Forbes Names Pearson Partners International One of America’s Best Executive Search Firms
Pearson Partners International is thrilled to announce its recognition for the third time by Forbes as one of America’s Best Executive Search Firms.
In today’s complex economic and geopolitical climate, C-suite executives face myriad challenges in the workplace, including employee burnout and stress, increased focus on diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, the drive for sustainable business practices and increased workplace transparency. A recent Deloitte global survey revealed that nearly 70 percent of C-suite executives are considering leaving their positions in pursuit of those that better support their well-being.
Amidst this potentially significant job turnover, Forbes has collaborated with market research company Statista to identify America’s Best Executive Search Firms.
Pearson Partners International has earned this prestigious accolade three times in the seven years Forbes has compiled the list, including the inaugural year in 2017, again in 2018 and for a third time in 2023.
We are honored to be recognized again by Forbes as one of America’s Best Executive Search Firms. This acknowledgment is a testament to our commitment to exceptional service and our clients’ trust. – Keith Pearson, Chairman & CEO
Keith Pearson, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Pearson Partners International, said, “We congratulate our search industry colleagues—especially our fellow IIC Partners firms sharing this prestigious recognition: Dinte Executive Search in Washington, Ellig Group in New York; Furst Group in Chicago and Salveson Stetson Group in Philadelphia.”
Renee Arrington, Pearson Partners International President & COO, added, “We are delighted to be in such esteemed company. Our fellow honorees embody our core values of quality and integrity. It is especially a privilege to work with and collaborate alongside our U.S.-based IIC Partners firm leaders joining us on this year’s Forbes list—Samuel Dinte, Janice Ellig, Bob Clarke, Sherrie Barch, Sally Stetson, Keith Pearson and our team at Pearson Partners International.”
Partnering with Forbes, Statista surveyed 5,200 external recruiters, HR leaders, internal hiring managers and candidates to solicit their recommendations and assessments of executive recruiting firms with whom they had recently worked. The firms that received the highest scores made it onto the list of the top 150 companies specializing in filling positions with salaries of at least $100,000.
