ON Partners named to Minneapolis / St. Paul Business Journal list of top retained executive search firms

ON Partners, the experience-driven retained executive search firm, has been named to the Minneapolis/St.Paul Business Journal top list of retained executive search firms. The list encompasses the largest and most prominent leading executive search firms in the cities of Minneapolis/St.Paul.

Minneapolis-based partner, Baillie Parker, has completed over 300 C-level, board, and high-level executive searches across a range of functions. With a strong focus on private equity across the technology and industrial sectors, Parker’s experience in building executive leadership teams has solidified ON Partners’ consistent recognition of success among retained executive search firms in the Minneapolis and St. Paul area.

In his article 8 Key Traits for a CEO in 2020 and Beyond, Parker notes, “To accomplish the kind of sweeping, transformative change organizations often require, a transformational or “turnaround” CEO is necessary. The ideal turnaround CEO candidate possesses a unique set of attributes that make him or her the right choice for organizations in distress.” Find the full article written by Parker here.
