An Independent Wholly Owned Subsidiary Of No One

From the beginning, we set out to create the most efficient client centric-model in the retained executive search industry. Our goal was to transition from the search industry's long-standing project-based work to our relationship based-work approach. To accomplish this, we needed to collaborate closely with clients to acquire a working knowledge of their culture, strategy, and competition, in addition to their product and service offerings. 

We're inspired by, and work with ambitious brands and believe our relationship-build approach enables us to deliver more impact, insight, and value, in less time.   

At Allen.Associates, we see ourselves as a fiercely independent privately held firm, purveyors of exceptional executive talent. We have a  broad working knowledge of the market, channels, and disciplines. Further, we've cultivated a network of high-value off-the-grid relationships with the top performers by segment. 

A Stimulus To Better 

We're a unique integrated squad of seasoned researchers and Managing Directors. Our job isn’t to just fill a management void; it’s to excite the client with new ideas, directions, possibilities, and of course high-powered leadership options. We strive to provide clarity and focus, never confusing hard work with results. 

The outcome; We have successfully conducted thousands of searches to closure, for an ever-growing client roster ranging from intriguing startups to multinationals.
