Acertitude Reimagines Strategic Role of Executive Recruitment at Highest Levels

New Venture’s Client-inspired Talent Solutions Focus on Client Satisfaction and ROI to Super-charge Recruitment of C-suite and Senior Executive Leadership

New York, NY, June16, 2015 –Acertitude, a top-tier executive search firm and talent consultancy launched today, providing a striking alternative to standard industry recruitment models. The new firm serves the c-level and senior executive market with a strategicmethodologyfocusedonoriginal, tailored research, high-touch service, data-driven selection processes, and an expanded view to integration. Acertitude also replaces traditional consultant compensation models with a unique system that tiesto the long-term goals and satisfaction of clients.

“Acertitude’s promise to unleash the human potential of today’s leading organizations is inspired by our team’s unwavering commitment to the sustainable success of our clients,” shares Kevin O’Neill, Co-Founder and Managing Partner. “Today’s data-driven methods become extremely powerful business drivers when paired with a deep understanding of the nuances that impact a client’s talent needs.”

Acertitude was created by innovative and experienced retained search professionals who are responding to the call of dissatisfied clients: In a survey of 500 senior managers who paid for retained searches, an alarming 79% report that their engagement did not result in the hiring of an “A Player.” The Acertitude team delvedinto industry challenges over the past two years to keenly understand the disruption needed to address the risk that leaders face in outside hiring and executive performance. From these findings, the team built a culture and delivery systemdesigned to drive exceptional search performance and significantly increase the success rate of its clients’ hiring decisions.

“The traditional approach to executive search is transactional, and too often begins by pulling from an existing inventory of candidates,” said Rick DeRose, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Acertitude. “We’ve built a fundamentally different culture around behaviors and practices that put our clients’ experience at the center, beginning with an in-depth analysis of their needs, original research, and custom talent mapping.”

Acertitude’s industry insight and expertiseunites the collective experience of its founders along with a team of partners and principals, many of whom have led human resources and recruitment efforts from within the C-suite of various global organizations. This range of experience is supported by best-in-class technologies and methodologies that more than triple high-performer hiring rates.

The new executive search firm and talent consultancy focuses on personal and proven search methods, fueled by extensive research, to ensure the ideal cultural fit. Acertitude reaffirms the commitment of its founders to the aspects of executive search that clients value most:

  • Take the time to understand client aspirations
  • Put clients’ interests first
  • Imagine new ways of doing things and execute on them
  • Act with integrity and earn trust
  • Commit to open, clear, and objective communication
  • Act as catalysts for positive transformations
