Why Use Cross-Search
Search executives have more than 30 years experience working in the independent broker-dealer marketplace. This tenure gives us an advantage over generalist search firms in four key areas:
- Understanding needs and evaluating industry executives
Our experience owning and managing an independent broker-dealer gives our search professionals a unique foundation and understanding of broker-dealer needs, the right questions to ask and a true understanding from which to evaluate the answers. Candidates are intensively screened to ensure their experience is not only appropriate for the job but for the culture of the organization.
- Access to industry-specific candidates
We have an expansive network and close relationships with executives performing in the top 20% of their area of expertise and recruit the best talent in the industry. We are experienced in the field and personally know the executives working in it.
- Knowledge of the marketplace
In addition to our personal experience in the independent broker-dealer community, our search professionals constantly monitor industry trends and track highly competent executives. A high level of integrity, as well as trust placed in us by our clients, results in our knowledge not only of “who’s who” in the industry, but who is available, their levels of contentment, reputation, cultural fit and goals.
- Top-notch client experience
Our search professionals’ depth of relevant experience provides a solid platform for understanding our clients’ critical business needs. We have a thorough understanding of the inner workings and departments within an independent broker-dealer. Cross-Search has been highly successful in placing hundreds of outstanding individuals in a variety of positions including, but not limited to, President/CEO, Chief Marketing Officer, Director of Compliance, Head of Operations, and V.P. of Recruiting.
Our personal commitment to excellence shines through in every individual search, and we remain actively involved throughout the full cycle of the hiring process.
