Why Us?


Core Competencies was formed in 2010. Our team has nearly 30 years of combined experience in the recruiting industry. We've filled over 500 openings and have placed people in companies as various as Fortune 100s to early-stage Venture Capital start-ups.

Integrity and transparency are at the core of what we do. We will let you know the challenges of filling a position, what to expect and also update you on the progress of each search. We will even share market intelligence/feedback on your reputation with you in a professional, frank manner as well as make recommendations if appropriate.

At Core Competencies LLC, we use a consultative approach with new clients. Each step is very important in our process. Without certain steps, we won't be able to assist you.  Similar to the way you have processes in your organization, we work the same.  

We take pride in finding the right match for you, not only in terms of qualifications, but also in terms of cultural fit and values. We've been told many times we "dig deeper" than other firms and provide more information than other Executive Search firms. Tenacity and follow-up set us apart from other search firms.

The most important thing to us after conducting a search is your long-term satisfaction. We would rather not fill a position than place the wrong person into your organization. Our candidates, once placed, stay and excel. Many of our clients have been clients for over a decade. Many insist on using our services exclusively.
