ABOUT US

A Better Way To Find Your Best EXECUTIVES

Bluewater Search was founded to combat a burgeoning frustration with traditional executive headhunting methods nationwide.

The concept was simple: Offer businesses an efficient and streamlined search process that factored in quality from the word “go” to yield fully-engaged employees and the placement of executives who seamlessly mesh with a company’s unique culture.

It worked.

A Better Way  To Retain Leadership

To date, our retention rates have exceeded 90%, thanks to an engaged and certified team of experts, and our unique approach to the search and selection process.

Our patented Job Benchmarking process first develops a profile of ideal candidates and the role they must fill. Our executive search consultants subsequently use this data to narrow an unwieldy list of prospects into a concise group of the most qualified hopefuls.

When a hiring decision is ultimately made, our search and recruitment experts assist with everything from communication to onboarding, and can even provide a new hire orientation system.

We provide customized options to meet your unique needs. Choose between our fully-managed outsourced professional search or our Talent Finder service designed to support your in-house team.

The Bluewater Philosophy

Success is a byproduct of the way leaders treat those surrounding them.

At Bluewater, we work with C-level executives who feel ethically obligated to do right by their employees. These people-centric leaders are given access to the Bluewater Way™, a set of unique offerings that covers all aspects of professional development including:

  • Training and leadership development programs
  • Executive coaching
  • Selection and succession planning
