Building C-level and board leadership teams across industries.


At ON Partners, we defy the institution of executive search to deliver you a better experience.

ON Partners is a pure-play retained executive search firm building C-level and board leadership teams. The company was founded in 2006 with a mission to rebuild executive search to make it an easier, better experience for clients and candidates and the way they work.

Our executive search partners are less limited in what types of companies and candidates they can work with or how they grow their practices. Each of our partners brings specialized expertise across industries and functions at the C-level and board.

Think of our partners as a team of MVPs who are free to build their own portfolios and team up to give you the best combination of marketplace expertise, prioritized consulting, and a wider range of candidate networks.
