High performing leaders to elevate

your company’s success

We find C-level executives, senior management and professionals across accounting, finance and operations management. We guide the search journey to place change-making leaders who will drive new results.

A strong new CEO or other business executive holds powerful keys to expand profits, grow production, modernize reporting systems, elevate service offerings or fend off fiercely competitive rivals. When well aligned to the organization, they deliver new  business performance through process improvements, organic growth, or mergers and acquisitions.

Executive and management transitions call for an intensive journey. Townsend Search Group starts this journey with research that builds deep understanding and trust. It finishes after a leader is in place and using his or her experience, competencies and mindset to lead your team, solve challenges and raise your company’s game.  

We bridge the gap so that leader transitions become watershed moments. Turnarounds are managed. Organizations are resurrected. Quality and process improvements bring new efficiency. Executive searches answered with exceptional people can bring order in chaos and help well-performing companies excel in their industries. 

Whatever your leadership gap, we bring talented candidates who are energized by your opportunity and ready for the complexities they’ll face.
