At Adams Partners, we genuinely care about every search
candidate and every client company we represent.

Our Six Key Differences

Key Difference 1

Attention & Dedication

Each search is directly managed by our founder, Jerry Adams, who will be your single point of contact until the new hire is on-boarded. As a small firm, we require less volume and limit our search load to three active assignments, resulting in more personalized attention for your search.

Key Difference 2

Extensive Experience

A nationally recognized search firm since 1995, our founder, Jerry Adams, has been in the industry for over 30 years. Every search project, no matter the scope, is staffed with a team of seasoned researchers and headed up by a former Korn Ferry national research director.

Key Difference 3

Strict Criteria

We personally interview all shortlisted candidates for every search we conduct. We will not recommend a candidate unless they meet all criteria established by the client prior to launching the search.

Key Difference 4

Wide Coverage

Our direct contact and referral sourcing will virtually guarantee that over 90% of the available candidates will know about your search. We prepare a proprietary and comprehensive database for every assignment ensuring a close to complete coverage of your market segment.

Key Difference 5

Targeted Results

On average, our clients will interview 3-4 candidates per assignment to select a successful candidate. Our average short-list timeframe is four to six weeks.

Key Difference 6

Candidate Longevity

Roughly 80% of candidates placed since 2009 are still making contributions to our client’s organizations.

Success Stories

We have been fortunate to be part of successful executive search assignments for a wide variety of companies. Architectural firms, publicly held owner/developers, sub contractors, general contractors, engineering firms, and building supply companies, just to name a few. From the field to the c-suite, the clients and candidates we have worked with have become long-term clients and friends.
