ON Partners ranked in America’s Top 49 Retained Executive Search Firms List

ON Partners, the leading pure-play retained executive search firm, has been ranked 11th on the C-Suite CV Secure 2022 ranking of America’s Top 49 Retained Executive Search firms. This is the second consecutive year ON Partners has been ranked on the list.

C-Suite CV Secure, a New York-headquartered resume sharing and tracking technology company, reaches out to thousands of senior executives every year – both candidates and clients to gather feedback about their experience with search firms across the US and Europe. In 2022, the public survey ran in October and forms an integral part of the overall ranking process. With over 7,800 respondents from over 54 industries and sectors, both candidates and clients provide valuable insights into their view of the market.

“Business has been historically good for ON Partners,” said Matt Mooney, partner at ON Partners. “We continue to grow at unprecedented organic rates and solidify our partnerships with top brands across a range of industries. Companies are still hungry for top talent, and even where we are seeing early adversity, companies are simply adapting to the type of talent that may be needed in a more challenging economic environment.”

The firm published the first half 2022 Executive Talent Report covering talent-hiring trends and the most recent executive appointments across industry sectors. ON has collaborated with a range of organizations thus far this year including Papa Johns, MindBody, AdeptAG, Tailwind Capital, Logitech, and more.

Furthermore, ON announced in a press release earlier this year its top 50 executive recruiting firm ranking in Forbes, along with being named one of America’s best executive search firms by Hunt Scanlon, listed as one of the only pure-play executive search firms in the top 20 with organic growth. ON Partners recently announced the firm has been ranked fifth on Crain’s Cleveland Business Best Employers 2022 list for small-to-medium sized businesses.

Additionally, ON was named to the Inc. 5000 list this year. This marks the firm’s ninth appearance on the list, with ON Partners reporting an impressive 115% three-year revenue growth and 81% growth over the last year.

“We’ve seen 40% growth in our life sciences practice over the last year and our consumer practice has doubled,” said ON Partners co-founder and managing partner Tim Conti. “Plus, we continue to see tremendous demand, particularly in CEO, C-level and board searches not just in sustainability and clean tech, but in private equity as well.”

Last year, ON celebrated its 15th anniversary and commemorated its years in executive search at an all-company gathering this past April in Florida.

“We’ve gone from seven to 60 people since I’ve been here,” said Bryan Buck, partner at ON Partners. “It was a bit surreal sitting in our last companywide offsite, looking around, and seeing just how far we’ve come. Most companies don’t make it past five years, and even fewer past 10. Through a lot of hard work – and luck – we’ve been able to build something really special  and resilient around great people.”
