Who We Are
EBC Associates is a WBENC-certified globally recognized executive retained search firm, delivering top talent to help you achieve a competitive advantage. With a proven track record of success, we work as an extension of your organization for the long term, delivering a tailored and custom-made human capital solution to address your specific needs.
But we’re more than a hiring partner.
We are pathfinders
Don’t know where to start or where to go from where you are? EBC Associates does. Our custom needs analysis is designed to get the ball rolling on hiring incredible talent and re-energizing recruitment efforts that have lost their momentum.
We are analysts
The truth is out there, and we aim to find it. With tailor-made needs analysis in hand, EBC Associates investigates the job market on behalf of our clients. We study your industry, gather essential information about serious contenders, corroborate their qualifications and, yes, even call references for the full scoop.
We are conversation starters
You have your short list of top-tier candidates. Now comes the hard part: narrowing it down. EBC is with you every step of the way – facilitating phone or in-person interviews, asking the tough questions, providing insights along the way and always moving things forward.
We are closers
Time to get everything in writing. EBC Associates thrives at the negotiation table by advocating for our clients and finalizing documentation. We are so confident in our recruitment capabilities, we check in with all our clients after candidates start work to assess fit and offer guidance for both parties.
We are mentors
EBC Associates serves candidates as well as employers. If your resume needs sprucing up or your job interview skills need honing, then schedule a consultation with EBC Associates.
We are game-changers
EBC Associates is not your average executive recruitment firm, and that may be our best feature. We do not deal in status quo. We do not accept ‘good enough.’ Even when recruiting feels impossible, we’re happy to take those odds.
We are EBC Associates, the leader in right-fit executive recruiting.
