In today's rapidly changing climate, high-caliber executives and senior managers are scarce resources. When an organization needs to hire externally, often in response to rapid changes in market dynamics, retained executive search is the most effective method.
Our executive searches are multi-faceted, encompassing traditional research, data mining, Internet sourcing, referrals and direct contacts. High-quality screening and evaluation processes, combined with the experience and judgment of our consultants, are the essential safeguards that protect confidentiality and yield the most successful candidates.
We use technology to extend and improve the reach of Horton International. With our dedicated intranet and supporting IT systems, we manage multi-country and global searches efficiently and effectively.

In the context of recruiting, a retained search is comparable to choosing a business advisor to resolve a performance issue or deliver a particular solution. Organizations in a wide range of sectors retain Horton International to identify highly qualified candidates for specific senior-level positions. Our retained search service guarantees the quality and performance of a candidate.
In a contingency search, a recruiting firm is typically used to fill an entry- to mid-level position. The firm is paid only if and when they provide a candidate who fills a position. For this reason, contingency firms tend to quickly provide numerous resumes for a given position. While contingency searches can yield appropriate candidates, the results are unpredictable and inconsistent.
Horton International identifies prospective candidates using a proprietary methodology that has proven successful across industries and markets. We personally contact each identified candidate in confidence to determine their interest in, and qualifications for, a particular position. Most candidates view these exchanges as constructive and useful dialogues, which builds interest and commitment as the assignment progresses. We then work closely with our clients and prospective candidates to ensure that the desired end result is achieved.
We undertake extensive research to provide an array of highly qualified candidates. Moreover, we access a universe of talent that is not actively seeking new positions-which is not accessible via conventional recruiting methods.
Since our fee is not contingent upon the hiring of a specific individual, we provide objective, unbiased advice on both internal and external candidates
By providing only the most qualified candidates, and by offering informed assessments of those candidates, we ensure that your time and attention are not diverted from other responsibilities.
