About Us

Find the Perfect Fit

Perfect Fit, candidate, executive search, executive coaching, recruiting, local, national, regional

At Penfold Associates, the fit isn't perfect until both sides of the puzzle align.

Our success is built on what we are -- and what we're not:

Success, experience, CEO, executive, strategic, partners, proactive, deep diver, placement, fast

WE'RE STRATEGIC PARTNERS, NOT SHORT-TERM SPECIALISTS.

Led by a successful three-time CEO, Penfold Associates looks beyond the needs of the moment to focus on what will grow your business over time. 

WE'RE PROACTIVE, NOT REACTIVE.

Penfold Associates works with client companies, game-changing leaders, and rising stars over months and years, not days or weeks -- a paradigm shift in this short-term, reactive industry. 

WE'RE DEEP DIVERS, NOT TOP-LINERS.

Profiles and résumés aren't enough to uncover game-changing assets. We look beyond the bullet points to discover what our prospects and clients truly want and need. That's how Penfold Associates candidates are guaranteed to be in sync with your organization, objectives, team, and culture. From Day 1. 

WE'RE CANDIDATE-FOCUSED, NOT RÉSUMÉ CHURNERS.

The best thing we can do for our clients is to get to know the candidates we present. Our long-term coaching process uncovers the best and brightest early in the game.

WE'RE DEDICATED TO PLACEMENTS THAT "STICK," NOT BOUNCE.

Nearly 75% of Penfold Associates' candidates are promoted more than once in their first two years on the job.

WE'RE (VERY) FAST, NOT HAMSTRUNG BY STEEP LEARNING CURVES.

Because we're continually working with clients and prospects, we know what each of them needs, and where to find it. PENFOLD ASSOCIATES searches are completed in about 38 days, up to 25% faster than our competitors.
