ivy’s Organizational Services Include:

Executive Search

ivy Executive search leverages our combined background at larger, national firms by applying best practices and process with every search. Our entrepreneurial experience allows us to infuse innovation, creativity and agility into everything we do, ensuring the best of both worlds.

Professional Search

Who says that the quality of Executive search only belongs to the C-suite? ivy belives that emerging leadership and individual contributor roles deserve the same sort of rigour and attention that Executive search demands so you won’t find us splitting the difference.
