About Ventura Partners
Our managing partners spent over 100+ years combined working inside the world’s largest executive search firms. When we started, listening to clients describe their problems and their aspirations was the foundation of our work. We were taught to listen, to probe, to help define, and to enlighten, creating a pathway with our experience and guiding our clients as we accessed the market for world-class talent on their behalf. Solving those problems and helping achieve those aspirations by recruiting the best of the best for our clients was our mission – our singular focus – and the basis of our partnership with those we served.
In the last 20 years, executive search firms, in the rush to drive revenue, have defaulted on the interest of partnership. These arms-length service providers, their senior consultants little more than salespeople, pitch a grab bag of “solutions” designed to solve your problems before you can even describe them. Small and mid-size companies get less and less attention as senior consultants, in the rush to sell bigger and bigger deals, hand off critical projects to junior consultants. Without the benefit of experience and insight, searches take longer and come to disappointing ends.
At Ventura Partners, we have a passion for our work. We listen, we probe, we help you define your needs and goals, and we do our best to enlighten and consult, sharing our knowledge and guiding you every step of the way as we access the market for world-class talent. We are a highly specialized firm, offering a small number of targeted services into a specific clientele. When we enter into a relationship, we are fully committed and you have our full attention. We are your partners, and you are our purpose.
