Edelman & Associates is a boutique executive search firm known for our deep connections in the most desirable talent pools. While, we are best known among alumni of MIT and Harvard, we have also developed a strong network spanning the other Ivy-League schools, the world’s top colleges and universities, and the leading engineering and business schools.
Our research skills are exceptional and have enabled us to succeed in completing a wide range of challenging assignments across industries. Today, our clients include some of the world’s most successful hedge funds, electronic trading firms, software and other technology-based companies, and consulting firms.
Beyond our networks and research skills, our success is driven by our insight into organizational culture, understanding of complex technology, and ability to relate to candidates at the pinnacle of their fields. Top performers connect with us, or accept our calls, because:
• we were referred by others whose opinions they value,
• they share an academic affiliation or interest,
• or, they appreciate the thoughtfulness of our approach.
Our reputation for excellence is also built on our discretion, professional ethics, and high standards of quality.
As a boutique firm, we treat each assignment with care using a custom-tailored process. Almost no sources of talent are “off-limits” to us. We can meet your needs with energy, speed, and agility.
