I worked directly with KeyStone Search through a CEO transition process (as an ESOP Board Director). Not only did KeyStone help us hire a strong CEO for the company’s future, but also did an outstanding job of guiding the Board and Employee Owners through the challenges of hiring an outside CEO for the first time in its 25-year history.
Being a 100% ESOP company, cultural fit is really important, especially for leadership roles. KeyStone Search did an excellent job of understanding our culture and identifying candidates who fit. The COO we ultimately hired certainly has a great skillset, but also fits our culture extremely well.
