Forbes’ ranking is of firms that specialize in filling positions with salaries of at least $100,000.

Christian Kreznar writes in Forbes, “The past year forced businesses to adapt to unprecedented levels of volatility as the coronavirus pandemic changed the ways Americans work, consume, and interact. Leaders saw their roles expand to meet the challenges at hand. Not only were they tasked with guiding their companies through massive market upheavals, but they also took on a larger role as community leaders, advocating for their employees’ safety and weighing in on political and social trends. Finding the right leader has never been more important; that’s where executive search firms come in.”

M&A Executive Search moved up 63 spots on the Forbes list for 2020, ranked 93rd on the list, after being ranked 156th in 2019. Forbes partnered with Statista, a market research company, to compile the 2019 version of their yearly list of the top executive search firms. According to Forbes, seventy-six percent of hiring managers say that attracting top talent is their biggest challenge, one that costs organizations an average of 23.8 days and $4,129 per hire. Those daunting numbers are why more and more companies are enlisting in executive search firms to expedite the process and help ensure they’re making the right hire.

“I’m very proud of the work we did in 2020; it was such a strange year for everyone across the board,” said Chandler McCoy, M&A Executive Search President. “Having the right leaders was especially important during a year where there was a global pandemic, market upheaval, and a presidential election. It’s nice to be recognized, and we’re proud to have made Forbes’ list and happy that we’re in the top 100.”
