Corporate Meeting


At Croghan & Associates, we assess your needs and define the appropriate search strategy. This process is one of the most important tasks in the executive search process. Our due diligence and needs assessment are detailed and thorough. We meet with senior management and relevant individuals to obtain the necessary information to understand your organization's objectives, business strategy, and corporate culture. Our recruitment strategy provides the foundation for targeting specific industry segments and identifying the top talent in your sector.

Candidate Identification Process

Once we have an agreed-upon search strategy, we turn to our own resource bank of executives in our proprietary database while researching the executives from our target companies. In addition, we will call upon our executive contacts to ask for their input on candidate suggestions. Passive candidates make for the best and most qualified people, and referrals from our network are important to the search process, while ensuring the utmost in client confidentiality for both the client and candidate.

Draft List and Final Document

Once we identify ideal candidates, we meet with them for an extensive interview where they are further assessed. Candidates are evaluated for their ability, leadership style, and potential fit for your organization. The long list is a comprehensive industry document highlighting the potential individuals for the position. Once the profiles have been presented to you, a select group of agreed-upon candidates will make up the short list, and a report will be prepared with detailed bios and resumes for the short-listed candidates. This document provides supporting evidence and detailed insight into their motivation for seeking a new opportunity.

Candidate Selection and Presentation of Offer

We help you work through the decision-making process, with the final decision, of course, being up to you. Once the finalist candidate has been selected, we will assist in formulating a letter of offer, presenting it to the candidate, and negotiating its acceptance. In this phase, comprehensive reference checks and due diligence are performed.

Follow Up

Throughout the candidate's first year of employment, Croghan & Associates keeps in close communication with the candidate to ensure they are transitioning with ease. We remain a resource and confidant for your new employee, and we will assist in answering any of their questions or concerns while they adjust to their new role within the firm.
