Berkhemer Clayton Inc.
Founded in 1994, Berkhemer Clayton is a senior-level retained executive search firm managing regional and national searches for corporations, higher education institutions, and non-profit organizations. As a retained search firm, we work exclusively on behalf of our client organizations to recruit the best executives in the nation for specific management positions.
Our specialty practice areas include Communications and Marketing, Finance and Investor Relations, and Board Searches. Our practice leaders are experts in executive search and have decades of personal career experience in their specialty practice areas. We understand the functional disciplines required by our practice areas and are knowledgeable about emerging market trends.
Since our specialty practices are professional functions, not industries, the result is fewer “off-limits” restrictions, giving our clients access to the widest pool of potential candidates. Our extensive personal and professional networks serve client organizations well to successfully attract and recruit the best candidates, producing seasoned executives for our clients, with faster search completion.
Our firm is structured for direct involvement by principals from start to finish for every search, and our “high-touch” client service keeps searches on track and clients always informed. Our proprietary search process, Advance 5*15*45, has on average brought forward a finalist candidate within eight weeks. We are proud that our unique approach has resulted in satisfied clients—in fact, 83% of our search engagements have come from returning clients.
As part of our operating philosophy, we value diversity and are committed to a process of inclusion for every search. Since the outset in 1994, 36% of the executives placed have been men and women of color and almost half of all placements have been women. Our focus on diversity and inclusion helps our clients succeed in a global environment.
