ON PARTNERS NAMED A CYBER TECHNOLOGY TOP 40 EXECUTIVE SEARCH FIRM
ON Partners named on Hunt Scanlon’s new roundup of the 40 most prominent executive search firms in cyber technology
December 2020 – ON Partners, the experience-driven retained executive search firm, is proud to be named to the Cyber Technology Top 40 list announced by market research firm Hunt Scanlon. The list encompasses the leading executive search firms dedicated to cybersecurity and technology – a nod to the ever-expanding convergence of web, cloud, social and mobile technologies.
ON Partners’ executive search consultants Marc Gasperino and Seth Harris were also featured in Hunt Scanlon’s Cyber Technology Recruiting Special Issue with the following 2020 insights:
“We’re seeing clients from almost every market emphasize the enhancement of their digital platforms,” said Marc Gasperino, leader of the digital practice at ON Partners. “In many cases, digital business models are carrying organizations right now. Companies that underinvested in digital platforms are starting to chase lost revenues that mean more now than before and while hiring has been frozen or slowed down in other functions, digital product, engineering, data/analytics, user experience, and cybersecurity are being prioritized. Unfortunately, since many of these companies are going through difficult financial times, they are struggling to meet the compensation requirements of the talent they need.”
“Companies that have already invested and are winning the digital business wars are trying to take advantage of recruiting talent from suffering markets like travel, hospitality and retail,” Mr. Gasperino said. “They are also driving initiatives to expedite the long process of hiring and developing diverse leadership within technology functions.” ON Partners has been hired to drive several ‘diverse only’ engagements for global market leaders since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I’m aligned with my clients who see COVID-19 as a temporary setback but one that has allowed them to reassess strategy, go-to-market, and product-market mix, among other things,” said Seth Harris, a partner with ON Partners. “Over the past 12 months the reliance on strong financial acumen (CFOs), product/solution rationalization or development (chief product officers), and revenue generation (CRO) will continue to be in demand. That is followed by CHROs who bring vision and guidance to the C-suite in navigating the needs of the existing workforce in light of COVID and beyond, hiring top talent whether pre-identified via a formal search or not, and the creation of a platform that assess talent demand shifts, best-in-class training, and a better level of engagement with the workforce.”
The Cyber Technology Top 40 ranking is the latest of several accolades ON Partners has received in 2020. Recently, Inc. magazine revealed that ON Partners is No. 3212 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This is the seventh time ON Partners has been ranked on the Inc. 5000 list. Once again ON Partners was named by Forbes as one of America’s Best Executive Recruiting Firms. The firm was ranked 17th in Hunt Scanlon’s annual roundup of the top 50 recruiters in the Americas based on revenue – the highest organic growth rate among the nation’s top 20 executive search firms and outpacing the annual industry average. In addition, ON Partners is proud to be named to Hunt Scanlon’s Private Equity Recruiting Power 75 list that encompasses the nation’s leading executive search firms driving leadership results in the private equity sector. Hunt Scanlon also ranked ON Partners to its first annual list of the Top 50 Healthcare & Life Sciences Search Firms and its New York Power 60 list which encompasses the leading executive search firms driving leadership results in the New York market.
