Boston HR Executive Search
and Advisory



First in HR Executive Search Firms: Boston

Boston is among one of the nation’s strongest economies with many fast-growing companies, particularly in education, research, and medicine, as well as a highly educated and talented workforce from the area’s extremely renowned colleges and universities. As more organizations move their headquarters to Boston, the city’s reputation as a global business center grows. For executive search firms Boston’s market includes many companies seeking People/HR leadership to help them rapidly grow and build a winning workplace culture.

Major companies include General Electric, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Vertex Pharmaceuticals, Staples, Dunkin’ Brands, Gillette, Iron Mountain, and Wayfair, many of them among our clients. Top start-ups to watch include Corvus Insurance, Hometap, Hopjump, mabl, Marigold Health, Neural Magic, Paperless Parts, and Starburst Data. Big businesses, start-ups, and human resources executives are attracted to Boston’s easily livable and walkable communities, convenient public transportation, world-class doctors and hospitals, top-rated education system and beautiful, distinct four seasons. The Greater Boston metro area consists of Boston, Cambridge, Lowell, Providence, Quincy, and Worcester; each with a culture and feel all its own. Affectionately dubbed ‘bean town’, Boston’s city proper spans almost 50 square miles.
