    – Over 90% of TSG’s clients retain us as their trusted advisor to deliver top specialized talent for key organizational positions. Board, C level, Divisional President, General Manager, Vice President and Director level positions are typically retained engagements. Additionally, many TSG clients retain us for highly competitive, specialized or sensitive time-to-fill positions.


    – At TSG, we customize our retainer engagements terms and conditions to meet our client’s needs. One recent new client had short-term budget constraints that required flexibility on TSG’s part and we gladly accommodated their needs to deliver an outstanding executive talent under budget and ahead of their projected timeline.


    – TSG clients realize that having a successful organization is critical from ‘top to bottom’ and every employee contributes to the success of their organization. In cases where TSG clients have lower level needs and we have workload bandwidth, we gladly support and customize solutions to assist them with their entire organization. At TSG, we ensure that talent levels, attributes and cultural fit permeate the entire organization.


    – An increasing trend amongst TSG clients is standardization of their External Talent Acquisition process and accountability to us. TSG collaboratively and effectively works with clients to develop a management system, recruitment & on-boarding process and fee schedule that meets or exceeds our client’s requirements. TSG executive clients realize the criticality of focusing on optimizing their day-to-day business performance and strategy while relying on us to deliver top talent for sustained performance.


“I’ve worked with TSG Principal’s for over 8 years and we have consistently been able to work out an Agreement that made sense for both parties. We’ve utilized TSG Principal’s for retained, modified retainer and exclusive contingency for various positions we required external assistance.

In particular, I have always appreciated their transparency and flexibility in working with me, my internal recruiting team and my organization to insure we had an excellent process, quick delivery of top talent and competitive terms and fees.”
