Top Business Roles & Top Talent:

The two of you should meet

Welcome to Guild Talent:

Executive Search for Operations, Strategy, GM, Finance, Partnerships and BizOps

How We Work

Retained Executive Search

Hiring senior members on to your team requires a partner who knows the space, knows the candidate pool, and knows how to properly research a candidate market and flesh out the pipeline. Executive search is a combination of the above: combining active and passive candidates with a thorough search process.

Personal Approach

We’re not a massive firm, in fact we’re quite small and quite focused. We know the roles we’re good at and we know the ones we’re not. Each project has multiple sets of eyes on it, weekly pipeline reporting, and an expectation from us that our clients are equally involved in the process.

Startups & Large Orgs

With a collective 35+ years of recruiting experience that spans stealth startups to public companies, if you need to build out your team, regardless of company size,  give us a ring. We know what we are good at and we wont take on a project we cannot fill or add value towards. 

Flexible Billing

Based on the seniority and specifics of each project we’ll tailor our billing model to what makes sense. As a small and agile team, we can be flexible with our clients. And if you prefer to test out a candidate before hiring or have a short term project, worry not – we can help.

3x3 Promise

Our goal is to move the needle. Fast. Each search is specific and we’re building a targeted candidate list for each project but that doesn’t mean it’ll take forever. Our aim is to have at least 3 candidates in process by the 3rd week.

Active & Passive Candidates

There is a great need for general business athletes in today’s market, and we’ve got a good number of them mapped out and identified. Given our network, industry connections, and research abilities, we either already know your next hire or know where to find them.

A few of our clients include:
