The Magic of the Fit

Talent that transforms and delivers a high return on investment

Our clients appreciate that we align the DNA of an individual with the DNA of their company. This requires a fresh, organic approach each and every time—the kind of approach that can only come from giving clients our undivided attention.

That’s why we only take on three searches at a time.

It's this ability to cultivate a great match that allows us to help build high performance cultures and drive long-term growth and commercial value for our clients.

Our quick results: Our clients meet candidates within the first three weeks of a search, and many of our searches are completed in as little as two months -- faster than the industry average.

And we go one step further by including two months of Executive Onboarding for every placement – helping ensure the best possible outcome.

  • Speed and Quality

"I selected TKJ Leadership as a search partner after a thorough comparison with other firms, and I was delighted with my choice for our Head of Talent. I have high expectations and they exceeded them because they made a challenging search seem easy. A key to their approach was the extensive amount of time they invested up front to understand me and my drivers, our Firm and our culture, and the reasons and motivations for our hiring decision. Then Tammy guided me in custom questions to ask each candidate, and she observed my interviews which helped me refine my approach and confirm my selection. She redefined for me the concept of partnership."

"TKJ Leadership is our recruiter of choice. They find solutions to some of our more complex hiring needs, and their placements deliver high impact. What I most value is their approach as thoughtful partners -- we always know the search progress, what makes each candidate compelling, and what we need to explore and emphasize in each interview conversation. I have complete trust in Tammy’s instincts and counsel."

“We hire TKJ Leadership because they introduce highly qualified candidates in a quick timeframe and we always feel like true partners in their process. They take the time to understand our business so they can really pinpoint the need, and they are invaluable for broadening our talent ranks with hires from new industries. Their approach is creative and out of the box. They can meet the demands of any search we put before them, regardless of function.”

"Tammy understands me in a way I never would have expected from a search partner. She helped me hire a Head of HR years ago when I ran a media business and that hire was such a perfect fit as my business partner that I have taken her with me to several new businesses. Creating a match like this is a rare feat for a recruiter."

"TKJ Leadership exceeded our expectations, a rarity from an executive search firm. We met our first candidates in week three and selected our finalists in week six. The quality and caliber of each candidate made the vetting process positively challenging; fortunately, the TKJ team’s candid and collaborative input helped make this easier. A pleasant surprise was the unsolicited positive feedback from the candidates about their experience with TKJ -- a positive reflection on our company. I would partner with TKJ again in a heartbeat."
