ON Partners Experiences 44% Yoy Growth

Jun 2, 2020

Named to Forbes list of best recruiting firms and ranked among industry’s top 50 healthcare & life sciences search firms



CLEVELAND — (BUSINESS WIRE) – JUNE 2, 2020ON Partners, the experience-driven retained executive search firm, today announced the firm grew 44% over the past 12 months – the highest organic growth rate among the nation’s top 20 executive search firms and outpacing the annual industry average. The firm ranked 17th in market research firm Hunt Scanlon’s annual roundup of the top 50 recruiters in the Americas based on revenue, moving up three positions, and was named to its first annual list of the Top 50 Healthcare & Life Sciences Search Firms. ON has also once again been named by Forbes as one of America’s Best Executive Recruiting Firms.

In the first half of 2020, ON’s team of experienced consultants placed C-level executives and board members at a range of organizations, including Pizza Hut Digital Ventures, NVIDIA, Bazaarvoice, AECOM, Marlin Equity Partners and Information Builders. Serving the healthcare and life sciences sector since the firm’s inception, ON consultants build executive leadership teams for organizations such as IGM Biosciences, Illumina, Sangamo Therapeutics, SOC Telemed and Thermo Fisher Scientific.

Additions this year to the firm’s experienced roster of consultants include Michael Lynch, who joined the firm as a San Francisco-based partner. With more than 20 years of experience in executive search, he focuses on CEO, C-level and board executive placements in engineering and operationally driven environments.

The firm’s collective expertise spans industries and functions, including C-level and board leadership search assignments in tech, consumer, industrial and life sciences in the private and public sectors – with over 150 C-level and board leadership placements in 2019 alone. When surveyed about working with ON, clients ranked the firm an average of 4.7 out of 5 for “overall experience.”

“Eighty-five percent of our searches over the past year were with clients who have worked with us more than once, which speaks volumes to the importance of the experience in the search process,” noted ON Partners co-founder and managing partner Tim Conti. “Right now, we’re striving to help clients and candidates make the most of these uncertain times we’re all living and working through.”

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, ON developed a series of experience-driven tools designed to help clients and candidates, including an executive assessment and onboarding guide; tips on how to interview virtually; and a collective forecast from ON consultants about what to expect post-pandemic across several industries, including supply chain, ecommerce, private equity, telecom and telemedicine, software and life sciences.





ON Partners propels an organization’s mission by building C-level and board leadership teams. Founded in 2006 by like-minded consultants as a values-driven alternative to the multi-service global firms they were leaving behind, ON delivers a better executive search experience. The firm has been named to the Inc. 500/5000 Lists six times, was named to the Inc. 5000 Hall of Fame in 2018 and is consistently ranked among the top 20 retained executive search firms in the U.S.  Follow our work, updates and recent success on Twitter and LinkedIn.
