This year marks our 45th anniversary as one of the Midwest’s oldest and most well-respected Retained Executive Search firms. Much of our success and staying power has come as a result of sticking to the industries we know best:
Manufacturing, Distribution, Logistics, Technical Services, Not-for-Profit/Foundation, Corporate Governance
The past decade has been economically challenging for Jonas, Walters & Associates, as well as many of our client partners. However, if the current uptick in our search activity is any indication of the state of the economy, we are witnessing an amazing rebound in our niche business segments. To keep pace, we added two new partners to our roster, increasing our national reach to clients in 27 states. Our international reach includes successful work in Western Europe and Latin America.
This past year served to reinforce an important fact in the executive search industry: it is the small (one to five million dollars in annual revenues), single office search firms that are conducting well over 50% of the search assignments in the United States. We are gratified that corporate America, including Fortune 500 companies, continue to show a preference for partnering with a “boutique” executive search firm like Jonas, Walters & Associates, because they know we have a working knowledge of their industry, including any specific characteristics and nuances that apply.
The compensation levels of candidates placed by Jonas, Walters & Associates have averaged over $100,000, ranging up to $400,000 and more. However, we accept search assignments for every client position that is vital to the sustained success of your enterprise. Our fees are not based on the hired candidate’s salary; instead, we collaborate with our clients to arrive at a mutually agreed-upon flat fee plus out-of-pocket expenses arrangement.
We continue to work in every major sector with all functional areas. Perhaps, more importantly, all but a few of our searches are repeat engagements for clients who have made us a part of their team.
