Excellence Meets Experience in Executive Search

Identifying and attracting the best talent requires industry expertise, impeccable judgement, and commitment to leaving no stone unturned. That’s who we are and what we do.

Only as good as your people

Identifying and attracting the right talent requires a thoughtful approach, unrivaled access to candidates, and impeccable judgment. We combine the market and leadership knowledge of our recruiters with our stringent assessment process to help you attract and hire the best of the best.

The JW Michaels difference

We pride ourselves on being the preeminent executive search firm for the most challenging searches — our long-lasting client relationships are what set us apart from other recruiting firms, and our results, driven by our process and determination to find the right fit, are ultimately what our clients value most.

We know the way

We have conversations with our clients to best determine what drives them and what keeps them up at night. It changes vastly from person to person, company to company, and industry to industry. We use this insight to put forward the best people for every job opportunity. Whether a client or a candidate, your success is ours, let’s make it happen.
