Brackets We measure our success in terms of yours.

Since 1983, The Alexander Group has successfully completed thousands of executive searches for public, private and not-for-profit organizations. We have offices across the United States and in London. Our experience stretches to every industry, every functional area, all over the world.

About Us

Our passion—and what we have done for more than 37 years—is to recruit talent who will make a difference to our clients’ organizations, and to add value to that process with our advice, strategy and perspective.

No two clients or searches are the same, and we don’t treat them that way. We know successful hires impact all facets of a business, from revenue to strategy to brand to culture.

We don’t settle for the easy candidate; we seek out the right one—an approach we share with our sister firm, Alex & Red, founded in 2011 to complement our services with middle-market searches that call for high-impact, high-potential hires.

At The Alexander Group, we want to be your partner for the long haul. We get to know your organization’s DNA—and not only do we learn the needs of your team, we consider ourselves a part of that team.

We recruit people you want at your side in the boardroom or in the corner office. We take your success seriously, we find the right candidates, and we do it with humor and grace.

Our work style is grounded in this philosophy

Insight and expertise

We know this may be your first search, but it’s our 4,000th. Our clients benefit from our experience assessing candidates that possess the skills an organization needs—and the chemistry that brings it all together.

Beyond resumes and databases

We think outside the box and look beyond industry constraints to identify and evaluate candidates with the highest potential. We recruit leaders who will make a difference.

Open communication

At The Alexander Group, we understand that no one likes surprises. You’ll hear from us weekly throughout the life of your search.

Predictable and transparent pricing

Our flat fee is based on complexity rather than on the successful candidate’s compensation.


Just as search demands emotional intelligence, sometimes it demands levity. We love working with clients who can share a laugh.


Small by design, The Alexander Group is responsive and flexible, but never bureaucratic.


We aren’t in the business of pursuing accolades—we would rather put our clients in a position to do that. However, here are a few items about The Alexander Group worth noting:
