MANAGEMENT CONSULTING CASE STORY

Summit Executive Resources

Recent 12-Month Results

Summit Executive Resources came to us with an idea. They wanted to reinvent executive search and introduce a new service to high-level executives and companies in search of top executive talent. Over the past few years, we’ve helped them position, brand, and promote their firm, raising it from obscurity to national prominence.

Reaching Peak Exposure

Summit’s innovative business model turns retained search on its head. The firm represents and advises C-level executives directly, much like a high-end sports agent. But they first had to introduce their revolutionary new model to marketplace.

Hinge’s Visible Firm program allowed Summit to quickly build its reputation and reach key audiences, from private equity firms and boards of directors to executive search committees and top executives, themselves. The program has been a terrific success, achieving visibility across multiple fronts, including extensive guest publishing opportunities, speaking engagements, online search, and more.

“The exposure allowed us to gain new clients, greater access to the PE community, and a variety of new strategic relationships,” says Henderson. Today, we continue to uncover new places to tell Summit’s story and deliver growth.

Since launching its executive agent model...

Summit Executive Resources has experienced phenomenal success, placing top C-level executives in major technology firms across the nation and in India.

The average time to placement is three months — a fraction of the time
it takes to place an executive through traditional retained search.

“We would not be here today, pioneering this new business, without having that strategy right. We’ve seen a dramatic growth in our business.”

—Melissa Henderson, Summit Executive Resources
