Executive Search for Private Companies

The Right Leadership for Private Companies

As a private company, you have a personality and culture all your own; The right executive for your company is different than those in public companies, other private companies or even your closest competitors.

At KeyStone we respect these differences in each and every client we serve. Our process incorporates your unique culture and business model to ensure you are getting the right leader for your future.

Since our founding, we have provided high-end executive search services to private companies–in fact, it’s all we do.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Our company used KeyStone to fill two high level positions based on their focus on culture. We wanted to retain our family business feel, bring in new talent, preserve our culture and avoid turnover. We couldn’t afford a mis-hire. The KeyStone crew delivered two home runs. We got the talent we need, enhanced our culture and have not lost a single employee. I would highly recommend KeyStone Search.”

Paul Cullen
CEO, Dedicated Networks

I’ve worked with KeyStone both as a candidate and to hire a critical VP role for our team. What impresses me most is KeyStone’s ability to gain a deep understanding of both our business and our culture, and apply those to finding the best fit. If you need to add a key member to your leadership team, there is no better than KeyStone Search.”
