Your Hires Matter

Hiring the wrong leader is costly

Your organization shouldn’t struggle to find the right executive. You need an experienced executive search partner. That’s where Kirby Partners can help.

Strategic hiring

Hire an executive who will "wow" your CEO

There’s a lot at stake when you need to hire an IT, cybersecurity, or healthcare executive.

You can’t afford to have the position vacant for long, but you also have to hire the right person.

Relying on 35 years of experience, thousands of connections, and extensive technology expertise, we make hiring exceptional executives easy.

You’ll have a trusted expert that works as an extension of your team.

Unexpected leadership vacancy?

We can provide an interim leader to bridge the gap.

Deep Connections

Our recruiting specialty is senior healthcare, technology, and cybersecurity roles. We personally know the most accomplished executives.


Innovative DEI Approach

We are a proud woman-owned business. We’ve developed a DEI recruiting plan that ensures an inclusive candidate pool and reduces bias in hiring.


Hands-On Approach

Senior partners will lead your executive search (larger firms tend to assign most of their searches to junior associates).


Marketing Expertise

Our best-in-class marketing strategies and graphic design effectively “sell” your open position to prospective candidates.


Greater Candidate Access

As a boutique firm, we have fewer “off-limits” candidates; larger firms have lengthy “hands-off” lists, impacting your access to top candidates.


No Added Fees

We understand the need to be fiscally conservative. Unlike our competitors, we don’t charge administrative fees, resulting in 10-15% cost savings.

Search Process

An efficient and transparent executive search process

Step 1

Define the background of your ideal leader

We help you determine the profile of your optimal candidate and achieve stakeholder alignment on search requirements.

Craft a compelling story about your opportunity

We create marketing materials selling your organization, the position, and the community in a way that captures the attention of prospective candidates.

Extensively market your open position

We'll directly contact select candidates in our database. We'll also promote your position through multiple channels to ensure a broad reach.

Step 4

Thoroughly screen potential candidates

Candidates are taken through multiple rounds of interviews to gauge their expertise. We also conduct detailed reference checks to minimize your risk.

Step 5

Bring you the best candidates to interview (typically within about 30 business days)
