JM Search was ranked among the top 20 retained executive search firms in the United States & Americas by HSZ Media’s Executive Search Review. According to the study, the recruiting industry in the region grew 9% in 2013. JM Search CEO John Marshall was asked to comment on changes he is seeing in the executive recruiting industry. He noted that while companies may be more likely to fill junior and mid-level positions in-house, they continue to rely on executive search firms for C-Suite positions and other key roles. When asked about disruption in the industry, John said:
“Companies are more likely to engage search firms for
key roles and difficult searches for positions they need
to fill ASAP. I think the industry realignments
benefit smaller search firms and pose threats to the
larger firms that have traditionally relied on their network
and junior search consultants to execute assignments.”
