Forbes just released their 2019 list of best executive recruiting firms specializing in filling positions with annual salaries of at least $100,000.  Kirby Partners proudly announces that we’ve earned a spot on the list for the 3rd consecutive year.

Judy Kirby, President of Kirby Partners said “It is truly an honor to be recognized on the Forbes 2019 list of America’s Best Search firms in the Country.  I’m particularly proud of this achievement knowing how difficult it is for a small, boutique executive search firm to earn a spot on the list among much larger firms that work across many verticals.  The fact that we earned a spot on this list means that our clients nominated and championed us, which is extremely gratifying.  We are deeply committed to client satisfaction and have focused on building long-term relationships in our 30 years in the executive search industry; our customer-centric approach has helped us earn recognition as one of nation’s best”.

Best Executive Recruiting Firm Methodology

Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to determine who the top executive search firms in the country and developed their annual ranking of America’s best recruiting firms. The list is divided into two categories: one for the top 200 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.  (Kirby Partners earned a spot on the list of firms specialized in filling positions with salaries of at least $100,000.)

To determine the list, Statista surveyed 25,000 recruiters and 5,000 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 17,000 nominations were collected, and firms with the most recommendations ranked highest.
