Our Benchmarks


We strive to deliver a level of service and results that exceed the both the expectations of our clients and the standards of the executive search profession.

We continuously measure our success. We utilize benchmarks that differ from those that our competitors frequently use to evaluate performance, such as company stock price or consultant's annual billings. Rather, we apply benchmarks that evaluate our clients’ ROI and overall performance ratings in retaining the services of Briant Associates.
