The alternative to Big Four global search firms
Bannerot Partners Deploys a Proven Consultative Process That Reflects the Origin of Executive Search
The executive search industry’s roots extend to the 1940’s as service offerings of premier management consulting firms. Over time, management consultants recognized the conflict of interest created by recommending an organizational structure or new business strategy, then generating search assignments for leaders to implement their recommendations. Alumni of Booz, Allen & Hamilton, seeking to mitigate the conflicts of interest, extracted search practices from BAH to form firms like Spencer Stuart and Heidrick & Struggles. Commodity-focused contingent employment agencies surfaced in the 1950’s to fill low-level or early career staffing needs focused on functional skills below $100,000 like accounting and project management.
