Our niche is helping digital media & high-growth emerging tech companies expand their businesses by securing VP through C-level talent in Sales, Marketing, PR, General Management, Operations, Bus Dev, Content, Video, Creative, E-Com & Product.
Hi-Touch Executive Search operates as a partner, not a vendor. Every engagement involves a healthy conversation about your tactical and cultural needs. And, throughout the process, we update you on the status as well as market intelligence regarding your brand. We only send you select, qualified candidates that fit your needs after a thorough vetting. At the end, we guide both you & the candidate through salary negotiations and the closing process, ensuring both sides are satisfied with the final outcome.

We don't have to be robots. However, your word selection & intonation matter.
Choice #1: That's a beautiful sweater
Choice #2: You look hot (or pretty) in that sweater
Choice #3: Dammmmmnnnn girl
Only 1 of these is appropriate & your opinion on someone's looks is irrelevant

Client: I want a rock star CMO! Jane: That's right in my wheelhouse. What's your budget? Client: $150K - $175K, all in. ...You hear that noise? That's the sound of Jane smashing her head on the desk. IF U WANT A ROCK STAR, YOU CAN'T PAY LIKE YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A LOUNGE SINGER.

What do you tell the candidate who is still in the running but is not in 1st place? The truth. Chances are the candidate is also weighing more than one job as well. So what? Still being in the running is a GOOD thing. And it ain't over 'till the fat lady sings.

If you are serious about filling a job, don't discount the other candidates you like just because you have a #1 choice. What if that #1 doesn't work out? Doesn't it make sense to have strong back-ups in the queue, vs. going back to the drawing board?#InterviewTips

"Wow. The govt sure is quick to ban e-cigs. How come they can't make decisions like that on gun control? Guns are killing more people." ...Said by my 16-year-old son last night. ...So, what the heck do I say to him on THAT?

You have taken the time to differentiate yourself from your competition, right? Do you pitch yourself as being able to listen but don't listen to what your own people say? YOU ARE FAILING. There needs to be a match in messaging if you want to hire and retain great talent.#culture

The values you have as a company should have a direct impact on how you hire. I would go as far to say that "WITHOUT knowing your collective values, you have NO culture." And, how can you hire and RETAIN your talent if you don't have a definable culture and value system? #culture
