That’s far easier to do when software intuitively supports the search and consulting process and the team leading it. When you’ve spent nearly three full decades in the business of retained executive search, says Rob Andrews, Chairman & CEO of Allen Austin – with retained executive search consultants working from offices in the United States, Europe and Asia – you naturally form opinions based on the experiences of your clients. And if clients’ best interests aren’t being well served, Andrews isn’t the type to stand around and let that happen. It’s that commitment, and a belief that the interests of clients of older, larger and better-known executive search firms weren’t consistently being served that led Andrews to leave one search firm and create his own unique brand of retained executive search and leadership consulting. Andrews’ guiding lights were his beliefs that clients could be served best with a more deliberate search process focused on finding the kind of executive fit that would increase tenure and fast-track exceptional performance in any leadership role. Today, Allen Austin believes it has created one of the most disciplined and most comprehensive search methodologies in the business. This, Andrews says, offers the focus as well as the flexibility to meet clients’ needs and expectations. Rob Andrews Chairman & CEO The results, says this man focused on statistics and performance, can be summed up in just one measure of his firm’s commitment: since the founding of the firm, Andrews says, the firm has never once abandoned an unfinished search assignment. The firm is obsessed with performance metrics. Andrews is his firm’s own toughest critic, pushing it to connect exceptional leaders with the right roles and into cultures they can excel in over the long-term. www.allenaustinsearch.com It’s a track record, he adds, that has enabled the firm’s growth internationally and also into other executive advisory services, including board services, leadership advisory, and related human capital disciplines. “We’re in the relationship business, not the transaction business,” -4-
