A Different Kind of Search Firm

At KeyStone, we have never considered ourselves a company that simply fills jobs. We help our clients grow their businesses by finding them the right talent. This mentality drives everything we do and it’s why the KeyStone Process is the most thorough and thoughtful in the search industry.

Focused Retained Search

Great leadership is in short supply. Having a search partner that is focused on your company and your specific role is critical. This is why KeyStone will only work on a retainer basis. Doing so allows us to truly understand your business and partner with you to hire the very best fit for your future.

Other firms may claim to bring similar expertise and may promise to identify candidates faster and less expensively, via a contingency search process. When you consider the right executive for your business needs to combine strong skills, experience and alignment with your core values, the pool of fully qualified candidates becomes relatively small. Without conducting a focused and thorough retained search process, the risk of mis-hire is very high.
