Our Approach

Our Approach: Two business professionals shaking hands in a busy office setting with multiple colleagues and laptops around them, overlaid with a translucent, bustling cityscape.

As specialists in manufacturing and aligned industries, M&A Executive Search has vast experience in the placement of executive candidates across a wide variety of industry sectors and roles.


Depth of Experience

We all know how fast the world around us is changing. Robotics, AI and IT have accelerated to a degree that has impacted every industry. Diversity and wellness are now assumed rather than hoped for. M&A Executive Search, as an independently owned firm, understands that today’s leaders must be able to adapt to an ever-changing business environment, and we know how to find the right executive to fill your company’s needs.


Flexibility with Resources

M&A Executive Search knows that culture and values alignment are critical to entrepreneurial leadership. It’s no secret that companies with leadership teams that share core values outperform their competition. We develop a deep understanding of your specific entrepreneurial style that lets us find leadership that will amplify your company’s mission and goals.


We Find the Best, Not the First

At M&A Executive Search we take pride in our success rate, which is 95%. That is 28% higher than the industry average. We achieve that level of success because we understand that our job is to find you the best candidate. That doesn’t mean it’s the first candidate, or even one of the first 10-12 candidates. It’s the best candidate. We’ll get to understand your specific work culture and find you a leader that not only is the best for your business, but fits your culture. View PDF here

Our offering provides the most cost effective, flexible, and timely approach for getting access to the knowledge and expertise that organizations need to be successful. We provide “omni-access” to experienced professionals and support clients in a customized way that fits their expertise needs – providing combinations of the following components:

  • Retained Search – when you need to hire the best talent with the best fit for the organization
  • Interim / Fractional – (Interim, interim to hire, fractional, and project) from a network of over 20,000 professionals who have “been there and done” – when you need expertise quickly and a less than permanent basis
  • Expert Project Consulting – when you have a specific initiative where expert experience is needed.
  • Executive Roundtables – when you want to leverage the expertise of non-competitive peer companies.

Our custom talent solutions enable clients to supplement their teams in whatever way makes senses and are designed so that clients have the same out of pocket cost independent of how they access resources (e.g., Interim / Project, Interim / Project and then hire, Fractional, Retained Search, Sourcing only) enabling clients to build the right solution without being concerned with cost implications.
