With deep roots and connections to executives in HR (we have worked on CHRO executive searches for many major and emerging companies) and many other disciplines, both globally and in Silicon Valley, we can usually short-list candidates immediately upon kickoff. We know the trendsetters, rising stars, senior statesmen, MBA’s with non-traditional backgrounds, non-traditional innovators and everybody in-between. We build long-term relationships with our candidates. The expertise of our executive recruiters ranges from ongoing confidential, advisory conversations with organizational leaders, to conducting backdoor reference checks that other firms cannot.
At Frederickson Partners, we strongly believe that different viewpoints create the most innovation and creativity amongst a strong workforce. To us, diversity, equity and inclusion is not a one-off initiative but a frame-of-mind. Throughout the search process, whether focused on D&I or other leadership roles, we cast the widest net to ensure that your candidate slate includes executives with different backgrounds, experiences, cultures, and beliefs.
“I am extremely happy with the search process. At the start, I set out a timeline and that's how the search went. The candidate we hired was one of the first you brought into the process. The team understood what Tripwire needed and aligned candidates accordingly. The assessments of what we needed were also very good. I really have no feedback on improvements!”

The cost of hiring the wrong person is immense. Yet, whether conducting a CEO, CFO or CHRO executive search or recruiting another VP or senior leader, many companies don’t know how to properly assess what they need in an executive. We use behavioral-based interviews to uncover intrinsic traits, and top-grading methodology to produce a comprehensive picture of each candidate’s personality, strengths and weaknesses and work history.
With our other best practices, these assessment activities help our executive recruiters target leaders and innovators who are the most qualified and offer the ideal fit for a client.
Our unique 21-point assessment evaluates:
Clients deserve transparency, control and predictability in the executive search process. We deliver it with interactive weekly search reports, timely benchmark data, compensation market data for salary/benefit negotiations, and detailed final assessments that provide insight into the entire search process.
We’re not just about the data. Relationships matter. Throughout the search process, we maintain ongoing dialogue and feedback with clients to address questions and issues. Open communication allows searches to move briskly and ensures that selected candidates are aligned with company needs.
We also provide clients with a tool for tracking candidates’ reactions during interviews and for ranking candidates post-interview. We help clients build and pre-shop offers to candidates, and aggressively compete to win during multiple-offer situations.
In today’s hot market for strategic executives, candidates often get multiple offers and negotiations can take time.
Because we talk continuously to many candidates, our executive recruiters have access to the most up-to-date information on compensation packages, both total cash and equity trends, enabling you to stay ahead of your competition in wooing your chosen candidate. We then pre-socialize your offer with the candidate so that once you extend the formal offer, you know it will be accepted on the spot.
Integrating a new leader onto the executive team always comes with its challenges. We partner with you to develop a framework for the first day, week, and month, ensuring your new executive is optimally set up for success. For first-time C-level leaders, we also offer a mentorship opportunity with a long-time trendsetter in the space, aligning for industry knowledge and functional expertise.
“The team has been fantastic. It went really swimmingly. Some areas to highlight were the reporting process, status updating; and the documentation you provided, among the best I’ve seen. It instilled confidence in me that the process was proceeding even if we weren’t in touch for a couple of days. The quality and caliber of candidates you brought to the table were extremely high…Really positive experience.”
