Executive, Senior Management and Board Members

CEO, CFO, CIO, COO, President, Board Members, VP/GM and others - Contact me directly for information on positions at this level - for confidentiality reasons, I will not post these openings on this site (well, maybe once in a blue moon). Since 2005, I've worked 200+ Mid-level to executive level management searches and have successfully completed 30-40% of them including 3 Board Members. When I started my Firm, the first placement was a CIO with a $350k+ package.  The highest total package for a C-level executive I've secured an offer was at $350k base salary with well designed 100% on target bonus and a stretch goal for 200%. The top three highest total package senior executive positions I've closed were in the $350-$700k first year package (base, bonus and equity potential).  Even if you're not on a job search and just want to have a broad conversation about local compensation - give me a call.

Contact me if you are interested in knowing more about any of these positions or could refer a colleague.
