Why we do what we do

Distinguished Search launched February 2020. 

These are interesting times.

Now, more than ever, there is an opportunity to change recruiting.

Who we work with

On the surface our clients look very different from each other.  There are tremendous synergies.
 
  • They are passionate and on a mission.

  • They are industry disruptors.

  • They have a strong foundation and have big goals for the future.

  • Their story may not be obvious, and they need someone to help tell it in the market when attracting top talent.

  • What they are looking for in an executive is ambiguous, and a lot more than a title.

  • They’re busy and want results.
