Forbes names Herd Freed Hartz top Northwest executive search firm (2018)

Herd Freed Hartz is honored to have been named by Forbes as the top executive search firm based in the Northwest in 2018.   The firm was named #39 globally and represents a back-to-back win after also earning this honor in 2017.  “With our executive search focus in the Northwest since 2001 working with 250+ clients, we are proud to have been awarded this from Forbes.  We have an amazing team and love helping our clients find the executive talent that helps them win”, Kevin Hartz, Managing Partner and Co-Founder.

Forbes has teamed up with market research company Statista to answer that very question by producing, for the second year, our annual ranking of America’s best recruiting firms. The list is divided into two categories: one for the top 250 executive search firms specialized in filling positions with salaries of at least $100,000 and another for the top 250 professional search firms focused on placing positions with salaries of less than $100,000.

To determine the best recruiting firms, Statista surveyed 30,000 recruiters and 4,500 job candidates and human resources managers who had worked with recruitment agencies over the last three years. Respondents were asked to nominate up to 10 recruiting firms in the executive and professional search categories. Firms could not nominate themselves; last year’s findings were considered. More than 14,500 nominations were collected, and firms with the most recommendations ranked highest.  For the full Forbes article
