Committed to Success

Our Process

Grant Cooper is committed to our clients’ continued success. We are not simply a search firm, but a trusted partner. Two of our managing partners lead and manage the executive search process from the initial client meeting to the search’s conclusion. They retain hands-on ownership of each search, and they are highly visible, easily reachable, and personally accountable throughout every step of the executive search process. There are no handoffs.



After gaining a comprehensive understanding of your organization’s needs and the key attributes of your ideal candidate, we create a customized profile and sourcing strategy. We then compile a tailor-made candidate pool to ensure your specific needs are met.



Our recruiters actively seek exceptional candidates through networking and extensive research. After initial screening, candidates are appraised by our managing partners who speak with you regularly to weigh emerging candidates and ensure a perfect placement.



Once a strong slate of candidates has been constructed, we facilitate interviews with each candidate. We schedule travel, compile interview materials, prepare candidates, and speak with you and the candidate to gauge impressions, determine interest, and select a finalist.



Once a finalist is identified, we work with you and the candidate to remove obstacles, assist in the negotiation process, and build consensus among stakeholders. After an offer is extended, we continue to work with you and your new placement to ensure a successful transition.

Following a search’s conclusion, we remain in close contact with candidates as they integrate into their new position. We are a business built on relationships, and our clients’ and placements’ success is critical to our success. Owing to the collaborative and personalized nature of our executive search process, we enjoy durable and longstanding relationships with our clients. 80% of our business comes from repeat engagements, and when surveyed, 98% of our clients say they would recommend our services to others.
